A Nixon vai lançar uma edição limitada de relógios confeccionados com artigos de cabedal doados por algumas das mais importantes figuras do rock e as receitas serão a favor do MusiCares MAP Fund®
A Nixon Rock LTD Collection é composta por exemplares únicos, com braceletes feitas a partir de blusões, calças, botas ou correias de guitarra, e o produto da venda reverte para esta organização, que se dedica a programas de desintoxicação na comunidade musical.
Peças de cabedal usadas por Ozzy Osbourne, Keith Richards, Pete Townshend, Tom Waits, Eddie Van Halen, Steven Tyler e Ringo Starr, são empregues nestes relógios únicos.
A lista fornecida pela Nixon:
Ozzy Osbourne – 51-30 Chrono (leather jacket)
Keith Richards – Sentry Chrono (leather jacket)
Pete Townshend – Sentry Chrono (guitar strap)
Tom Waits – Sentry Chrono (one leather boot)
Eddie Van Halen - Sentry Chrono Leather (guitar strap)
Steven Tyler - Sentry Chrono Leather (leather jacket)
Ringo Starr – Time Teller (leather swatches from personal collection)
The donated leather goods come straight from the artist's closet, giving the watchbands a worn, lived-in feel. Each watch will be individually, hand-numbered to denote the highly limited nature and will feature etched custom caseback with the name of the artist and a certificate of authenticity from Nixon and MusiCares®. Quantities are extremely limited and only available until they are gone. Previous Rock Ltd Collections have included donated leather from the likes of Anthony Kiedis and Flea, Dave Navarro, Chris Cornell, Scott Weiland, Stephen Perkins, and Jeff Buckley, to name a few.
“I believe so strongly in the assistance MusiCares MAP Fund provides to folks who are struggling with addiction recovery that I now walk around with one boot on, having donated my other boot to this Rock LTD Collection. I will continue to wear just one boot until everyone is clean and sober just like Me.” – Tom Waits.
The first delivery of this exclusive Rock LTD watch collection will be available mid-November in selected retailers and Nixon stores globally including Nixon’s new Seven Dials retail location on Neal Street, London (opening end November, 2015).
