Material: Stainless steel and leather
Brand: Nixon Watches
When you can’t find the perfect watch, make it yourself: that’s the conclusion Nixon founders Chad DiNenna and Andy Laats came to when they launched their cutting-edge accessories label in 1998. Based in Southern California, Nixon has adopted an aesthetic that is equal parts West Coast and East, traditional and hard-edged, hipster and sporty. With brand reps that include singer Santigold, professional skateboarder Tony Hawk and surfer Mark Cunningham, Nixon watches — rendered in high-gloss, boldly fluorescent rubber — offer both street cred and sophistication. In addition to timepieces, the label also designs headphones, bags and wallets, men’s and women’s clothing and outerwear, and sleek tech cases.
