The Seiko Luxury Star Wars Watches are Gorgeously Geeky

Seiko Japan has unveiled an entire series of luxury Star Wars watches based on the iconic science fiction saga, and there are some truly out-of-this-world timepieces in the collection.

The watches don't all function the same. While most of the watches keep time with conventional analog movements, the R2-D2 watch is completely digital and showcases a fancy hi-res display. It's also the nerdiest watch of the bunch because it features a 300dpi black and white screen that actually displays scenes from the Star Wars movies!

However, if you're looking for something that won't severely hamper your chances of ever getting a date, then you might want to scope out some of the other designs. C-3P0, Yoda, Darth Vader, Darth Maul, and the Stormtrooper all have their own models, and all of them look just like your average high-class luxury watch, that is, until you turn them over to reveal their secret nerdy backplates with caricatures and engravings!

The Seiko luxury Star Wars Watches are all limited-edition pieces that sell for over $1,000. Considering that the Vader model is actually adorned with tiny diamonds, you can probably convince yourself that it's a wise investment.
