Devon Star Wars watch brings galactic time-keeping to your wrist
Anticipation for the upcoming “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” movie is rising high and we have already seen cool toy including a drone and quadcopter being released a week back at “Force Friday” live streaming event. It doesn’t come as a surprise that even more gadgets/merchandize are being revealed that Stat Wars fans will love like anything. Devon Works was approached by Disney and Lucasfilm to make a Star Wars watch that conveyed the spirit of galactic battles. Hence came into existence the Star Wars watch which took almost 2 years to conceptualize and bring to the real world with assistance from U.S. aerospace industry experts.
Wireless charging watch with unique time display which reflects the spirit of Star Wars
On the outside, this Star Wars timepiece looks majorly inspired by Darth Vader, ruler of the dark spaces in the galaxy and TIE Fighter star ship. Unique element of this watch is the time indicating mechanism which uses four different nylon belts to display current time with utmost accuracy. Elements like the connecting screws of watch case have Darth Vader’s helmet like ending and the side panels of this rectangular watch resemble the TIE fighter’s wings. Other things that replicate Star Wars theme include the ribbed leather strap which has close resemblance to Darth Vader’s gloves and Galactic Empire logo.
The rectangular-shaped watch has 4 microstep motors that power the mechanism for timekeeping and the attention to detail can be gauged from the fact that 350 individual parts and 313 electrical contacts make-up it complete. To charge-up the timepiece you have to just place it on the wireless charging dock and that is cool feature to have in a watch.
A watch this exclusive by Disney will obviously be a limited edition make and will come in only 500 units. 50 of these 500 watches have already been pre-ordered and that isn’t surprising at all. The price tag of $28,500 might sound quite a lot, but as a Star Wars collectible fan you’ll be lured to get this exclusive timepiece on your wrist. This Star Wars Devon watch will come in a Star Wars themed case accompanied with a pair of TIE Fighter cufflinks to complete the look.
