You’re certain to feel the force when you get hold of this Star Wars watch winder built in the shape of the X1 Tie-Fighter.
Created as a collaboration between Swiss design manufacturer Studio Kross and Lucasfilm Ltd., this functional sculpture has been inspired by the TIE Advanced x1 Starfighter shown in the movie, Star Wars: A New Hope- the real fans among you will remember it as being the vehicle piloted by Darth Vader.
As a fully operational art object, the piece integrates its winding engine into a solid aluminum sculpture, which is equipped with an infrared sensor to detect the watch, and then activate its winder. With a battery life that lasts over two years, the piece remains in standby mode to conserve power.
