There’s nothing we like more here at EP than especially distinctive timepieces and there’s no doubting that the Nooka Zon watch succeeds in this respect where other watches that try so hard to distinguish themselves, so often merely either come across as overly complex (merely for the sake of it) or abundantly tacky. The Nookia Zon, it has to be said, cannot be accused of being either.
Sporting simple, somewhat minimalist appeal that beautifully fuses unashamedly modern design with more than a doff of the cap to a certain, and particularly eye-catching retro appeal, the Nooka Zon is, if you like, brings together the novel design ideals of TokyoFlash paired with a far more mature design sensibility. That’s said, this is a Nooka and Nooka have been producing watches that stray from the norm for some considerable time so to compare them to any other watchmaker is, perhaps, all too simplistic.
Featuring a 35x45x10mm display formed of ‘pixels’ or ‘blocks’ that serve to display the time, the Nooka Zon also comes with world time settings (for those of you who find themselves flitting between time zones) and is available in either black, silver or white for around $650.
