Ever wanted to wear R2-D2, Darth Vader, Boba Fett or a Stomrtrooper around your wrist? This new series of Star Wars designer watches gives you that chance.
People typically express their attraction towards a film or a TV series by wearing clothes with the main characters. Websites that sell limited edition geeky t-shirts have gotten very popular recently. However, fashion accessories such as wristwatches are also gaining ground, despite the fact that some people consider that the proliferation of smartphones and other such mobile devices renders conventional timepieces obsolete. Themed wristwatches featuring key characters from the Star Wars space saga are meant to show that whoever is wearing them is no amateur who heard about Anakin Skywalker just yesterday.
The first Star Wars designer watch in the series features R2-D2, the whistling droid we are looking for whenever we hear about the saga. The clean white design with a blue trim may look a bit childish, and even plasticky, that the quality of the materials proves us wrong.
In case you want a watch to swim with, the timepieces from this series are right up your alley, as they are water resistant at 5 ATM or up to 50 meters. The Imperial Stormtrooper watch actually features a helmet inside the Imperial logo.
The most famous bounty hunter from Star Wars, Boba Fett, also has his own wristwatch. The particularities of this one include a spinning cage dial and a glossy chrome case.
A series of Star Wars designer watches would not have been complete without the one featuring the main character of the saga: Anakin Skywalker, aka Big Daddy or Sith Lord Darth Vader. His helmet is the main design element here, and the glossy black design matches the theme perfectly. I guess Luke’s father would’ve been proud of wearing such a timepiece around his wrist, especially considering that it has a precise Japanese movement.
The padded presentation box that each of these Star Wars watches comes in also includes a Collectors Certificate whose number matches the serial number of the watch, as well as a Guarantee & Instruction Booklet. The manufacturer guarantees these wristwatches for 36 months from date of purchase.
Anyone willing to buy a Star Wars wristwatch should head to Stupid.com, ThinkGeek.com or EntertainmentEarth.com, where these are on sale for $200. Considering that the same amount of money can get you a smartwatch, it’s up to you if they are worth it or not.
