R2-D2 Wristwatch tells the time as it is, galactic style
Which is the most useful droid around in the Star Wars universe? Most folks would automatically vote for R2-D2, as that is one astromech droid who has saved the Rebel Alliance many times over. We have seen R2-D2 arrive in the form of a timepiece before, but this time around, it comes in a far more advanced form factor. The $249.95 R2-D2 Wristwatch happens to be an official Star Wars collector’s watch, where it bears the hallmark colors and design motifs of the most popular droid in the galaxy.
Heck, this wristwatch even comes with Artoo’s iconic optical lenses, where it will be able to let you know of the time by pointing a red-tipped hand to the hour on an outer dial. Apart from that, there is also a yellow-tipped hand that counts off the minutes on an inner dial. The watch’s bezel itself will be able to turn by hand in order to mimic the spinning of the droid’s dome, all the while making a winding sound. Accurate Japanese quartz movement ensures that the time is kept properly, while the stainless steel case comes across in a splash resistant form factor. Each purchase will also arrive in a collector’s box that includes a numbered certificate of authenticity, which means that this is an officially licensed product by LucasFilm.
