    Nixon ceramic player question

    I'm thinking about purchasing a preowned white Nixon ceramic player. Has anyone ever encountered any discoloration with the whiteness of the band, etc? I've heard of other white watch companies being notorious for this. Anyone owned one for an extended period of time that can give me their opinion or review?

    Thanks all!

    My advice would be to hang around the forums for awhile before opting for a Nixon. I recommend fully investigating other affordable options such as Seiko, Sea-Gull, Orient, Tissot, and Hamilton before jumping into anything.

    The material the band is made of should be an excellent indicator of whether it will darken. Is the used watch you are looking at showing discoloration?

    And of course any white watch is going to show dirt, sweat, etc., much more than stainless steel even if the surface is non porous and easily washed.

    The material itself should not discolor for a long time. However if the hard smooth surface is in any way worn or abraded the material will likely discolor from absorption as well as a change in the way the surface reflects light.
