Watch What-If: Luxury Swiss Star Wars Watches Watch What-If

Star Wars fever is back this year, as later in 2015, the popular science fiction movie franchise sees its seventh film with Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We recently learned that Nixon from California will be producing some exclusive Star Wars watches, and it is no secret that many modern, avant-garde luxury watches were inspired by story universes such as Star Wars and Star Trek. To that end, we wanted to see what it might be like to have Star Wars watches produced by some of the more popular and “mainstream” luxury Swiss watch makers – which is the subject of this installment of “Watch What-If.”

Once again, the art and concepts are by Niklas Bergenstjerna – who worked with us to create these five fantasy Star Wars watches by Swiss watch brands you know. The idea is that the characters who inspired these watches might very likely actually wear them (if either were to exist). I hope that these fit into the almost religious “Star Wars canon.” Here are words directly from Mr. Bergenstjerna:

Omega Jedi-Master Watch: Yoda

The Blancpain Tribute to Fifty Fathoms Mil-Spec can be obtained on one of three choices: Blancpain’s now-familiar rubber-backed sailcloth, a stainless steel necklace, or a black NATO strap — the latter of which appears to best disguise the price point and coincide with the watch’s UDT trappings most efficiently between the three. The cost on the bracelet is $14,100. Since 1735, Blancpain has already been creating mechanical watches that establish standards of excellence. The Swiss manufacturer is known for breathtaking improvements in the watchmaking world and it may be described as the revolutionary brand that knows how to be different from others.An interesting fact about Blancpain is that it has never generated quartz timepieces in the past and in accordance with their commercial slogan, they never will. Also, this daring watchmaker asserts that it will never create watches with digital displays.The Blancpain brand was set at the start of the 18th century by Jehan-Jacques Blancpain who launched his first workshop on the top floor of his house in Villeret, Switzerland. That is how the narrative of the world’s oldest watchmaking brand began.

Above, you’ll find a minimalistic classic watch for Jedi Master Yoda, that is ceramic and made to last for a very long time. No fuss, just the time in the Jedi-Master watches. Less is more. Though, an additional digital ”wood-cord-watch” is useful when leaving Dagobah for other places in the universe. The crest of the Jedi Council and Yoda’s personal crest are on the dial, and there is a classic Yoda quote on the bezel.

Hublot Big Bang Bounty Hunter – Boba Fett

A bold digital daily beater for the bounty hunter in need of keeping deadlines. Boba Fett would approve. The symbols in the center and the upper left corner are from Boba Fett’s armor: a Mandalorian crest and skull.

 Blancpain Naboo Watch – Queen Amidala

Queen Amidala’s make-up was the inspiration for the overall white design with details in red. The Naboo royal crest is in the center of the dial, along with details in lace.

Zenith Star Pilot Parsec – Han Solo

A transparent Zenith “modern” pilot watch with a Han Solo quote. Parsec meter subsidiary dial is for racing, and no need for a crown, since it’s adjusted by touch on the right side of the case. Large asteroid crater dial and Rebel Alliance strap.
