Star Wars – The Watch Saga
Thursday 17th December
The Excitement has just about reached a pinnacle around today’s Star Wars launch. There has been debates, spoilers and months and months of teasers been viewed…. and that’s just in the Watch Hospital HQ! Reviews are already branding the latest edition to the saga as a classic and we simply can't wait to see it.
In terms of hype, the franchise has now been successfully taken to new heights and nobody does collectable merchandise like Disney Studios. Stores and websites alike have been flooded with hundreds of products inspired by the film and it’s characters. To the delight of our team this has also brought a colourful variety of Star Wars themed watches to the market, everything from the endearing to the bizarre.
Our Favourite Star Wars Time Pieces
We’ve taken a look at our favorite Star Wars timepieces, the most outlandish been the below, part of a 500 pcs limited model from LA based brand Devon, simply called The Star Wars Watch. Retailing at a staggering $28,500 this features over 350 individual pieces, 4 microstep motors, 4 fiberglass-reinforced nylon belts, and 313 electrical contacts. “This substantial watch is as revolutionary as the TIE Fighter Starship itself.”
For a more reasonably priced timepiece we’ve looked a little closer to home. Some of our long-standing favourite brands have equally brought imaginative approaches to the Star Wars inspired theme.
Storm have been one of our favourite brands at The Watch Hospital for some years, not only do they lead the way in statement designs but the precision, quality and range of materials used in their conception separates them distinctly from the rest.
The Storm philosophy is built around a cult of individualism, thus leaving no surprise that the model that was inspired by an iconic mask from a Galaxy far, far away looks stylishly like no other. The Darth comes in 4 colourways black, blue, mirror, and white and is available in selected Watch Hospital Stores
It’s easy to forget that there is a new generation about to be wowed, amazed and submerged into the wonder of the saga that millions of ‘big kids’ have been enjoying for years. Appropriately, we’ve stocked up on a charming range perfect for kids and we can’t see the stock lasting long.
These models are some of our favourite characters with some quirky features added. The Darth Vader and Storm trooper models feature Star Wars image projectors on the side! Available in selected Watch Hospital stores only.
