It’s not often you can buy a watch that eases your guilty conscience, but Nixon watches have enabled you to do just that. The high adrenaline, high jinxes, adventure lifestyle brand has teamed up with the charity ‘Boarding for Breast Cancer’ (B4BC) to raise awareness for the killer disease and boost the charity’s piggy bank. Nixon has pledged to donate a portion of the proceeds of sales of their watch, The Vega (in pink), towards fighting breast cancer.
The pink Vega Nixon watch is like bubblegum for your wrist. Designed in the sugariest of pinks, it is the perfect statement watch that doesn’t take itself too seriously and allows you to support an extremely worthwhile cause just by wearing it. The watch itself has a bracelet strap made from polycarbonate and layered with hardened mineral crystal, and the rectangular dial sits neatly on top boasting 3-hand Japanese quartz movement and the Nixon logo in the bottom right corner in silver. If ever there was a watch that combined girlish sweetness with fierce durability and a conscience, this is it!
Nixon is a brand known as much for their enduring, fashionable wristwear, as their involvement in extreme sports such as snowboarding and surfing, so their partnership with ‘Boarding for Breast Cancer’ is a natural fit. The aim of B4BC is to raise awareness for breast cancer and the importance of early detection, as well as encouraging a fit and healthy lifestyle. With Nixon watches pledging an amount of sales from their pink Vega watch to the charity, we wish the union every success and would encourage everyone to purchase the candy-coloured charitable accessory!

Big, bold and not for the faint hearted, Nixon Watches scream don’t mess with me! Watches this big and fat are only found on the most confident of men and like a piece of well designed ammunition on the wrist, a Nixon watch is programmed to attract admiring glances..
Nixon is represented by a host of big names, most notably in extreme sports and music. With Nixon teams established in the skating, surfing and snowboarding arenas, as well as brand representation within the music industry (the UK’s ‘Little Boots’, Mos Def and Santigold), the label has very much positioned itself at the intersection of urban cool.
Owning a Nixon watch will most definitely earn you style points among friends (and enemies). With all the mod cons, functionality and durability to boot, these watches are not only amazing to look at, but hard wearing and practical. Of course all this comes at a price, but can you put a price on style?! The Nixon wristwear collection ranges from a whopping £1,100 to a very reasonable £50. At the top end of the scale is the ‘The Ceramic Player’, a gloriously chunky, yet slick, white ceramic number with scratch resistant sapphire crystal, 3 hand Swiss movement and a face bedecked with jewels. We could see this little (big) beauty fit very comfortably on Mr T’s wrist in the new A-Team remake! At the very bottom is a completely contrasting wristwatch, with a no-fuss polyurethane strap available in a multitude of bright colours. Named ‘The Time Teller’, this Nixon watch is great for the 2010 summer colourful watch trend and cheap as chips too!
We cannot stress enough how great these Nixon watches are. Surely when your watch enters the room before you do, you know you’re onto something good!
