Nixon x Independent: Custom-Built to Grind
When it's Time-to-Grind, wear the best.
Bringing together two icons with heritages of building the best, Nixon collides with Independent Trucks to create a collection of timepieces that are custom-built to grind.
A cornerstone of skateboarding, Independent is known for creating trucks that thrive in the streets and in pools. They’ve been supplying skateboarding’s gnarliest and most pioneering riders with the best since the late ’70s. The quality and design of Indy trucks helped unlock new possibilities in the early pool contest days, and they continue to do so today on all terrains.
Nixon has always been grounded in skateboarding. We launched our first watches exclusively in core shops. Over the years we have supported the best on boards and together have team-designed and custom-built the best watches for our community. Collaboration is core to our DNA.
Aiming to design a collection of watches that spoke to the core of skateboarding and that could withstand any skateboard mission, Nixon joined forces with Indy. The vision was then made manifest.
The collection includes the Independent Time Teller, Independent Staple, and Independent 51-30 Chrono. The Independent Time Teller embodies a minimalist design with Independent logos on the dial in dual finishes. The Independent Staple includes a thin digital profile, comfortable camouflage strap, and the “Ride the Best” mantra. The Independent 51-30 Chono features a Time-to-Grind subdial and a hardware shaped hand and crown.
Meeting up with local Independent riders, the Nixon x Independent watches were tested through and through. Not only are the designs easy on the eyes, but their comfortable feel allows them to perform well no matter how serious the session. They’re front-blunt, front-air and invert ready.
