Nautica Watches

Seasons are changing. This time… for the better. Spring is in the air. I am finally shedding my thick shawl-collar sweaters and trading them in for my essential dock gear. Seemingly, I have covered all of the bases for my new spring wardrobe. A couple pairs of docks shoes, a handful of classic Dreamland Apparel T’s, an assortment of smart khakis and of course my usual onslaught of not-yet-popular-to-the-masses sunglasses. Although, as I glance over to my night table, I realize there is room for a little expansion. Mainly in the watch department.

If you’ve read any of my early blogs, you will remember the various “Time-Check” pieces. Within these posts, I have reviewed various watches that caught my attention. Nixon, being the most covered brand, garnered the most inspiration for myself. Although, after reviewing the Nautica Watches 2011 Spring/Summer collection, I couldn’t help but become intrigued by some of the simplistic beauty in which they possess.

Like most things in my closet, these watches represent the timeless elegance and class that I so infinitely strive for. A demonstration of function & form in the highest caliber. For such class, such beauty and such precision, it is a wonder that these timepieces range in price from only $100-$500.

    Nothing says Dreamland like Dock gear! You taught me that long ago, and it good to see you preaching! Great piece, and as for great time pieces… I love that black & brass number at the bottom ;) SLIME!

    I’m a fan of Nautica and man these designs are dope. I been looking for a new affordable watch for some time now, where can I cop one live and not on the net?

      I’ve seen them in the Bay before. That would be your best bet. Some really nice pieces eh? I was definitely impressed as well.

      • Chris Elliott

        I too, have grown tired of the metal bands. Rubber or Leather is the new thing.

        Neither can I! It’s all about the leather or rubber bands!

    wow the one with the black band & cooper face is SO nice!

    • Chris Elliott

      I know eh! I’m addicted and I had to seriously hold back from copping one of these today ahaha.

    Black band and copper for sure! I have a pretty intense watch obsession. Great Post. Actually in the market for a new watch. I’d be more into that Black and Copper coloured Nautica if it had a leather band. The rubber looks cheap.

    Noticed you mentioned Nixon. Used to be into nixon, had the black Nixon player when it first came out, then 5 years later everyone was wearing them. Nautica is a watch brand that has been swept under the rug, but these designs look great!

      Couldn’t agree with you more sir. However, I will say, that as of late I’ve become a sucker for the rubber band. I understand what you’re saying about it look cheap. Although, to me, it provides that sporty edge that the others lack.

      I’m glad you dig these watches though. Definitely a classy collection.
