I really love pocket watches, but I’ve always assumed it was just a strange fetish. I’m the proud owner of my grandfather’s 19th century pocket watch, and although I’ve wanted to rock it out at the proper party I just couldn’t bring myself to leave the house with it — knowing my luck it would end up falling into a urinal, accompanied to the soundtrack of me shrieking like a Twilight-heated schoolgirl in clear view of Robert Pattinson. So I’ve obstained. Now Nixon has released a new line of Highball pocket watches — complete with stainless steel cases, leather inlays, hardened mineral crystal windows on lid and caseback and stainless steel chains. Not quite as nice as El Gran Jefe’s epic timepiece, but nice enough to aptly complete your look. Pick them up for $300-$400.
