Nixon - The Quatro

It's quite a simple but classic design watch for me today.

The watch I chose to wear today is called The Quatro and is by the American brand Nixon. Nixon are a lifestyle accessory brand started in California in 1998.

The Quatro is a square 3 hand dial watch which comes in a variety of colours (-9 different combinations). This model is the Sanded Steel /White model, and has a stainless steel case with a brushed steel face. The face is split into 9 squares with the 4 squares at 12, 3, 6, and 9 brushed one way, and the other squares brushed the other meaning they reflect light differently and so the pattern shifts as the watch moves.

As with all of the Nixon watches, there is a tag line on the back which this time is "Full Throttle". The website also says that this is "First in its class and first of its kind" and the watch has "rips with the controlled grace that comes from knowing what you have and when to use it".

Inside, there is a Japanese Miyota (Citizen) movement, and the watch is 100m water resistant.

The watch is still available from Nixon at $125.
