Sophisticated Sci-Fi Timepieces

The Seiko Luxury Star Wars Watches are Gorgeously Geeky

— September 26, 2012 — Fashion
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.
Trend Themes
1. Luxury Sci-fi Timepieces - Luxury brands can capitalize on the nerd culture by creating their own sci-fi inspired timepieces with high-end materials.
2. Digital Analog Hybrid Watches - Consumers are interested in watches that combine the classic look of analog watches and the modern functionality of digital watches.
3. Limited Edition Collectible Watches - Similar to luxury cars, limited edition collectible watches can attract enthusiasts and collectors who are willing to pay a premium for exclusivity.
Industry Implications
1. Luxury Watches - Luxury watch brands can target the sci-fi niche market and incorporate popular sci-fi franchises in their collections to expand their customer base.
2. Consumer Electronics - Watch manufacturers can incorporate advanced technology such as digital displays and other smartwatch features into analog watches to attract tech enthusiasts.
3. Pop Culture Collectibles - Collectible companies can create limited edition watch collections featuring popular franchises and characters to target collectors within the pop culture fandom community.
