Nixon enlisted the help of badass special forces operatives to design their latest digital wristwatch. 

The ultra-rugged Regulus was crafted in collaboration with Navy SEAL and Silver Star recipient Mitchell Hall to create a military-grade timepiece capable taking an absolute beating in the field. 

"The goal with Regulus was to simplify that and give the user only what they need," Hall said. "We took prototypes to SEAL teams and gave them hot-off-the-shelf watches and said, 'Beat them up. Tell us what's good and what's bad about it.'" 

The resulting design has simple, purpose-built features that have both civilian and combat applications. The dual chronograph function displays two stopwatches simultaneously—perfect for tracking multiple targets or timing different legs a circuit training workout. 

An adjustable LED light and a silent mode also allow users go dark whenever necessary, while its tough construction includes a shock-absorbing poly urethane jacket, a durable stainless steel bezel and a case that's water resistant up to 100 meters.
