The latest edition of Star Wars has fans
feverishly snapping up soon forgotten
collectibles such as Wookie water bottles.
A watch, on the other hand, is something
we all need to avoid the fury of parking
meters or dinner dates.

Devon Works is known for intricate timepieces that are
also intricate works of art, and this latest raises the bar
even higher. Inspired by the Sith Lord, their Darth Vader
watch uses a complex series of glass-reinforced conveyor
belts powered by a hybrid electro-mechanical movement
to display the time. Utilizing more than 300 precision-
crafted parts from the aerospace industry, this watch
was built from scratch, with the engineers creating it as
they went. Just as Darth Vader is the biggest badass (who
might have a soft side) in the universe, this watch is also
one of the most intriguing timepieces on the market.
From the exterior black diamond-like carbon finish to the
fiendishly-pointed screws straight off Vader’s helmet, this
is the watch you expect to see on George Lucas’ wrist.
Production is limited to 500 pieces, so only a few hard-
core Star Wars fans will have the chance to “use the
force” to tell the time; $28,500 with matching cufflinks;
