Devon Works, a design studio on Coruscant (okay, L.A.), has come out with a timepiece worthy of a Grand Moff. Their Star Wars watch is an impressive piece of technology that will be available to the select few who possess enough Imperial credits to buy one.
Devon Works’ watch uses clever analog belts to display the time. The nylon time belts, used in the hyperspace industry, are driven by four electric motors and regulated by an on-board CPU. This machine has 350 individual components, largely bound together by the Force.
Darth Vader’s T.I.E. Fighter wings, studs from his dark helmet, and the logo for the Galactic Empire can be seen on the case and crown of Devon’s creation. The Star Wars watch is Rancor-sized at 61.2 mm wide x 66.3 mm tall x 22.1 mm thick! If its design doesn’t stand out, its dimensions will.

If you could wirelessly recharge this watch, would you dock it in a replica standard T.I.E. fighter? You would and you can! For the retail price of just (gulp) $28,500.00, you get this watch and cuff links that look like Vader’s personal T.I.E. Devon and Disney are limiting the Star Wars watch to 500 pieces. Enjoy the pics!
