Careful Deliberation X Final 3 Options: Watches Selection

Candidate #1

NIXON

The Rerun

USD 125

via official NIXON

Nikon Re-run all black steel 03

The Re-run story:

TIME TRAVEL SEEMED POSSIBLE

You might not have Christopher Lloyd

wildly gesticulating at you all the time,

but at least you've got

a watch that plays the part.

 

The Re-Run's 80s styling might

have you nostalgic for

the last time time travel seemed

possible,

nay, probable.

 

With an all-digital calendar, dual time,

alarm, countdown and light,

you won't need that nutty scientist to

get all the facts and gigawatts straight.

Because it was sort of weird that

they were hanging out so much anyway.

Movement

Custom multi-function digital module with

calendar, dual time, alarm,

countdown timer and light functions.

Dial

Negative display LCD.

Case

38.5 mm, 30 meter,

custom solid stainless steel case,

hardened mineral crystal,

injection molded polyurethane pushers,

solid stainless steel snap fit caseback and

spring pin lugs.

Band

13-18 mm tapered custom 5 link stainless steel

jewelry style bracelet and

stainless steel locking clasp.

Nixon

Founded in 1998 in Encinitas, CA,

Nixon is the premium watch and accessories

brand for the youth lifestyle market.

 

Focused on making the little stuff better,

Nixon began with a small line of

team-designed, custom-built watches

sold exclusively in specialty

Candidate #2:

Nooka

ZOO Mirror

USD 270

USD 108

via Watchismo

Nooka Zoo Mirror 03

 

The second version (V Series) of the

Nooka Zoo sports a full-face mineral crystal lens,

making it as easy to clean as

wiping with the edge of

your designer-label T-shirt!

The Nooka Zoo-V also has some nifty features:

a chronograph for timing your poker games, and

an alarm to get you up in the morning.

The large window displays hours

(months in date mode) and

the row above counts minutes.

 

Housed in stainless steel with an LCD display,

the watch has an EL backlight, and

stainless steel mesh strap with

adjustable sliding clasp.

It is 35 x 35 x 10mm with

28mm wide band

Modes

Time, Date, Chronograph and Alarm.

Nooka

is NYC designer Matthew Waldman's

NYC watch brand spawned from

his lifelong desire to see time represented in

untraditional ways.

The Nooka watches feature linear displays of

LCD bars, dots, dashes, and

the occasional digit.

 


Candidate #3:

Pebble

Steel

USD 249

Pebble Steel black matte

 

Pebble Steel takes everything

you know and love about Pebble—

the crystal clear ePaper display,

weeklong battery life, and

waterproof design—and

wraps it a smaller, thinner package.

 

It’s made of forged and

CNC-machined stainless steel.

The display is protected by a

Corning Gorilla Glass lens with

an oleophobic, anti-fingerprint coating.

 

The housing also subtly incorporates

a RGB LED light to

indicate charge status.

 

Like the original Pebble,

Pebble Steel is waterproof up to 5 ATM.

 

Pebble Steel comes in two finishes:

Brushed Stainless and Black Matte.

 

All models are bundled with

both a matching metal band and

a black leather strap.

 

The Black Matte Pebble Steel is

crafted using a process called Physical Vapor

Deposition to provide a

tactile, deep black finish that’s

also ultra-durable.

Battery

Lithium-ion polymer battery lasts

5-7 days between charges.

USB charging cable with magnetic connector included.

Case

46mm L x 34mm W x 10.5mm T

Weight

1.97 oz (56g)

3.49oz (99g) with metal watchband

To 5ATM (metal band only)

Pebble

“I'm the customizable watch for

iOS & Android.

Apps + Watch Faces +

Notifications + Workout Stats +

Remote Controls + Open SDK =

#TinyMomentsOfAwesome.”

 

Pebble is the smartwatch that

85,000+ people brought to life

through Kickstarter.

After setting the Kickstarter funding record,

Pebble has continued to

develop into a fully-functional and

customizable smartwatch ecosystem.
