Shaun Neff launched Neff Headwear in 2002. The company makes fashion hats, sunglasses and watches for the action sports crowd and is still based in Neff’s native Southern California.
Neff Headwear’s fun, poppy design appeals to young surfer, skaters and skiers. Neff reaches out to extreme-sports fans by sponsoring teams in the X Games.
Available for men, women, and kids, they offer fun styles in bright colors work for anyone who’s looking for a little flair.
Neff watches are inexpensive, topping out at about $75. Quite a few are in the $30 range. Many have silicone straps and plastic cases, although there are more traditional styles available with metal cases and fabric straps.
The primary reason you’d buy a Neff watch is because you’re looking for a fun accessory for the slopes or the beach: the line’s main selling point is the cheerful, youthful style.
Neff watch designs range from merely colorful to truly wild—in fact there’s a “Daily Wild” collection featuring bold geometric prints, camo…even monster teeth. There’s an “Old school” digital collection; and other watches come in rasta colors, or dayglo pink, yellow and green.
Neff watches aren’t for the office, they’re for wearing while you’re having fun outside. They make great secondary watches, and are considered to be reasonably durable considering how inexpensive they are.
While customers seem generally pleased with these watches, there can be quality issues. Given the watches’ low price point this isn’t unexpected. However it seems that if there are no problems within the first couple of weeks of ownership the watch’s lifespan is typical compared to similarly priced watches.
Many models made for adults are purchased for (and loved by) kids as well, and it appears that they may be sized with youth in mind: occasionally adult customers note that the wrist bands aren’t big enough for large hands, although the problem seems to be isolated to a few styles.
