Nixon watches cover all sides of the horology spectrum, but the brand is best known for its sports watches. That means big dials, hard-wearing cases, and steel or rubber straps. That’s perhaps why the new design — the Nixon Thalia — stands out so much within the collection.
The minimal aesthetic of the Nixon Thalia stands as a bold departure from the brand’s specialties but there’s no sign that this is out of Nixon’s expertise. Built to showcase a more elegant, softer side to Nixon’s watch design, it’s built around subtle detailing like the date window display, custom wing-engraved crown, and stainless steel bow-shaped looper.
While the Nixon Thalia is marketed as a women’s watch, its stripped-back visuals make it a gender-neutral option. The slim profile of the watch is complemented by a 38mm case size featuring even-number numerals.
Just because it looks more elegant doesn’t mean that it skips Nixon’s durability tests, by the way. The solid stainless steel case and caseback are pressure tested with a water rating of 50m. Combine that with the stainless steel buckle and keeper as well as perimeter stitching to the band and you’ve got a watch that’s as durable as it is graceful.
Finally, under the hood, you’ve got a Miyota Japanese quartz 3-hand movement with date function. This is a well-respected and highly reliable movement that works in harmony with the no-frills appearance.
