This gorgeous, limited edition Star Wars: The Force Awakens watch costs $28,000

Devon Works, a watch maker based in California, has come up with this striking, and very limited timepiece to attract Star Wars fans, ahead of The Force Awakens movie out at the end of this year. Blending a unique method of telling the time with a variety of Star Wars themed design touches, it’s like nothing you’ll have seen before. However, only 500 will be produced, and they cost a galactic $28,500 each, meaning it’ll only be a select few Star Wars fans strapping this to their wrists in the near future.

What makes this a Star Wars watch? Made from stainless steel and covered with a black, diamond-like carbon coating, it would fit perfectly with Darth Vader’s suit, if he was looking for something a bit flashy. Devon has incorporated the iconic TIE Fighter wing design into the body, added the Empire’s logo to the crown, used elements from Vader’s helmet for the case, and made the strap with textured leather similar to Vader’s gloves.

It looks superb, but the watch face is even more impressive. Devon has used a system it calls “Time Belts” to show the time. These electromechanically powered belts are made from reinforced nylon taken from the aerospace industry, and use 313 electrical contacts, optical recognition cells, and tiny motors to operate. Devon says the technology used to make the watch simply didn’t exist before, and everything we see has been made specially for this stunning watch.

The watch is charged wirelessly — the battery lasts for two weeks — and is presented in a TIE Figther display case, plus it comes with a set of TIE Fighter cufflinks. It’s not a subtle watch either, measuring 22mm deep and 61mm wide. We doubt the pictures do the final product much justice, it’s so filled with detail, so it’s a shame that only incredibly wealthy Star Wars fans will ever get to own one.

The 500 watches will be produced over a two-year period, and can be pre-ordered here with a $2,500 deposit.

How to watch the Star Wars movies in order
Kylo and Rey fighting in Rise of the Skywalker

Are you a Star Wars fan considering options for a movie marathon? Are you trying to get a friend or a significant other into the franchise, but you aren't sure in which order to introduce the stories? We get it. When the original trilogy concluded in 1983, the order was pretty simple, and the home-viewing options were fairly limited. Today, the number of live-action Star Wars films has increased to the double digits, and almost half of those movies are prequels.

To help you decide, we've considered the three most popular options: Release order, chronological order, and the so-called machete order. We'll give you the pros and cons of all three options and tell you which one we ultimately think is the best choice.

The Star Wars TV episodes to watch before The Mandalorian
Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Season 2 of The Mandalorian on Disney+ is off to a memorable start, introducing a host of new characters along with plenty of fan-favorite heroes and villains from elsewhere in Star Wars lore.

Along with forging some important connections to the Star Wars film franchise, The Mandalorian has drawn heavily from two beloved animated series set within the saga's timeline: Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels. The two series are set between the events of Star Wars: Episode II -- Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode IV -- A New Hope (occasionally overlapping with the events of Episode III -- Revenge of the Sith), so there's a lot of background material covered in both shows, as well as some key characters who now play important roles in The Mandalorian.
