To wrap things up, we thought we’d go out with a bang. When we said Nixon’s watch collection is diverse, we weren’t kidding. The A1180 is a digital timepiece
It’s a digital watch on the smaller side of things. Its case only stretches 1.45 inches (37 mm)
across. It’s rectangular, which isn’t something you see that often in analog pieces. The case shape makes the A1180 look retro.
It’s the most durable watch on our list. It comes with a silicone and resin body
, so it can handle some beatings. If you’re wondering why it’s because the materials are shock-resistant. This isn’t a surprise as the Regulus was made for outdoor use.
It is also the most luminous entry we’ve reviewed. It doesn’t come with any luminous paint, but has a strong backlight. Even without the backlight, the display is easy to read. It’s LED, so it’s bright.
Being a digital watch, the A118 comes with a range of features. This includes an alarm, world-time, a silent mode, and stopwatch.
Being made for the outdoors, it’s no surprise that it can handle considerable depths underwater. It’s resistant up to 330 feet (100 meters)
. As it’s a mix of resin and silicone, it’s more than fit for a dip in the pool. The materials are very water-proof. With the flick of a wrist, you’ll get water off.
As they’re so waterproof, the two make the Regulus even better for out-door use – dirt all over your watch will never be an issue.
Many digital timepieces made for the outdoors are solar-powered. Unfortunately, the A1180 doesn’t offer this luxury. You’ll have to change its batteries regularly.
Unfortunately, it has another mineral window. All 5 watches on our list have the glass as their crystal.
What makes it special: It’s a digital device.
