The California-based watch and accessory brand Nixon has introduced the High Tide, a new tide watch tailored to the needs of surfers and made from upcycled ocean plastics. The High Tide, which is at the top of Nixon’s tide watch collection, follows Nixon’s redesigned H2O Yeah! recycled-ocean-plastics bags collection. The reclaimed materials are shredded, cleaned and combined with a proprietary formula to restore the original integrity of the plastic. The material is then processed in a Swiss laboratory to achieve the structural integrity for the watch cases. The launch of the new watch coincides with the introduction of 100-percent recycled and recyclable packaging for the brand’s entire future watch collection.
