Watchmaking is slowly and surely making a comeback in California and one of the most notable microbrands in the state is LA's Nodus. The company has just unveiled a new flagship timepiece called the Avalon II, which builds on a popular model that was introduced back in 2018. The Avalon II features a fully CNC'd 41.5mm cushion case that features a polished ceramic insert and frames a waffle-pattern tapisserie dial. The watch also features a water resistance rating of 300M, T-C1 X1 grade SuperLuminova lume, and a NodeX extension clasp module that was developed entirely in-house. Powering the watch is a Miyota 9015 automatic movement, which has a power reserve of 42 hours.
