Recap the Rad: Looking Back at Nixon in 2022
Nixon got busy in 2022. From new products and collabs to new team members and charitable partnerships, here are the highlights from our past year.
New Nixon Watches in 2022
Here are the new Nixon watches that joined the family in 2022.
Sentry Solar Stainless Steel and Leather
Sentry is one of our most popular models. And in 2022 we updated it with a solar-powered movement. The Sentry Solar is available in both leather and stainless steel, with a variety of color combinations for each material.
The Optimist is another new watch in 2022 that expanded our line of Nixon solar watches. The Optimist is a women’s watch with a design inspired by modern jewelry.
Thalia kicked the year off to a proper start by adding a subtle stunner to our women’s watch line. Gaining quick notoriety, it even made an appearance in our overdriven rock-and-roll collection. More on that below.
The most recent watch to hit our line is the Confidante. Its design pays homage to “secret watches,” a jewelry choice of the past that allowed for time to be checked with discretion (it was considered impolite to check time in social settings).
Time Teller OPP
The Sentry wasn’t the only classic Nixon watch that received a remake in 2022. The Time Teller OPP takes one of our most popular watches of all time and rebuilds it with “Other People’s Plastic.”
Nixon 2022 Collaborations
This year, we had two huge collaborations we’re still buzzed on.
The Rolling Stones Collab
We are hyped to have collaborated with such heavy pioneers in rock and roll as The Rolling Stones. Doing so led to some of our best designs to date.
Independent Trucks is a staple in skateboarding. Earlier this year we collaborated on a line of watches that were Custom-Built to Grind.
Nixon at 2022 Events
We also ramped up our presence at events across the globe. Here’s a look at a few of them.
Nixon came through with trophy watches for three SLUSH events, including the first ever Wallbangerz, the World Quarterpipe Championships and the Game of Big SNOW.
Nixon team athlete Mikkel Bang held his Bang Slalom event in Norway this year. Nixon came through with specially engraved trophy watches featuring local Norwegian artistry.
Nixon hooked up Dew Tour athletes with Nixon trophy watches featuring event-specific caseback engravings.
Internal Nixon Updates for 2022
Here are a couple other notable updates from Nixon in 2022.
New Team Riders
We were stoked to extend our team through the Nixon voting process this year. Check out the team interviews on our blog page.
This year saw new partnerships with SeaTrees, an arm of the non-profit organization Sustainable Surf. In April, we partnered to plant mangrove trees in Indonesia. For Giving Tuesday this past November, we partnered with SeaTrees again, along with The Bay Foundation, to restore kelp off the California coast. Both mangrove forests and kelp forests play an important role in sustaining coastal ecosystems and sequestering carbon.
