Nixon R1g1 Watches Prove Analog is Still in Style
August 26th, 2008
Maybe I’m just too geeky, but I have a tendency to be drawn to ultra-modern digital watches. But sometimes there’s nothing like a good, old-fashioned analog dial. At least the guys over at Nixon are thinking a little outside the box with their latest analog watch design, the fashionably geeky R1G1.
The R1G1 ($150 to $200 USD) features a set of four mechanical hands to keep track of time and date. Two hands rotate around the middle of the dial, one displaying seconds and the other showing minutes. A pair of speedometer-like gauges display the current hour and the day of the month.
Each watch is powered by a quartz movement housed in a sleek brushed stainless steel case. All four hands live beneath a sturdy hardened mineral glass crystal to keep them safe and sound. They’re available in several different color ways, all with stylish leather bands.
You can find all four R1G1 designs over at NixonNow.
