“YAY!” or “NAY”?
The Nixon Corporal Quartz A346-510-00 Men’s Watch is an impressive watch for those with a dislike for weak faces. It’s not also covered with glass that easily scratches. Neither the case finish. Both are stronger and more scratch-resistant than any other watch within the price category. The raised rim surrounding the crystal is an added protection against sudden knocks and bumps. Or, call it a recessed crystal.
The Nixon Corporal Quartz A346-510-00 Men’s Watch has a very, very pretty crown. The Nixon logo stays under an enamel layer which prevents it from getting scratched. Very solidly built, heavy but looks good in an understated yet elegant way.
Those who find the Nixon Watches unusually large for their wrist will be surprised with its no overhang approach. This, however, is not true for those with less than a 6-inch wrist, unless you deliberately want it to overhang.
Bottom line: The Nixon 51 – 30 Chrono Quartz Men’s Watch blends strategically a robust build with an immensely disciplined design. The display of the superior style turns out to be forceful in its expert craftsmanship shaping the in-s and around-s of its trendy exterior.
