No joke, Nixon came up with a really cool idea to help support The Tony Hawk Foundation with a portion of the proceeds from the sale of a limited series of watches made entirely of skateboards and snowboards from some of the sports best athletes including: Tony Hawk, Danny Way, Danny Davis, Romain DeMarchi and others. Take a look right here
Limited to 500 pieces worldwide, these one-of-a-kind, handcrafted watches are created through a labor intensive process which includes planing the boards top sheets down to .4mm. The plies, which include the boards graphics, are then individually die-cut and inlaid by hand into Nixonâ€™s Rotolog and Chalet links. Case and link plating options include black, gunmetal, gold, antique silver, antique brass and blue metallic finishes and are topped off with custom engraved casebacks which bear the LTD logo, the athleteâ€™s name, number in edition and the collection year.
Due to the nature of the process, each piece is unique, with no two watches alike. Distribution is limited to select skate and snowboard specialty shops and all watches will be available November 15, retailing between $399 and $499 USD.
This yearâ€™s collection was created from the board graphics of:
SKATE: Tony Hawk, Ryan Sheckler, Danny Way, Paul Rodriguez, Bob Burnquist, Colin McKay, JB Gillet
SNOW: Danny Davis, Todd Richards, Romain DeMarchi, Gigi Ruf, Jeremy Jones, JP Solberg
