Designed in cooperation with four-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong himself, he has said that the day he was diagnosed with cancer on October 2nd, 1996 (10/02) was the day he started to live. This uniquely designed and tastefully executed timepiece was individually numbered to acknowledge the significance of that October day.
After Nike limited production to only 1,002 watches of this special edition model, dedicated collectors have scrambled to own one. This ever-decreasing supply led to increased allure and value. Alongside the only retail display known to still exist, this is a truly rare and unique high quality watch from the top end of Nike Timing's line.
Nike only produced 1,002 to recognize the significance of a single day: 10/02. October 2nd was the day that 25-year-old Lance Armstrong was diagnosed with Stage III Testicular cancer. From his survival and rise to cycling fame, his ambition is an inspirational reminder that there’s life after cancer.
The high quality retail display was never included in this watch’s original public sale. In our 10+ years of collecting Nike watches, this is the only complete set ever seen. Alongside the brand new watch, this ultra-rare offering is a priceless addition for the serious collector.
Meaningful icons like a skull, an astrological sign of Cancer, a radioactive symbol, and Lance's home state of Texas appear on the crown and caseback. Built with strong quality materials like sapphire crystal, titanium and stainless steel, this watch will help you face any new challenge and look sharp while doing it.Check out everything that’s packed into this watch:

So Cool! Who knew you could find a genuine brand new Nike watch from the golden drug fueled days of cycling? This watch is the real thing and just awesome. Eric was so helpful in answering all of my questions and went way out of his way to get the watch to me fast. The time was even set to CST when it arrived. Great attention to detail. I'm going to keep checking back to see what else they run across to sell. Thank you so much.
What a fun and genuine company. The staff, specifically Eric, were absolutely on it from start to finish. I would highly recommend finding the perfect timepiece for you or your loved one from ELEVN:59. Awesome!
Continue to be impressed with their service and attention to detail even after my 3rd purchase. Can't wait to score my next watch here too. Thank You Elevn59!
Elevn:59 had a watch strap that we thought was impossible to find. Eric was keen to ensure it was exactly the strap required and, with that confirmed, created a custom product page so I could order and pay for the strap online. The attention to detail in the communications was first class and the correct strap was on its way to Malaysia in no time. Thanks again to Eric and all at Elevn:59 for the great and friendly service.
My experience was awesome. Received the watch within a couple of days. Easy to use, but having the owner's manual is a game changer for more advanced functions.
