    new Nixon

    New Nixon Wolf Pack The Brigade. Was surfing on ebay and picked this up on a whim. $50 new in box.
    I was attracted by the internal rotating bezel feature. I liked the simple dial too.
    When I got the watch I found I didn't like the leather strap. I switched to a bracelet that I already had.
    The straight end link of this particular bracelet looked good with the case design which is straight
    between the lugs. These bracelets can be picked up on AliEx on sale sometimes for less than $10.

    That looks good. Nixon is my favorite guilty pleasure fashion watch brand. The problem is everything they make seems to be way to big for me to pull off.

    A bit boxey for me.

    I think it lacks some of their usual sporty appeal. I want to feel like I am wearing a surf/skate watch.

    The crown in 4 o'clock position is for time setting and crown in 2 o'clock position for rotating inner bezel.

    See that raised ring on the outside of the dial? It rotates when you turn the 2 o'clock crown. This enables you to measure elapsed time.

    Excellent idea. A video might help you to understand what an inner bezel is about.

    The rotating inner bezel was likely introduced by Aquastar in the 1960s. With this construction the bezel is located inside the watch and is thus protected by the crystal, giving the watch a more elegant look. The bezel can only be operated with a (usually additional) screw in crown, quite often in both directions (exceptions include the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver, Hublot Oceanographic, etc.).
    Kind regards
