Nodus has quickly made a name for itself in the year-plus the brand has been around. Already on their third release, the LA-based duo behind Nodus has focused on watches that are clearly driven by a genuine enthusiast’s passion. Clever, creative, and affordable, Nodus watches feature the kinds of details—from sapphire bezels to subtle vintage influences—that keep value in mind and make watch-nerds happy.
Nodus’ third release is the Contrail, a duo of designs (one with a bezel, one without) available in a variety of dial colors. The Contrail is meant to be a versatile sport watch for travel. It’s a watch that can take a beating thanks to the sapphire crystal, bezel, and viton gaskets; take a swim with thanks to the 200 meters of water resistance; and take a meeting with thanks to its H-link bracelet, classic proportions, and handsome style. The bezel version is simply labeled the Contrail, while the slightly more compact, bezel-free variant is called the Contrail 39.
