Nixon dropped a limited-edition watch collection inspired by iconic rapper star Tupac Shakur. The Nixon x 2Pac collection includes five custom-designed gold, black and silver watches priced from $175 to $600.


The collection, released on Tuesday (Oct. 3) via Nixon.com, draws inspiration from the late rap icon’s “legacy and timeless style,” according to a press release. The designs pay homage to Shakur’s aesthetic and poetry with unique design elements such as roses and gold bezels and special iconography.

Nixon’s watch collection coincides with the 50th anniversary of hip-hop, and the 27th anniversary of Shakur’s death in September 1996.

In the year prior to his death, Shakur’s style gradually shifted from oversized shirts, hockey jerseys and jeans to dress shirts, vests and three-piece suits accessorized with mounds of diamond and gold jewelry. From chains to watches and rings, the late rapper appreciated expensive jewelry pieces, and didn’t mind stacking them up.

Some items from Shakur’s jewelry collection have since been auctioned off including a gold, ruby and diamond crown ring that sold for $1 million in July and a diamond pendant that sold for $125,000 in 2016.
