WatchesBrand History

Associates Andy Laats and Chad DiNenna in Encinitas, California founded Nixon watches in 1997. The brand is specifically geared towards the younger market, manufacturing custom-made watches that exemplify various lifestyles and sports incliding skateboarding, surfing, etc.By the year 2000, Nixon watches expanded into softgoods and accessories with shops opening in over 25 countries.

Design

The brand filled the void for the lack of surfing-inspired watches. Its co-founder, Chad DiNenna worked with Andy Laats, a mechanical engineer with a bachelor’s degree from Cornell University and started Nixon watches. They raised a million bucks and created Nixon watches from the ground up. The first collection of Nixon watches were sold at 200 retailers and were such a huge hit, they already carry more than 90 watch designs, hired more than 60 employees and reached sales growth of about 55% annually.

Nixon for Billabong

It was in January 2006 when Billabong International acquired Nixon watches for a cool $54.6 million. This recent development opened more doors to the Nixon brand and it was projected to contribute around 5%-6% between 2006- 2007 to the Billabong brand.
