Nixon Automatic Chrono LTD Review

Nixon Automatic Chrono LTD Watch Review
Officially now available for sale and released by Nixon, the new Automatic Chrono LTD. This limited addition has the tag "TICK TOCK, YOU DON'T STOP" and can be found written on the case back. Sound familiar? Yeah, big Beastie Boys fans here at W&R. Almost makes you have to like the watch!
The dial layout is clean and easy to read. Nicely applied indices markers. Though, it is lacking a date function, this is one of the very reasons the dial is uncluttered. The overall dial is a refreshing change from all the chronograph busy dials that have been coming out lately. Using the trusted and loved Valjoux 7750 automatic movement, this watch could last a lifetime with this engine under the hood. 
Not usually a big crocodile strap lover, BUT this Nixon looks killer on the black croc strap. Hopefully, Nixon will release a watch similar to this one, that is not as limited and priced more for the masses. Well done!
