Watchismo's showing some very cool automatic mechanical timepieces from Nixon Watches. The Swiss made Nixon Automatic II watch is an upgrade to one of their first mechanical classics, now with an improved design and more attitude: "Auto F*king Matic" is right on the caseback. Seen from the rear sapphire crystal porthole. Pre-order them at Watchismo.com.
The Nixon Mellor Automatic watch expresses itself through cool mid-century minimalism. Perfected with a lack of detail, this mechanical machine is simultaneously simple and complex.

The 44mm Klok watch started life as a crowdfunding campaign and has now graduated to full-fledged article of commerce, priced between €400-430.

Unlike traditional lighters, the SaberLight features an electronic plasma beam that’s both rechargeable and butane-free. This sleek lighter is even approved by TSA, so you’ll never be stuck buying lighters you’ll just have to throw away partially used. For some people, like me, this is a pretty big game-changer. The SaberLight’s beam is actually both hotter and cleaner […]
