The story begins in the south part of France in the year of 2010. Niclas Lij rented a car and drove along the coast line of the riviera. Double espresso in Nice, walking along the cliff side at Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, cruising in Monaco, cocktails in Cannes and surfing in Biarritz. After 3 weeks traveling the journey began to reach an end. Niclas spent some time at the beach, thinking about life, values and goals. He had a passion for design and carried his sketch book. He started to draw a watch, symbolic to capture the beautiful time in France kept in a time capsule.
Back in Sweden, Stockholm, Niclas continue his life as usual. It wasn't until several years later he found the sketch book with the drawing of a watch. Thinking back to the time in France and looking at the drawing he decided to go for it. He wanted to follow his passion and and create a brand. All he needed now was a brand name. He thought back to that moment at the beach in Nice. Nice... Niclas... Nick... His uncle always called him Nick. He needed more. Beach... Drawing... The drawing was made at the beach, in a beach cabana. Cabana... Nick... Nick Cabana.
