The tortoise is back…..


One of the stars of this year’s edition of Baselworld is the watch of the US-based fashion watch brand Nixon.

They have created a watch with inlays of tortoise.

But don’t worry not the genuine stuff. Poor animals. Nixon’s and their suppliers have developed a process using chips made of polycarbonate. These chips can be milled or stamped like metal and afford a unique look to the watch’s bezel and the links of the bracelet.

According to Nixon’s the material resists wear and tear better than steel and is light-weight.

It better had be as the watches sporting this new material are rather large.

Judging from the trek of the development people of many watch brands to the Nixon booth in hall 1.1 Nixon’s are having a winner.

I'm not sure I'm crazy about that particular watch -- but I think that the tortoise-shell look is very cool.

Thanks for sharing the photo!
