Nodus Retrospect

Post by Racer-X » August 11th 2018, 8:04pm

"Nodus Watches set a high bar when they released the Trieste last year. That watch delivered a clean, meticulously balanced design and top-notch execution at an almost unbeatable price. Given my admiration for that model, I was anxious to get my hands on their next offering. The folks at Nodus provided a pair of press loaners in Industrial Brown and Frost White for evaluation, (they also have a Slate Gray variant). You might expect something called "Retrospect" to be a line-for-line homage, but Nodus did not take that approach. Instead, they adopted some cherished retro design cues and updated them, creating a thoroughly contemporary watch."

Perhaps useless as a dive watch, but for daily wear and desk diving, why not? Looks rather good, I'd say.

Nice look to it at the right price with the Seiko stalwart movement in there.

Hell, I'd buy one. If I was looking for a watch which I'm not. But I would if I was.

A friend of mine recently bought the Retrospect, and likes it. It's not a bad-looking watch. But I guess it doesn't do for me what the DH 1970 does twice as well already. Save perhaps the lume - heard Nodus did a good job with that, while the DH 1970's lume certifiably blows.
