Joined the Dark Side, Nixon has, with its new Star Wars watches

Give in to temptation and get this timepiece inspired by the villains from a galaxy far, far away

Nixon knows the power of the Dark Side. So much, it has surrendered to it with its new range of Star Wars watches.

The homage to the antagonists from George Lucas’ timeless space opera comes in four flavours, aptly named Darth Vader, Stormtrooper, Imperial Pilot from the Galatic Empire and the infamous bounty hunter Boba Fett.

This is still, first and foremost, a watch, so expect the bespoke design of a timepiece taking centrestage. Subtle hints taken from the Star Wars universe is still visible, one of which is the hour hand in the form of an Imperial symbol while a mini Death Star adorns the 12 o’clock position. Look closely at the teaser video, and you’ll catch something familiar on the 6 o’clock position - Lord Vader’s signature mask.

Details of when the Nixon Star Wars collection will go on sale are still in the dark. What we’re sure is, when it’s available, scores of fans will turn to the Dark Side and strap on.

Hopefully, by the next Star Wars Day, Nixon will bring balance to the Force and reveal new Jedi-inspired watches for this range.
