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 dial and integrated lugs conceal the capsulated mechanics lying within. Both of these collections are available now at Watchismo in their Nixon Watch collection.
