Time Marches On With Line Of Nixon Watches

Aug 27, 2018

We’re stoked to announce our newest collaboration as the Nixon x Metallica hardcore collection is now available for pre-order at Metallica.com and the European Store, in stores, and online at Nixon.com on November 5th of this year.

Nixon, who began in the '90s in Southern California with the goal of “making stuff a little better” with a line of custom-built watches, have grown to become one of the premiere lifestyle watch companies, working with some of the greatest action sports athletes in history, including Tony Hawk, John John Florence, Leila Hurst and scores of others; as well as with amazing franchises like Star Wars & Disney. They are the perfect partner for us... independent and unique, with a focus on creativity and quality, and we’ve been looking forward to working with them again since our first experience back in 2010 when we teamed up for a series of limited edition rocker watches using old guitar straps and leather jackets from various ‘Tallica members to create watch bands (with proceeds going to the Musicians Assistance Program).

The Metallica collection includes eight hard rocking models, plus one special limited edition with all the details listed below.

Enjoy the line of Metalli-watches! This is just the beginning, as we have more ideas with our partners at Nixon for 2019!
