Celebrate the 35th Anniversary of Star Wars: A New Hope, with a $1100 Watch!
A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, Star Wars: A New Hope debuted on May 25th, 1977. Would you believe that Star Wars: A New Hope is 35 years old?! So what a prefect way to commemorate the 35 year old movie, than with an awesome watch. This super geeky import from Japan depicts all the key elements of the Star Wars Franchise – the Death Star, the Imperial TIE Fighter, and Darth Vader, in his full glory on the back of the watch. I guess there is a reason why they call this the Darth Vader Watch. After all, it just screams dark side.
Believe it or not, the 35th anniversary watch doesn’t feature any of the good guys, and it is adorned all in black – from the face of the watch to the band. Plus, the watch face not only has key elements of Darth Vader’s world, but also stars that shimmer in the galaxy.
The Darth Vader watch retails for $1099.99. And sure, that is a lot of dough for a watch celebrating something that took place 35 years ago. But hey, at least it is an official LucasFilm product, which helps justify the price tag – a bit.
