If the usual array of premium automotive branded timepieces presented here on Autoblog isn't exactly your taste, you may want to check out the latest from Nixon. The fresh skater-culture brand has teamed up with the organizers of the Gumball 3000 to roll out a special set of watches and headphones geared towards participants and fans alike.

The Nixon x Gumball watch starts off with the company's iconic Rubber Player wristwatch, decked out in low-key black silicon (on both the case and strap), accented by gold touches on the caseback, crown and hands. A limited number will be made available to the public at $200, while a more exclusive edition of Nixon's 51-30 – encased in matte black steel with similar gold touches – will be furnished to rally participants, which this year include Nixon spokespersons Tony Hawk and Mike Escamilla.

To go with the watches, Nixon has also created special editions of its "e Whip" and "e Wire" headphones, selling for $60 and $75 respectively. The items will be available at Nixon retailers around the world, including those along the rally's route through London, Amsterdam, Boston, Montreal, Toronto and New York. The perfect thing to go with those special Puma kicks you got last year. Details in the press release after the jump.

      What a goofy looking watch.

      Great watch, great rally, enough said. Gumball 3000 we salute you!

      Future Gumball 3000 slogan: "I rolled my 599 GTB in the Gumball 3000 and all I got was this lousy watch."

      That is one revolting watch!

      Much like the drivers that participate in those Gumball rallies, come to think of it...

        Amen. I've seen nicer watches in those 25-cent toy dispensers outside grocery stores.
