And for the ultimate fan, here’s a $28,500 luxury Darth Vader watch.
Crafted by watchmaker Devon, this timepiece
“[uses] technology taken from the cockpits of modern airliners, Devon created a system of four microstep motors powered by a hybrid electro-mechanical source, along with an optical recognition system that tells time more precisely than any purely mechanical watch made today. So precise, in fact, that it is accurate to within one half second per day. Details in this rare watch are dramatic and angular, and reflect iconic parts of the TIE Fighter and Darth Vader’s armor. The design is so advanced, one would not be surprised if Darth Vader himself were seen wearing it. The look is intense. The movements of the interwoven time belts are mesmerizing. The craftsmanship is extraordinary. Feel the strength. Feel the power. Feel the force.”
