This Friday, on Dec. 18, J.J. Abrams’ highly anticipated Star Wars continuation, Star Wars: Episode VII, will hit movie theaters. The film takes place 30 years after Return of the Jedi; Han Solo and his allies face a new threat from the evil Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and his army of Stormtroopers. In honor of the greatest cinematic event of the year, we’ve decided to highlight five very cool items from what will no doubt be a billion dollar+ marketing empire. Without further ado, may the force be with you.
DEVON STAR WARS WATCH
Really rich Star Wars fans will want to scoop up this stunning timepiece from Devon. Featuring 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. An impressive kinetic sculpture, everything about this watch is as compact and smooth-maneuvering as the TIE Fighters and as intense and intimidating as Darth Vader. Silver screws at the base of the watch emulate those on Darth Vader’s helmet. Rather than using Dark Side alchemy to further strengthen the metal, Devon teamed up with an aerospace engineering company to create a strong and fluid watch that is as impressive as Darth Vader’s armor. The hexagonal wing of the TIE Fighter is one of the more recognizable shapes from Star Wars and is depicted on either side of the watch, as well as the indicator on the face. The shape creates a peek at the red and green motor covers that are representative of the controls on Darth Vader’s center console. All of this is protected by scratch-resistant polycarbonate with bulletproof durability. While the watch does not draw on the energy of starlight, it does mimic the advanced design of the starship. The symbol of the Galactic Empire, the Imperial Crest, is featured on the crown used to operate the watch, and is a reminder of the steadfast determination and loyalty the TIE Fighter pilots had toward the empire. Power for the Devon Star Wars watch is provided by a rechargeable cell that runs for up to two weeks on a single charge. You better scoop this baby up quick though; there are only 500 pieces available.
Available for pre-order at Devon, $28,500

MATCHLESS LONDON’S FINN JACKET
U.K.-based company Matchless London has created a 16-piece Star Wars-centric capsule collection.
