Sans any functional grille and as big and bold as a concept car can be, the Infiniti QX Inspiration is a physical foreshadowing of the luxury brand’s electrified future. The QX Inspiration follows in the footsteps of the radical Q Inspiration sedan that bowed last year. The crosssover EV, however, removes any semblance of a grille in favor of near-solid front end that’s accented by an illuminated logo and brand lettering. Though details on the concept are sparse, the unabashed aesthetic is dramatic with ultra-thin headlights, pronounced body creases, and blackened pillars for a “floating roof” look. The interior will have Japanese styling elements and more generous room than QXs of old thanks to the flat floor an EV affords. Most importantly, though, is what the QX represents, an unmitigated electrified and hybridized future by 2021. See the QX Inspiration in the flesh at the upcoming Detroit Auto Show.

As much as we love watches with dozens of complications and functions, there’s something to be said for a simple and understated design. The Nixon Patrol watch is a modern interpretation of classic designs that has everything you need and nothing you don’t. Made with a no-nonsense 42mm stainless case, a rock-solid Miyota quartz movement and a stainless 3-link bracelet, it’s as clean and slim as it is durable and attractive. Add in the bold indices on the face to complete the sleek and stylish look. This is the watch for the makers and doers.
