Should I purchase an automatic or quartz Nixon watch?
Nixon automatic watches are hand made. They contain hundres of moving mechanical parts, and they are usually less accurate than a quartz watch. As each watch has a different movement, the level of accuracy is variable depending on the model. The tolerance specifications for a Nixon watch is from +40 seconds to -10 seconds a day. That works out to be +20 minutes or -5 minutes per month.
A Nixon watch with a quartz movement is more accurate. It's powered by a battery and the secoond hand will tick rather than the smooth, sweeping motion of an automatic. A quartz movement is more economical, it requires less maintenance, and they utilize a quartz crystal to create the vibrations required for the movement to oscillate. This requires much fewer moving parts than automatic watch, and so may be seen as less desirable due to the lack of craftmanship required. Whatever your movement of choice, and whatever style you're after, you're sure to find a great Nixon watch to buy right here on eBay.
