What elevates a Star Wars watch to designer status? Uhhh...price tag? Sophisticated aesthetics? Not coming attached to a rubbery plastic band my dog and I can chew on? And if that's the case, why exactly would I want a designer Star Wars watch? I kind of like the one I got for $5 at Ben Franklin with Vader's helmet as the background, his left arm as the hour hand, and his red lightsaber as the minute hand. It broke though, so it only really tells whatever time I manually set it to, which is usually whatever time my mama says my food is going to be ready.
Might be nice to have a watch from a galaxy far, far away that performs the intended function of a watch. And Vader's perpetual wet blanket face is getting old anyway. Maybe I could use an R2D2 upgrade. Or a Stormtrooper should I decide to stay on the Dark Side. Additional timepiece character options, courtesy of ThinkGeek, include Luke Skywalker, Boba Fett, and The Dark Lord of the Sith.
