When you head out for a night at the bars, ditch that cheap-ass plastic job and strap on the Nixon Men’s Volta Watch. This stainless steel watch reeks of class and style, and the solar-charging Japanese movement keeps you on time without batteries or winding.

Discrete, it ain't.

I've liked Nixon's original approaches to watch design for a while. The main attraction of this one is that it's solar, and will have less need for upkeep. I also am happier with rubber/plastic bands than metal. Nixon's bands have unique holders that keep the tip end of the band securely in place, not that I can recall losing a watch because its band came unbuckled. But I've lost watches because the pin connecting the band to the watch failed. Nixon's reinvented that, too. Take a look at the bolt ends on the watch sandwich photo.

The gunmetal finish looks good, though I wonder whether it'll age well. The stainless case on that old watch survived working in the swamps of Florida and outdoor summers in Wyoming. So stainless is good.

Despite the face being the diameter of an egg (the back side says "Sunny Side Up"), it's slender enough to be comfortable. It'll do while I wait for a Nixon tide watch slimmer than The 42-20.

Top of the watch sandwich is a Nixon 42-20 (knobs are on the other side). Middle is a gunmetal Nixon Volta PU. Bottom is a 1970s mechanical watch.

The Volta PU is enormously big, but it's not terribly thick, compared to the 42-20.

Nixon Volta PU (gunmetal with red numbers), Nixon 42-20 (white face) and a 1970s mechanical watch for size comparison.

How big is the face to this watch?
