NIXON CAPTAIN FIN BASE TIDE
We shanghaied fin and accessories brand Captain Fin Co. to infuse their “delinquent genius” vibe into two of our favorite watches, the Base Tide and the Porter Leather. To celebrate the limited edition collab, we caught up with Captain Fin Founder, Pro Surfer Mitch Abshere to grab coffee, check the surf, and hear how the idea for Captain Fin came about. Drop the anchor and hang in this far-out port a while.
