The Star Wars saga is perhaps the cult classic amongst geeks, so it’s no surprise to see products like the above watch making the rounds whenever they’re announced. Seiko Japan is putting out a series of wristwatches featuring various characters from the films. The one in the picture is the Seiko Brightz R2-D2, and features a 300dpi screen that can display scenes from the movies. Other watches are more traditional looking and come in flavours of Darth Maul, Darth Vader and Stormtroopers. Depending on the model, there will be between 500 and 1,500 of each made. With limited supply comes of course the fancy prices: around $1,800, although now that they’re already on the market, you can find some on eBay for less.
