Nixon x Steven Harrington
Nixon has partnered with contemporary, psychedelic-pop artist, Steven Harrington to launch a limited edition, three-piece watch collection. Also hailing from California, Steven puts his unique touch to iconic Nixon silhouettes The Time Teller and The Sentry. The collaborative capsule celebrates California heritage and carries Steven’s signature style that feels like a throwback to beach living and surf culture of yesteryear. The collection injects a fresh dose of creativity into Nixon’s summer offering.
The only thing serious about Steven's artwork is his dedication to keeping it fun. And colorful. And kinda wacky. The Los Angeles native’s tireless output has pushed him to the forefront of the California psych-art scene, and brought his warped, kaleidoscopic creations to eyes all over the world, including previous colette collaborations. His style blends bold colors with geometric shapes and patterns, offering up anthropomorphic trees, eyeballs on everything, and strange cartoonish creatures of all sorts. Embracing a multimedia approach, Steven’s portfolio includes large-scale installations made of plaster and stone, handscreened prints, limited-edition books, skateboards, sculptures and now watches.
Combining sharp product design with a casual, Southern California-inspired vibe, the Nixon x Steven Harrington capsule is bold, cartoonish and somewhat trippy. The Sentry Leather SH in Olive-Gold and The Time Teller SH in Olive-Gold come with engraved, olive green leather bands and sleek golden cases. The Time Teller in All Gold features an all-over metallic finish and carries Steven’s signature palm tree on the dial. All watches are equipped with a 3-hand Miyota quartz movement and a solid stainless steel case with a 100-meter (10 ATM) water resistant rating. The Sentry Leather SH also features an added date and day window on the dial.
