Luxury watchmaker Devon has introduced a hand-crafted, Star Wars watch that is probably a lot more than you ever knew you’d want to spend on a watch.
The Star Wars watch costs an astonishing $28,500 USD. To secure your copy, you need to put down a $2,500 deposit for a pre-order.
The watch will then be built and tested for quality before being sent to you. The number of copies for this watch is limited to just 500.
Finding people willing to wear this vast and ostentatious luxury Star Wars watch will not be an easy task. But it will surely find its clients or confectioners.
It’s a luxury grown-up watch cast in a Star Wars theme. More specifically, it’s Devon’s Tread 1 model, dressed up in Darth Vader-inspired livery, so it looks like a standard issue equipment for Empire forces in their quest to crush the Rebel Alliance.
Luxury Devon Star Wars Watch
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the first in a set of five new Star Wars films being made, and is expected to offer revolutionary special effects, characters, and action-packed adventure.
Similarly, the new watch from this cutting-edge American brand packs a powerful punch. After all, what other watch brand uses glass-enforced nylon belts to indicate the time?
The Devon Star Wars Watch uses the company’s tread-based time-telling system, which uses numbers on rotating belts to show the time, powered by a sophisticated machinery behind the scenes.
It comes with 350 individual parts, four-time belts, four micro-step motors, and 313 electrical contacts, all housed inside the stainless steel case with a diamond-like real black coating and scratch-resistant polycarbonate lens.
It uses a rechargeable battery that can power for up to two weeks on a single charge.
Anyone who buys this will do so based on the Star Wars elements, of which there are plenty.
It’s overwhelmingly black, with gray accents, light-gray indicators, and red-and-green motor covers that resemble the switches on the Sith Lord’s chest console.
The case flanks are clipped right out of the wings of a TIE Fighter, with the oversized crown sporting the Imperial logo.
May the force be with you!
Officially licensed and limited to 500 watches, this is the Devon Works for Star Wars watch which is based on the Devon Tread. Price is $28,500.
It has main screws that look like turbine intakes, mimicking the spikes on the bottom of the grilles on Anakin’s helmet, as well as a leather strap that borrows design elements from Vader’s glove.
Limited Star Wars Watch Final Words
Like all Devon watches, the new Star Wars by Devon watch houses materials sourced from a California aerospace company.
The advanced engineering in the Star Wars by Devon watch combines glass-reinforced nylon belts with four separate multiple high-tech optical recognition cells, four micro-step motors, and an incredible 313 electrical contacts.
Like the movie, the watch embodies a host of details that one can revel in like a meteor shower. The wings of the TIE Fighter aircraft are architecturally incorporated into the sides of the case.
The screws that connect the case and lugs resemble aircraft turbine intakes, complete with pointed silver screws on the end that recall the ones on Darth Vader’s helmet.
Inside the movement, the belt system utilizes four motor covers that, in this case, are created in red and green to reflect the buttons on Darth Vader’s center console.
The top of the watch features a center hexagonal disk with TIE Fighter inscriptions that exude a robotic feel, while at the same time clearly outline the hours, minutes and seconds.
Only 500 units of the Devon Star Wars Watch will be made, priced at a whopping $28,500.
