Whatever reasons people might have for buying this limited edition Star Wars watch, it's definitely not about knowing what time it is. It is simply to impress people. Because wearing a $28,500 timepiece means you're the kind of person who can afford a $28,500 timepiece.
Inspired by the Galactic Empire, this stainless steel chronometer is limited to 500 pieces. California-based luxury watch maker Devon Works says it has 350 individual parts, four time belts, four microstep motors and 313 electrical contacts. Covered with a black, diamond-like carbon coating, the timepiece also features an on-board microprocessor, multiple high-tech optical recognition cells, lubricant-free ruby bearings and a lithium-polymer cell that recharges wirelessly through an inductive charging tower.
The wristwatch has a Darth Vader helmet, a TIE fighter wing, an Imperial Crest and comes with a pair of TIE Fighter cuff links as well. For a closer look, check out this video:
