Great watch with some things to consider..,
This review is from: Fossil Men's JR1401 Nate Stainless Steel Watch with Link Bracelet (Watch)
I ordered this watch brand new with tags off of ebay for a great price. I really liked the Nixon 51-30 and this Fossil version was the closest I've seen without having to spend close to $500. I actually paid $65 for mine and it's legit.
A couple things to consider is that this watch is only water resistant up to 50m. This means you cannot take this watch swimming with you, although you can bathe with it, etc. The Nixon, on the other hand, is a dive watch and thus you are free to do whatever you want with it. To me this wasn't really an issue.
The watch itself is great. It's large, quality made, and dark. The matte black finish its pretty nice in my opinion. I have heard people say the metal band squeaks a little bit and it does, but only when taken off. When the watch is being worn it makes no noise. When you take it off and the hinges have more freedom to move around that's when you get the squeakiness. I am sure it's nothing a little WD-40 couldn't fix.
For such a low price you really can't go wrong.
