Star Wars fans are ride-or-die. We’re not casual about our love for George Lucas’ epic space fantasy, but sometimes we gotta keep it professional. Just because your dumb boss says you can’t wear your Jedi robes to work anymore doesn’t mean you can’t express your Star Wars fandom in more subtle ways.
Nixon watches teamed up with Lucasfilm to bring you officially licensed Star Wars watches that are as beautiful as they are geeky. The watches are meticulously designed with fans in mind — there are almost enough easter eggs to rival Rogue One. To the untrained eye, though, these are just some chic and cool timepieces.
Princess Leia fans will want to check out this watch based on her (in)famous metal bikini in Jabba’s palace. Many women view Slayer Leia as an icon of empowerment, using the chains that enslaved her to break free from oppression. The back is engraved with a silhouette of Jabba and chains, along with the words “can’t hold me down.” You can channel that badass energy while you slay mansplainers in your quarterly meeting.
Speaking of Leia, her lovely father has a watch of his own — and it looks as dark and badass as you’d expect it would. Thanks to his unfortunate fall at Mustafar, Darth Vader is gorgeously encompassed in this slick, matte black watch, complete with a custom dial and bezels inspired by his ventilation mask and the Imperial logo on the hour hand. If you weren’t already impressed, the back is engraved with his full helmet and “Most impressive.” Did you expect anything less?
For a character who speaks a total of five sentences in the original trilogy, Boba Fett sure made a lasting impression. Whether you admire his determination or just his cool armor, your can have the most feared bounty hunter in the galaxy grace your wrist with this Boba Fett watch. The engraving on the back is of his helmet and “as you wish” written underneath. Plus, as an added bonus, the inside of the band shows Han Solo frozen in Carbonite.
Apparently the fastest ship in the galaxy is such a fan favorite it warranted two separate designs. We’re not complaining, because both of these watches are super cool. The Kessel Run edition celebrates the Millennium Falcon’s crowning achievement (which doesn’t actually make any sense but rumor has it that the upcoming Han Solo movie is gonna answer to that) with a ring around the face “measuring” 12 parsecs — which we all know is a unit of distance, not time.
The other Millennium Falcon watch is a little sleeker and more sophisticated, which aren’t words I’d use to describe Han Solo but it’s apt for the legendary ship herself. What looks like an abstract design on the face to the untrained eye is actually the view from the Falcon’s cockpit window. With “never tell me the odds” engraved on the back, you can wear this when you want to bring a little roguish spirit to a tough project at work.
Another character worth (at least) two watches is our girl Rey. After stealing our hearts in The Force Awakens, Rey is on track to join Luke, Han, and Leia as one of the franchise’s most beloved and important characters. The first Rey watch is based on her scavenger outfit and houses a lightsaber second hand and rebel alliance 12 o’clock marker in the face. The back is engraved with her profile and the quote “follow me.” We will, Rey. We’ll follow you anywhere.
The second Rey watch is a ThinkGeek exclusive. It has all the same details but is a little more dainty with a skinnier band and sleek round face. Even non-Star Wars fans (as if there is such a thing) will love this design.
Another badass lady and fan favorite from The Force Awakens, Captain Phasma has her own watch too. All silver everything like the Captain herself, this watch looks just as authoritative as she does. The First Order symbol is embedded in the face and the second hand is inspired by a blaster. The engraving on the back is of her helmet, with the words “on my command.” Don’t make her say it twice.
Speaking of the First Order, their angsty commander Kylo Ren has his own watch too. This one will be pretty abstract to many, but true fans will recognize that the machine casing based on Ren’s lightsaber, with custom bezels inspired by his helmet — which is also engraved on the back as well. Just as intense as he is, this watch is made of titanium and is submergible up to 200 meters.
If you were a huge fan of The Force Awakens but feel like Kylo Ren’s watch is a bit too dark and emotional teenager for you, perhaps you’ll want to go with something a little…cuter. Yup, we’re talking about everyone’s new favorite character, BB-8. This watch doesn’t have a pop-out lighter (unfortunately), but it is decked out in his iconic orange and white pattern along with a sleek stainless steel chain. That’s just how he rolls. (There’s an R2-D2 one, too. Excited beep.)
Rogue One fans, we didn’t forget about you (though some people might want to.) Y’all are rebellious to the core, just like the hero Jyn Erso. Her watch is engraved with the simple message, “I rebel.” Inspired by her flack jacket, this watch is a little more rugged than the others, but still cool and subtle. Best of all, you’ll smuggle the Death Star plans just like Jyn did — they’re etched into the back of the band.
Whether you’re an original trilogy OG, fell in love with The Force Awakens, or are one of the few people still stoked about Rogue One, you’ll be able to emulate your favorite character proudly without getting written up by HR.
