Metallica unveiled a new range of Nixon watches, with each new model representing one of their classic albums.
The metal band has teamed up with the watchmaker for a new series of timepieces celebrating its back catalog.
Albums like ‘Kill ‘Em All’, ‘Ride The Lightning’, ‘Master Of Puppets’, ‘…And Justice For All’ and ‘The Black Album’, plus the latest album ‘Hardwired…To Self Destruct’ are featured in the group’s second Nixon watch collection.
Each model has an image on their face that represents one of these aforementioned albums. They’re currently retailing for $150-$500 (£117-£389), while a limited-edition ‘Sanitarium’ watch is also available. This one sells for $750 (£583).
The watches will be released on November 5, but fans can pre-order through Metallica’s official website. The group also promised that more items from their collaboration with Nixon will be released next year.
Meanwhile, earlier this year, guitarist Kirk Hammett said the band has no regrets over its legal battle with Napster, in which it sued the file-sharing service for copyright infringement in 2000.
“The whole Napster thing – it did us no favors,” he said during an appearance on Swedish television. “But you know what? We’re always right about that — we’re always right about Napster, no matter who says, ‘Metallica was wrong’. All you have to do is look at the state of the music industry, and that sort of explains the whole situation here.
