After so many days spent out on the water, after so many sessions, the ocean becomes automatic. Surf, swim, sail, dive, fish, or float, it's all connected. All those hours in the salt and sun demand a timepiece purpose-built for the waterman's life. The Nixon Steelcat is it. With its muscular 30 ATM stainless steel case and a shock absorbing rubber bezel, this watch is every bit as tough as it is refined. It features 5 hand Swiss quartz chronograph with minutes center hand timer, screw down crown at 9 O'clock position, and a custom injected silicone band with patented locking looper and custom molded stainless steel buckle.
What is jewel movement? Great question. It's our understanding that the jewels provide the lubricant needed so the pins and moving parts (the guts of the watch) do not become out of synch or simply seize up over years of use. More jewels lead to more accuracy, longevity and expense.
How wide is the case and the band? Case is 48mm wide, band is 30mm wide.
