Believe it or not, watch wearers used to have to wind up their wristwatch manually or it would simply stop ticking. Sounds like a nuisance, right? It was.

This aided reliability and precision — two keywords for Nixon automatic watches.
Nixon automatic watches run the gamut of contemporary timepieces. Ranging from affordable pieces like the Spectra and 5th Element to full-blown luxury styles in the Supremacy and Diplomacy.

Nixon's latest automatic design is already its best-selling. The Nixon Spectra features a skeleton back to show you the neat inner workings of the design which you can also spy from the dial.
The Nixon Supremacy Watch is undoubtedly one of the brand's more refined offerings. Boasting a Swiss-made automatic movement, it pays homage to the history of iconic watches that rely on high-end Swiss design.

Built around a Swiss movement, Diplomatic features a bigger dial than the rest of Nixon's automatic watches. Standing at 46mm in diameter, we're loving the yellow dial against the black casing.
A smoothly domed crystal case sets the elegant tone for 5th Element. This automatic timepiece features a striking transparent caseback as well as LUME markers to ensure that the understated design never goes unnoticed.
