This Is the Ideal Affordable Beach Watch for This Summer

Nixon’s latest surfing-inspired watch is affordable and fun, perfect for casual wear and beachy frollicking — or even catching waves.


Surfers have a set of very specific needs related to their pursuit of waves, and Nixon’s strong surfing watch credentials translate well into some fun and versatile beachgoing wristwear. With a range of new colors, the Nixon Siren is ready for gnarly waves with 100m of water resistance and durability features including the use of hardened mineral crystal. Basic tide features add another level of functionality useful for actual surfing or just finding the best beach-lounging experience.

On a soft silicon strap, Nixon is going for a casual, fashionable accessory as well. The Siren gets extra points for having a pretty legible negative display (light text on dark background), which isn’t always the case with these readouts. The Nixon Siren is 38mm wide and available in seven mostly colorful options for a price of $100.
