I noticed this a few weeks ago online and forgot to post it…these will be like gold dust…
Nixon has released another¬†LTD¬†Collection which this year is a group of limited edition 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.
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 Nixon‚Äôs 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 athlete‚Äôs 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 year‚Äôs 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
