Abysse has partnered with California-founded Nixon on a capsule collection of four watches, inspired by the “eternal draw of the ocean,” Abysse shared.
The swimwear brand’s founder, Hanalei Reponty-Gudauskas, had this to say about the collection, “We set out to design four watches that reflected Abysse’s DNA. A lot of my inspirations came from old diving watches, men’s watches and vintage aesthetics. The tomboy at heart in me is always drawn to men’s fashion. I have always loved big watches on women, and I wanted to give them a feminine touch that would transcend time.”
Reponty continued, “All of our watches are made to be worn in the ocean. You can dive, swim, surf in them, explore the world… as they are made for durability in the elements. The little yellow touches are an ode to the old diving codes & suits that I absolutely adore, & it felt very true to coordinate our color ways with our current Abysse collection. Its androgen twist is something else I love. Gender should not define what you wear.”
