Nixon has been the premium lifestyle accessory brand of choice for independents, creatives, and free-thinkers the world over. What co-founders Chad DiNenna and Andy Laats started in Encinitas, California as a boutique line of watches exclusively sold at board sports and fashion retailers is now a full range of watches, bags, leather goods, and accessories. Sold in over 90 countries, we've built a global following of people living unbound lives and bringing our products along for the ride.

Our mantra from the beginning was to use the talent of our team to bring our vision to life. We work with our diverse group of athletes, musicians, makers, artists, and activists whose ranks include John John Florence, Leila Hurst, and Zion Wright, to name a few.

This select group helps us to identify new functions and to create objects that radiate style. Whether it comes in the form of making the perfect tide watch, snowboard-ready backpack, or just breaking the mold of traditional design, our team is the secret sauce that brings ideas to a different level.

Iconic Products

Throughout Nixon's history, there have been certain designs that have become icons in their own right. The retro-futuristic luxury of The Player, the universal-appealing minimalism of the Time Teller, the rugged, high performance of the Regulus created in collaboration with the agents of the U.S. Special Operations corps, the classic design of the Sentry, or the unmistakable statement of the 51-30, all stand out as designs that set the style bar of the era. Then there are the innovative pieces like the cheeky, vocalized fun of the Dork and Dork Too, and the influential design experimentation of the Newton that push the envelope of both form and function.
