It took me forever to decide which one I would splurge on. It's not exactly cheap but neither is it expensive compared to signature watches we're so used to seeing out there. I'm not big on the brand, I'm big on the SIZE.
Ever since the advent of oversized watches on teeny tiny wrists, I've never looked back. For me, a watch is not a watch when it's not oversized.
Through Newtrends International, Nixon has recent presence in the Philippines. Their store, Segnatempo carries the brand and I learned from the sales people there that their Nixon pieces are selling fast! Too bad they don't carry the gold tones, as according to them gold tone watches usually have the lowest sell throughs.
Anyhoo, I scoured online shops carrying Nixon. From Net-a-porter, to Amazon, to Nordstorm. I finally found what I was looking for in Ebay! Yes in Ebay! At an offering no other store has.
It was a tough choice between the all-gold tone and the antique gold tone. I finally settled for the antique gold, which someone else was happy with too, apparently.
P.S. She is strongly convinced that the gold studded Jean&Rosz bracelet is hers(!) and that I'm only borrowing. She would cry and fuss if she sees me wearing it without asking for permission. My goodness, what have I created?
