CITIZEN X STAR WARS REBEL PILOT WATCH

Horologists like Breitling are known for their watches with faces full of complications designed to assist pilots, but Citizen has a pair of new timekeepers that explore what a watch worn by an X-Wing or TIE Fighter pilot in the Star Wars universe might look like.

Sure, a pilot’s watch in that far away galaxy would probably be redundant given astromech droids usually tag along and give spaceship pilots all the help they could ever need, but it’s still a fun design exercise, and by resurrecting one of its 80’s era analogue-digital hybrid models, Citizen has done a good job at capturing the gritty Star Wars aesthetic.

Two versions of the watch are available: the “Rebel Pilot” features symbols and graphics inspired by the flight suits and helmets of the Rebel Alliance, and the “Trench Run” that instead draws inspiration from imagery and the targeting displays inside one of the Empire’s TIE fighters.
