Nixon, the Southern California-based premium accessories company, has created a custom collection of limited edition watches to coincide with the Barneys celebration of 50 years of the peace sign. Nixon integrated a Happy Hippie theme into the crowd-favorite 51-30 watch.
The collection is comprised of four unique and highly customized versions all individually numbered, all 300 meter water resistant stainless steel cases with either a six-hand Japanese movement with 1/10th second subdial chrono and date or a Swiss three-hand movement with tide subdial. These coveted pieces will range between $500 and $8,800 depending on material integration.
Customizations range from hand-stitched hemp bands and hand-stamped leather bands to custom stainless-steel options. The most coveted piece includes a one-of-a-kind handcrafted sterling silver band with real turquoise stone and coral inlay. Nixon worked with famed NYC jeweler Gabriel Urist in producing six individual sterling silver creations for sale. The collection is now available exclusively in Barneys Co-Op stores.
Founded in 1997 in Encinitas, CA, Nixon is the premium accessories company for the youth lifestyle market. Focused on making the little stuff better, Nixon’s line of watches and accessories can be found globally in specialty surf, skate, snow and fashion retailers.
