Nixon Optimist User Reviews

Evangeline says, “Love this watch! It’s gorgeous in person and I love that it’s solar so I never need to replace a battery. I had to take a couple links out but now it fits perfectly and looks great. Mine ticked very slowly out of the box but once I got it into the sun it sped right up! Great watch for the price and very nice quality.”

Dawn says, “A beautiful, classic, timeless piece.”
