Nautica, the global lifestyle brand known for its connection to the water, is now leveraging the sun’s energy in a new eco-friendly, solar powered timepiece, the NMX 1000. Part of the new Nautica Sport Technology category, this ready-for-adventure sport watch connects the sea and the sun in a bold, dive-style design. Featuring a Japanese solar movement housed in a 48mm stainless steel case with a uni-directional turning top ring, luminous hands and markers, and a date window at 3 o’clock, the NMX 1000 links technology and adventure in a smart, sport watch. The NMX 1000 uses a solar cell beneath the dial to convert light into electrical energy and store it in an eco-friendly secondary battery. The timepiece has a quick-start function and starts working within a few seconds after exposure to sunlight or artificial light more than 1000lux/30watts. A special over-charge prevent function protects the battery and ensures it won’t need replacement. The NMX 1000 is available in a new resin strap featuring a solar energy design on the case back. Straps are orange, yellow or black. The timepiece is water resistant up to 200M. “We are excited to introduce this solar powered, technological sport watch. Combining dive-style function with a solar power movement, the NMX 1000 is an iconic timepiece that reflects the Nautica brand’s commitment to authenticity in design and functionality,” states Linda Calvert, VP Global Brand Management.
