California-based Nixon announced back on May 4th (also known unofficially as Star Wars Day) that it would offer a line of Star Wars Nixon watches later this year. With Comic-Con International in full swing in San Diego, the company this week unveiled the first two timepieces in the collection. The STAR WARS | Nixon Ranger in Stormtrooper White and Imperial Pilot Black are now available but only in limited quantities.
Translated into a collection of thoughtfully designed watches and accessories, the STAR WARS | Nixon Collection looks to honor the legacy and the innovative ideas of forward-thinking, game-changing individuals who brought it to life. The watches and accessories in this collection showcase the unprecedented storytelling that STAR WARS represents in original ways and are unlike anything you’ve seen before.
The Nixon Ranger Imperial Pilot Black and Stormtrooper White feature an Imperial marker at the 12 o’clock mark, custom hour and minute hands inspired by the helmet ventilation systems and custom bezel geometry inspired by the uniform’s utility belt.
