Barneys New York x Nixon 51-30
Since Nixon’s inception ten years ago, they have become a mainstay for timepieces in the active lifestyle market and boasting a series of impressive endorses. Barneys New York has teamed up with Nixon to create a collection of exciting watches for the upcoming Holiday season. Keeping in tune with ecological ideology of Barneys, Nixon made a note of it to create some pieces which incorporated hemp and recylcled stainless steel. As well, proceeds from the sale of these watches will be donated to Project Blue, an organization which funds the ocean conservation group, Surfrider.
For the design of the watches, Nixon and Barneys based their ideas around the 51-30 model, a watch which debuted over the Summer with unparalleled response. The All Black 51-30 includes a hemp wrist band limited to 150 pieces worldwide. The All Black/Rose Gold 51-30 (limited to 75 pieces worldwide) utilizes a titanium carbide coated stainless steel band coupled with a rose gold plated bezel. The crème de la crème of this collaboration features the All Black/Rose Gold Stainless Steel 51-30. Encrusted with 2 carats of full cut black diamonds, the watch includes two band options, black stainless steel and genuine stingray. A watch of this proportions was only created to the tune of 4 pieces. Aside from the different aesthetics involved with each watch, the 51-30 incorporates features such as a tide subdial, countdown timer, Swiss movement and water resistancy up to 300 meters; effectively making it a formidable time piece for any of your adventures.
These watches will be available in the middle of November exclusively at Barneys stores in New York City, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
