R2D2 Digital Watch


This is going to be the last Star Wars gadget I report on (well unless something really cool comes along), and that’s only because I remember seeing this one as a kid when I was younger, the exceedingly tacky R2D2 digital watch.

I’m guessing it’s the cylindrical shape of R2 that makes the Astromech droid the butt of all merchandising jokes, so without further ado here is the 1986 flip up R2D2 wrist watch.

To see the time you simply lift his head, though due to the age I’ve only seen it on eBay recently and the classic thing about this auction is it doesn’t even work.

Hat tip to Robert of Smidigt for the tip.
