Nixon collaborates with Spitfire for a summer to remember
Nixon teams up with Spitfire for a special 3 watch collection dropping early May.
Encinitas, CA – Premium watch and accessories brand, Nixon, is proud to announce their latest collaboration with the good folks at Spitfire. The collection of three watches celebrates the skate brand’s iconic Bighead logo, recognizable around the world as a piece of skateboarding’s underground heritage, while adding some Nixon-ified details of their own. As part of a continued drive to work with those who are thinking sideways, Nixon was stoked to have a chance to work with this company who continues to push limits with both its products and its team for over 30 years.
The Spitfire Story
Founded in 1987, Spitfire blasted onto the scene with one of the finest products on the market: their long-lasting, urethane wheels that hold their shape under any conditions, anywhere you skate. Since then they’ve kept the skate world on fire by continuing to make some of the highest quality wheels for nearly every type of skateboarding. Then there’s the team. Over three decades later, the Spitfire Team is still considered one of the best around. Ask most skaters and they’ll tell you: Spitfire continually picks some of the most progressive young riders out there, while still staying committed to a roster of heavy hitting originals. It’s no surprise that brand loyalty for these guys has never waivered over the years; you’d be just as likely to see a Bighead sticker popping up around town today as you would back in the 90’s, maybe more.
About the Watches
Nixon x Spitfire will be available early May in stores and online at Nixon.com. Each of the three Time Teller models pays homage to the Bighead logo in a unique way, while also featuring Nixon’s attention to detail to art, color, and materialization.
Time Teller – Black/Fireball
With a stainless steel case and 5 link band, this 10 ATM, 37 mm watch features the classic Spitfire Swirl with the Bighead logo featured prominently in red. Look closely and you’ll see this one has a Nixon tooth.
Time Teller – Black/Swirl
With a super comfortable silicone “skate strap” this is a 10 ATM, 37 mm watch. The face sucks you in with that captivating Spitfire Swirl and gets you to inspect the mini Bighead logo on the seconds hand. It’s one of the smallest details the Nixon team has ever added.
Time Teller – Gold/Fireball
A gold stainless steel 10 ATM, 37 mm watch. For an ultra-layered look, the indices are printed on the crystal and the Bighead is printed below on the dial in a rich gold stroke. This one’s a high-low mix of lux meets skate.
