Ultra cool sports, skate and surf watch brand Nixon is certainly proving a sure favourite amongst celebrities. There is one cult show in particular where the cool and quirky watches seem to be popping up left right and centre. The characters in American action drama Heroes can’t seem to get enough of the Nixon watches – Hiro’s watch in one of the earlier episodes is a Nixon watch and following that, Peter Petrelli’s wrist is adorned with another sleek and sharp Nixon watch - The Player.
Nixon also released a limited collection of one-of-a-kind watches made from celebrity leather jackets and guitar straps with 100% of the proceeds going to MAP (Musicians Assistance Program). Milo Ventimiglia who plays Peter Petrelli in Heroes is one of the celebrities who donated personal items including the leather jacket he wore playing Jess on ‘Gilmore Girls’.
Milo Ventimiglia has been a fan of Nixon watches for many years and has been supporting the brand since the days when he worked in a skate-shop. He loves the sporty yet edgy vibe of the timepieces and was therefore keen to include them as part of his character on the show Heroes.
Nixon really does have a fantastically diverse range of watches – from funky and futuristic to functional and classic. The watches are consistently updated so there are always new designs to look out for. The hot new ones include The Sultan, The Banks Leather and The R1G1. Telling time has never been so attractive and that is probably why the range is so popular amongst the also attractive Heroes cast!
