Yes, I posted a custom BWD Rolex last week. Not exactly the accessible timepiece for the modern guy – even the successful one. So taking a step back into affordable territory has me looking at Nixon. Known for it’s West Coast lifestyle wears, they certainly have a full stable of timepieces. Everything from digital and plastic to ceramic to gems and automatic movements are covered. In the vain of the blacked-out Deep Sea, I give you the Rover Chrono. Yes, it sports a comfy silicon band, but it’s easy style, chronograph features combine for an uncompromising design.
A Miyota Japanese quartz 6-hand chrono with 24hr subdial and date powers the timepiece. Bold printed indices, seconds track and custom molded hands with luminous fill provide the look. Housed in a 44mm 10 ATM stainless and custom molded screw-down, it wraps the wrist in an injection molded 23mm bracelet with steel buckle. The piece sells for $275 and is sure to be a popular piece.
