May The Fourth Be With you! This 4th of May, watchmaker Fossil unveils a new collection of Star Wars themed timepieces in collaboration with Star Wars in celebration of the 40th anniversary of Star Wars: The Return of The Jedi.
Melissa Lowenkron, Chief Brand Officer stated, “We’re thrilled to share this special collection celebrating a story that has made such a cultural impact on generations and that, like Fossil, evokes a feeling of nostalgia for so many. Made for fans by fans—we’re excited for people to discover the intricate details inspired by the film and to collect their favorite pieces from this exceptional collaboration.”
Each Piece Is Unique
The Star Wars x Fossil collection launches with six limited-edition timepieces, each individually-numbered and packaged in a collector’s box. There are also five more special-edition watches with comic-book-style graphic dials, but it is the main six in the collection that fans should keep their eye on. They include models inspired by:
The battle between the light and dark sides of the Force in Star Wars plays out on the dial of this piece, complete with Luke’s glowing green lume Lightsaber as the second hand and invisible blue lume Force lightning that glows in the dark.
Featuring an innovative time-telling mechanism, this design is inspired by Leia’s iconic Endor look with an invisible lume Rebellion sign that glows in the dark, padded leather strap that recalls her helmet and etched braid caseback detail.
This redesign of the Fossil Heritage watch has an effortlessly laid-back feel due to the rich leather saddle strap with golden yellow pant stripe detail and matching Star Wars accents on the dial.
On top of that, featuring a debossed fur texture on the dial, this special Fossil timepiece recalls Star Wars fan favourite, Chewie’s signature bandolier.
This timepiece is crafted around an applied, stamped and printed dimensional R2-D2 inspired frame, Japanese automatic movement, minute hand shaped like the droid’s repair tool arm and a day/night indicator with lume-filled Rebel sign.
The beloved droid comes to life on this square-shaped case with a gold-tone C-3PO face inspired frame, exposed automatic movement, silver-tone lug that matches C-3PO’s silver leg and etched droid cabling-inspired caseback detail.
