At first glance, it doesn't look like a smart watch. And that's the entire point. Like the Stop the Time Watch before it, the Calendar Watch uses its connection to your phone to enable a single time-saving feature without losing its mechanical heritage. In this case, that feature is the ability to display your daily calendar, using an E-paper display that serves and the dial and a vibration motor for alerting you to your next meeting. The rechargeable battery lasts for weeks, the hands and dial are protected by domed sapphire glass, and the interchangeable lugs and bands let you customize the watch to suit your tastes.
Inspired by the characters and stories of the films, Nixon Star Wars Watches are a more subtle way to show your fandom than your typical tee or tie. Available in a wide variety of sizes and styles, each timepiece has details specific to its inspiration, like exposed wires that serve as hour markers on the C-3PO Sentry, or the Time Teller's pillowed leather band that recalls Vader's gloves. All of the watches are powered by accurate Miyota Japanese quartz or custom digital movements and feature special engraving on the case back, including the Star Wars logo, either the portrait of a character or some other insignia, the model name, and a brief quote from the films.
The team at Zelos Watches have quickly carved out a nice following amongst consumers who care about minimalist design and high quality craftsmanship. And now, they're taking the already successful Chroma line up a notch with three limited edition releases. Choose from Bronze, which will patina beautifully with regular wear, Carbon Fiber, which is lightweight and versatile, and Damascus Steel, a material used to make high quality knives and boasts an appealing woodgrain pattern. Each watch also features Miyota 821A automatic movement and a new luminous paint on the hands and indices for easier viewing. But procrastinating is not recommended, as 100 or less of each watch was produced.
