Nixon has announced a limited collab with the legendary artist, writer, and cultural tastemaker C.R. Stecyk III. The promo for the collection, "Urban Maneuvers," includes voiceovers from respected figures in skateboarding touting Stecyk’s influence. To highlight this awesome occasion, Nixon posted a lengthy tribute to the man on their blog:
C.R. Stecyk III exists in the shadows, and even when he does slide into the sunlight, it rarely adds clarity. A pioneer of the Dogtown skate ethos, Stecyk has helped shape modern skateboarding in more ways than imaginable: through videos, writing, art installations, and helping launch Thrasher magazine, among others. A widely-acknowledged street art progenitor, Stecyk’s contributions to the counterculture are so engrained in society that the Smithsonian permanently houses some of his work. He has been asked to glyph on the outside of MOMA, later to have hand painted surfboards presented there. He also served up Olympic boards at the Obama White House. And then there’s that Rat & Crossbones glyph Stecyk territorially sprayed under a decaying bridge in Venice, which has arguably become one of the most infamous symbols in skateboarding precisely because, like Stecyk, it originated in the shadows.
Nixon and Stecyk are continual fans of one another’s brands. Now, they’ve collaborated to develop a capsule consisting of a Limited Edition watch and tactical camera bag, which was truly inspired by the everyday needs and aesthetics of both brands.
THE C.R. STECYK III LIMITED EDITION DESCENDER: This tactical stainless steel timepiece is water-resistant to 30ATM and features a Cerakote graffiti splattered case and custom caseback. It is standard issue for midnight marauders armed with a skateboard or aerosol can. With only 100 made worldwide each watch includes (2) nylon Nato bands in a specially considered Genuine Pelican Case, ready for any adventure. But, when they are gone, they are gone.
LOGIC OPS CAMERA BAG: The C.R. Stecyk III Limited Edition Logic Ops Camera Bag accommodates a fully-kitted loadout for any sharpshooter with an SLR. A stealthy exterior is accented with Nixon and Stecyk logos, MOLLE webbing details, and tripod straps. Inside you’ll find a multi-compartment storage system, so your gear is always locked in when loaded. Just like the watch only 100 camera bags were made globally.
