Citizen Reveals New Star Wars Imperial Stormtrooper Design, Adding to Collection of High-Quality Watches

Today at an event in New York City attended by cast members from Lucasfilm’s enduring space-opera franchise, the popular Citizen watch brand revealed a new Star Wars design inspired by the Imperial Stormtrooper.

The Imperial Stormtrooper design will sell for $350, and Citizen describes it as follows: “The fearsome power of the Galactic Empire is expressed through this timepiece, featuring three iconic white ‘buckethead’ helmets, luminous numeric markers in a Star Wars inspired font, and a perforated silicone strap.”

This sharp new design joins a number of other attractive and highly detailed Star Wars-inspired watches from Citizen, including the following:

The Duel watch ($280) “showcases one of the most epic lightsaber duels in the Star Wars galaxy on its dial, the struggle between Luke Skywalker  and Darth Vader on Cloud City. Featuring a black outlined dial with pops of green and markers in blue and red, this uniquely designed watch face creates a domed effect giving the illusion that it is a 3D image.”

The Death Star 2 watch ($340) “features the intimidating Death Star on a black and white two-tone accented dial. Its 3 hands appear as lightsabers, a luminous face highlights the X-wing fighter, and the 12 and 6 markers are angled to evoke the famous opening crawl of the Star Wars films.”

Darth Maul is featured on a striking timepiece ($300), which “features the infamous warrior's distinctive red and black markings, yellow horns on the dial, and black ion-plated stainless steel band. This collector’s watch has a 1-second chronograph, a convenient date display, and an etching of Darth Maul on the case back.”

And you can continue your path to the dark side with the Darth Vader watch ($316), a “44mm chronograph in a bold black case, channeling the dark dominance of the Sith Lord with red detailing throughout. An illustration of Darth Vader’s helmet, a TIE fighter, and details from a starfighter’s screen decorate the display's sub-dials, while along the periphery of the dial luminous crimson hour markers harken to the Sith's iconic red lightsaber.”
