Nixon x Barneys 25th Anniversary Watch — The Duke Of Few Hazzards
When other companies were still fussing over how to make gold and silver watches more dainty and princess-like, accessories brand Nixon realized that women, too, like to funk up their wrists. Over the past decade, they've offered the ladies some pieces that well worth our time: from "The Playa," a candy-colored, streetwise number featuring a silicon strap molded to resemble the links of a metal strap, to "The Chalet", a retro-flavored, hefty stainless steel bracelet watch with wood or enamel inlays along each rectangular-shaped watch link. Even the watch names made us feel cool, regardless of whether we preferred "The Debutant" or "The Cougar." And now, they've brought the sexy back to a classic style, "The Duke."
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Barneys CO-OP, Nixon called upon "The Duke," pulling the watch style out of retirement for one final tournament. The watch boasts a sharp but rugged feel thanks to its Horween leather strap, which features slim stainless steel bars with rounded edges along its length. The rectangular-shaped, matte black face, meanwhile, features a raised stainless steel bezel with rounded corners, as well as a diamond hour marker and a custom-engraved caseback.
Available in brown or black leather, the Nixon x Barneys "Duke" is a Barneys CO-OP exclusive. Only a limited number of pieces are available, all worthy of their regal titles.
Nixon "The Duke" watch, $250. Available at Barneys.com and Barneys CO-OP retail locations.
