Earlier this summer, Nixon launched two Star Wars-inspired watches, both of which honor the bad guys—the black Ranger Imperial Pilot and the white Ranger Stormtrooper watches. Each feature subtle but clever design touches, like an Imperial marker at the 12 o’clock position and a bezel around the watch faces designed to resemble the characters’ utility belts.
If you look closely, you’ll see the minute and hour hands are also inspired by the characters’ ventilation systems. The movie logo is engraved on the back.
The watches, waterproof down to 100 meters, should hold up well to abuse, unless of course you’re crashing into trees on the forest moon of Endor or swimming in Naboo’s underwater city of Otoh Gunga.
