Nodus Avalon II Offers 300m Resistance

An L.A. based watch company, Nodus are offering good value dive and dress watches. They have an updated Avalon model. Here’s the word from them, via Watch Gecko;

Nodus is Latin for Node, an intersection of paths that blend the classic with the contemporary. The company was founded in 2017 by two watch enthusiasts, with an ethos that put function-first design to the forefront.

Nodus believes their watches are built for the important things in life and have crafted their timepieces to last through the decades.

Built in-house in Los-Angeles, Nodus ensures their watches not only meet their own high standards but surpass the wearer’s expectations as well.

The Nodus Avalon is now in its second iteration, and it’s better than ever. The 43.5mm cushion case is very reminiscent of Seiko’s iconic dive watches, whilst still having an identity all its own.

With a screw down crown and case back, the steel case has an impressive 300m water resistance that will be plenty for anyone looking to take their watch swimming or diving. The 120-click unidirectional bezel features a glossy ceramic insert that’s fully lumed for use in the dark, and the watch uses a sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating on its underside.

The Avalon also marks the debut of the Nodus NodeX clasp on the bracelet. This clasp offers on the fly micro-adjustment at the push of a button, and enables to wear to achieve the perfect fit with no fuss. The bracelet also features quick-release spring bars for fast strap changes.

The Avalon uses a Miyota 9015 automatic movement. Nodus have taken the time to regulate this 24-jewel Japanese calibre to be accurate to and impressive +/- 8 seconds per day.

Verdict; 300m of water resistance is impressive for £625, we love the waffle dial finish too, although a Miyota movement is perhaps not as appealing a Seiko unit.
