NIXON WELCOMES THE ROCK LTD COLLECTION, AN EXCLUSIVE WATCH COLLECTION BENEFITING MUSICARES MAP FUNDÂ®
Nixon is proud to announce the release of the Rock LTD Collection, a limited edition of custom one-of-a-kind timepieces featuring watch straps created with donated leather jackets, pants and guitar straps from some of musicâs best and brightest. Proceeds from the sale of these unique timepieces will benefit the MusiCares MAP FundÂ®, a charity that provides members of the music community access to addiction recovery treatment.
Available for Holiday 2015, the Rock LTD collection will take advantage of leathers worn by the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, Keith Richards, Pete Townshend, Tom Waits, Eddie Van Halen, Steven Tyler, and Ringo Starr and transform them into extremely rare, highly collectible, one-of-a-kind timepieces.
Ozzy Osbourne â 51-30 Chrono (leather jacket)
Keith Richards â Sentry Chrono (leather jacket)
Pete Townshend â Sentry Chrono (guitar strap)
Tom Waits â Sentry Chrono (one leather boot)
Eddie Van Halen - Sentry Chrono Leather (guitar strap)
Steven Tyler - Sentry Chrono Leather (leather jacket)
Ringo Starr â 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 MusiCaresÂ®. 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.
âI 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.â â Tom Waits
