The story of Nixon watches begins in Encinitas, California in 1997, where founders Andy Laats and Chad Dinenna launched a line of timepieces for people who surf, skate, board, and actively engage in the outdoor world. Today, Nixon watches are still inspired by modern, youthful culture, but the catalog has expanded to include a wide variety of styles beyond skate and surf. Their styles include simple monochromatic watches with silicone straps, DJ-inspired digital and LED displays, simple analog watches that draw on horological history, and sleek bracelet watches for a night out in the city. Whatever form they take, Nixon watches are some of the most coveted fashion watches in the market.
