The Devon Star Wars Limited Edition Is A Powerful Force
We’ve featured today the Sphero BB-8 and the Millennium Falcon bed, so it should not come as a surprise that we also announce the release of a special Star Wars-inspired watch, coming from the Devon Works. With the “Star Wars by Devon” luxury timepiece, the watchmaker has actually redesigned the Devon Tread 1 watch, specifically for Star Wars, after teaming up with Disney and Lucasfilm.
The Devon Star Wars is incredibly cool, nonetheless. This intergalactic offering has been entirely based on Darth Vader, his dark personality and the effects surrounding him from the films. Almost every design cue Darth Vader could have inspired, is featured in the complex architecture of this watch and even though it might look too complicated, it doesn’t really shout out ‘overkill’.
A Star Wars-themed watch could look cheap, like the kind of toys you buy your son knowing that he will mess it up; but… this watch doesn’t. Despite the Tie Fighter bits, and the Control Panel elements, this timepiece is sleek, elegant and absolutely amazing.
The case flanks are based on the wings of a Tie Fighter, the main screws that connect the case to the lugs are based on turbine intakes, finished in polished silver to emulate the spikes on the bottom of Darth Vader’s breathing grille, while the belt system utilizes four motor covers in red and green to mimic the switches on Darth Vader’s center console.
Aside from the unique design, the watch uses high-grade aviation materials in its construction. For instance, the belts are glass-reinforced nylon, as used in the original 747 gauges; Devon Works enlisted the help and expertise of the US Aviation Industry, resulting in a stunning stainless steel watch with black DLC coating and limited edition Tie Fighter cuff-links.
This is an amazingly quirky high-end gadget that will probably be on the list of every hardcore Star Wars fan out there, if they could afford it. You should know that only be 500 of these pieces will be available, delivered in a box that’s inspired by Darth Vader’s Tie Fighter. The price of such a cool watch will be $28,500.
