NEW YORK, Oct. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Citizen joins the Triple Force Friday celebration with the unveiling of five Limited Edition Star Wars timepieces that will be sold on Amazon.com starting Friday, October 4.
The collection, which is inspired by the original trilogy of films, kicks off paying tribute to the iconic hero of the Rebel Alliance, with a limited edition Luke Skywalker themed timepiece. Featuring stylistic detailing reminiscent of Luke Skywalker's pilot helmet, the watch's black dial with white indices features red and yellow hues highlighting the 1/5-second chronograph measuring up to 60 minutes, 12/24-hour time and date. The 44mm stainless steel case holds a dark grey bezel with a matching Cordura strap. Complete with a lightsaber inspired chronograph second hand, this timepiece is limited to only 1,977 pieces globally.
Han Solo is also represented in the collection with a 1,977 piece global limited edition watch. The unique timepiece draws inspiration from Solo's classic uniform of blue pants with a brown leather studded belt. Those elements are represented on the strap of the timepiece as well as on the blue dial featuring his iconic red stripe.
Introduced in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Boba Fett is undoubtedly one of the most iconic characters of the franchise. Inspired by the feared bounty hunter, Citizen unveils a limited edition Boba Fett themed timepiece complete with olive green dial and leather strap. With the dial design cues drawn from the Boba Fett's distressed helmet, chest armor and rockets, the timepiece is limited to 1,980 pieces globally.
To round out the character timepieces, Citizen looked to the dark side of the Force to unveil the Darth Vader inspired watch. Inspired by his signature black aesthetic and historic ensemble design elements, the timepiece features a mesh dial pattern evocative of Vader's ventilator, the Imperial symbol, and his chest ribbing pattern. The stainless steel black case and matching bracelet highlight the black dial with red and blue detailing drawing hues from Vader's chest module. The timepiece is limited to 1,977 pieces globally.
The collection is completed with the limited edition Death Star themed watch, paying homage to the galactic super-weapon. The 40mm timepiece features a black out stainless-steel case and bracelet with a luminous Death Star printed on the dial. When glowing, the dial illuminates with a green silhouette of the infamous moon-sized space station. This timepiece is limited to 1,977 pieces.
