The new line of watches unveiled by Nixon last October 23, 2012 at the Big Bad Wolf Restaurant in Fort Bonifacio gave an overwhelming pleasure of sensation that instantly activates the watch person in me. Watch lovers and lifestyle surf and skate fashionistas will do everything to get hold of these beauties.
Founded in 1998 in Encinitas, California, Nixon is the premium watch and accessories brand for the youth lifestyle market. Focused on making the little stuff better, Nixon began with a small line of team-designed custom built watches sold exclusively in specialty boardsport and fashion retailers. Currently distributed in over 70 countries, Nixon’s product range has grown to include select men and women’s softgoods. Leather goods, custom headphones and audio accessories. As the surf and skate fashion trend swarms the boardsports lovers and enthusiast in the Philippines, Nixon has been a brand that suits the lifestyle of free-spirited and beach bum life.
Nixon’s elite boardsport team includes pro skateboarders Tony Hawk, Paul Rodriguez, Ryan Sheckler, Danny Way and Bob Burquist as well as top surfers like Bruce Irons, Rob Machado, Lisa Andersen and John John Florence to name a few. The Nixon team was created with one goal in mind, to unify the best in the world into a team however diverse their talents, interests or style they combine their influence into one unified expression- Nixon.
Check out what Nixon has in store for us this season.
A Nixon favorite is back, welcome The Rover. A watch for the road less traveled.
The Rover – “Road less traveled” 3 hand Japanese movement with magnified date window and superlum markers on the dial with custom molded hands. Topped with a 10ATM water rating and canvas band with Italian leather-backing.
The Rover is back! Inspired by a life well lived, it’s a casual contemporary design for those who feel most athome when they’re far from home. The machine-finished stainless steel case is inspired by vintage cameras and the watch has a rotating bezel. From day to night, the glowing superlum indices keep you on time, while the canvas and leather band make you feel most in your element when you’re out in the elements.
THE CAMDEM CHRONO
Bright and Bold, the latest to the women’s Nixon collection of watches, The Camdem Chrono. The ultimate combination of confidence, style and grace.
The Camdem Chrono – “Bright and Bold” 6 hand Japanese quartz chronograph with applied indices and diamond set at 6 hour. 20ATM custom stainless steel case with faceted crown and pushers, hardened mineral crystal and stainless steel 3 link bracelet with double locking clasp.
The Camden Chrono has style in abundance. It’s a watch that is both soft and strong, effortless and convincing. An extension of our popular Camden model, The Camden Chrono features a chronograph movement with applied indices, custom molded hands and a diamond set at 6 hour. The result is a striking piece that’s equal parts bold and brilliant, that functions as much as it flirts.
Make Room for the new, the Bobbi from Nixon.
For her, not him. An unexpected combination of style and materials
The Bobbi – “All hers” 3 hand Japanese quartz movement with custom molded hands and dial ring with faceted stud indices. 5ATM water rating and leather band with custom, stainless steel adjustable stud links.
Down to earth without being earthy, the Bobbi is a watch that works in both the sleepy beach town and the heart of the city. It’s a watch that brings together the best of both worlds without compromise uniting supple leather and steel studded spikes. The end result is an attention-commanding statement fitting of the girl who will wear it. It’s attitude without ego.

The Slow Burn collection from Nixon
Feel the heat coming off this collection of team favorites. The Slow Burn is a collection inspired by the end of a long day on the mountain, relaxing in luxury. It hits the notes of a lodge fire and a deserved whisky, a thoughtful combination of colors and materials designed to evoke reflection in a refined environment, tranquility in luxury. The Slow Burn colorway is now featured on (top left, clockwise) The Lenox Beanie, The Magnacon, The Steelcat, The Synero Belt, the 51-30 Tide and The Phase Five Wallet.
Not for the faint of heart, The Plastiform Collection is for those who take inspiration in being bold. Made in tribute to the Pop Art movement, these pieces are motivated first and foremost by striking colors and textures, all in muted off tones that announce their presence fearlessly, but come with history behind them.
