The countdown for the third stop of the Nixon WTA (Winner-Takes-All) is now underway and will take place during the Billabong Pro in Mundaka, Spain. From trials to finals surfers will compete for the Longest Tube at this picturesque beach in hopes of winning a custom Nixon 51-30 watch valued at over $10,000.
"We're back at the birthplace of the Nixon WTA and we're looking forward to this years event," stated Nixon's Director of European Marketing, Henning Erlandsen. "The level of competition that goes on between all of the surfers for this watch is all in good fun, but when it comes down to it, everyone seems to be quite serious about winning it. It's anyone's game from trials to finals!"
Each WTA watch features a Swiss Made chronograph with day and custom color date, a titanium carbide coated case and band with rotating bezel and countdown timer, sapphire crystal, a custom-engraved caseback commemorating the event and custom set diamonds and rubies in the face and bezel.
