In good nick

When we see something that very old but still look new, we usually say " it's in good condition" but British people will say " it's in good nick". The phrase to describe anything else in good condition. 
Examples:
1. I pick up a set of silver plates from an antique shop and they were in pretty good nick.
2. My grandpa loves his 1960s motorbike and has worked very hard to kept it in good nick.
3. I got presents for my children to last the rest of the year, I pick up this little gem and it's in good nick.
