The 51-30 watch by Nixon features custom 3 hand Swiss movement with an easy to read tide subdial. The case is stainless steel with a hardened mineral crystal face and external rotating bezel. The crown is at the 9:00 position next to the quick adjust button for easy setting of the tide subdial. The band is solid stainless steel with a brushed finish and a double locking clasp. Tested to 300m depth.

Comment: Nixon 51-30 Tide Watch is attractive but quite large and heavy. The "Tide Clock" window is too small and gets covered by the hour hand at certain times making it hard to read. A serious problem for navigating shallow waters when a short window of time is available to avoid running aground or worse!
