Star Wars Watches

Having an ugly watch can lead to sadness, sadness leads to anger and anger leads to the Dark Side. Well now Seiko watches have created a range of awesome bracelet watches for all the Star Wars fanatics amongst us.

The watches are limited edition and sadly will only be available in Japan, which may as well be Naboo for most of us, as it means we will never get our hands on any of the 6 character designed pieces. However, knowing that they exist somewhere in this galaxy is enough to make me a happy chappy.

The six characters selected to be redesigned as a watch are Darth Vader, Yoda, R2D2, Darth Maul, a Stormtrooper and C3PO, probably not because they are all the most influential characters, but because they all have a unique aspect to their style that makes them so easily identifiable, unlike Han Solo or Luke Skywalker.

The real star of the range is the unsung hero of the whole Star Wars franchise, R2D2. He is always there at all of the most pivotal moments, carrying a message, opening doors, fixing the Millennium Falcon… and so on, well now Artoo has been made into the coolest watch in this range.

The R2D2 watch looks completely different to the other 5, which despite all being very very cool, all look relatively similar, but the Artoo watch is digital instead of analogue and the case is in a completely different shape. The other 5 watches all have round chronograph dials with colour schemes unique to their character.

Limited to just 5000 pieces in the world, these Star wars watches are going to be hard to get your hands on, some Jedi mind tricks may be in order. These ARE the watches you’re looking for.
