The first part of the officially licensed collaborative collection includes five timepieces and two replacement straps. This ranges from premium, affordable, stylish, and limited-edition timepieces that the The Rolling Stones' fan can rock and subtly pay homage to the band.

The watches are classic and able to withstand the test of time, just like the famous Rolling Stones band. To announce the collaboration, Nixon rolled out a grand campaign. The label restored the legendary Nude Bowl arena in the desert near Palm Springs, east of Los Angeles. The label temporarily added the The Rolling Stones' Licks logo to give a shout-out to the band.

During the campaign, the watch label invited rising skateboarders like Phoenix Sinno, Ryan Carrel, Zach Miller, and Mikey Jordan. They further asked the legendary Christian Hosoi to put the new special-edition timepieces to the test. The campaign was shot by Grant Brittain, and the restoration project was documented from beginning to end. After the campaign shoot, the pool was restored to its original white hue.

The first part of the collection includes the Primacy model, which references the A1352 variety. The model was made in only 250 special pieces, of which the first four numbered pieces were sent directly to the band members and their families.

The Primacy model is a sleek and colorful watch that inculcates a woven dial featuring the rock band's Licks logo. The dial also features the watch maker's iconic Japanese Automatic movement. The official site introduces the product,

"Made for the tastefully distinguished professional with an eye for detail, the Rolling Stones Primacy weaves together rock and roll with artsy yet elevated style. A woven dial on the Primacy features the Rolling Stones Tongue in intricate detail, bringing a crafty vintage look into contemporary ingenuity and design cues."

The watch features gold hands, which elevates the model's look and is punctuated by a bluesy date window. Lastly, a stainless steel band firmly secured the model's face and body. The watch can be availed on the official e-commerce site for a retail price of $1600.

The third and fourth offering in the collection is the Time Teller watch, which comes in two colorways. This watch is an all-time best seller of the brand and has received two makeovers. The first makeover is an all-gold, while the second is an all-red.
