While many of our blogs often focus on serious topics, such as important news in the horological community or the technical specifics of how a watch works, we do occasionally venture into lighter fare here on our blog as well.

Watch Picks for Star Wars

Over the last several years, May 4th has become something of an informal holiday, especially among “Star Wars” fans. The reason for this is because May 4th sounds very similar to “May the force…,” and “Star Wars” aficionados have seized upon the opportunity to now annually show how much they love the franchise after all these years.

In honor of what has now come to be dubbed “Star Wars Day” by many across the globe, we thought it would be fun to speculate about what kinds of watches some of your favorite characters from the franchise would wear if they were real people. With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at these watches and their likely fictional counterparts.

Han Solo – IWC Big Pilot

While Luke Skywalker may be the focal point of the original trilogy of films, and the primary hero of the saga, there’s a very strong argument to be made that the series’ most beloved character is smuggler, pilot, and all-around rapscallion Han Solo, who was portrayed by Harrison Ford across six films, as well as by Ansel Elgort in a prequel film.

Considering that Solo is one of the galaxy’s most famous pilots, it seems pretty reasonable that he would wear an IWC Big Pilot. The company came to prominence originally producing chronographs for pilots, so the watch would likely be tailored to his needs. He also likely would have had a Rubber B Navy Blue Alligator Strap, considering all of the scrapes that he got into over the years.

Who played Chewbacca?

Who played Chewbacca in star wars?

Peter William Mayhew was a British-American actor who died on April 30, 2019. He was well recognized for his role as Chewbacca in the Star Wars film franchise. He performed the character in every live-action film he appeared in, from the 1977 original through 2015’s The Force Awakens, before retiring from the role.

Chewbacca –  Breitling Navitimer

Han Solo’s best friend and longtime navigator and second mate, Chewbacca was known for his loyalty to Han and his brute strength, as well as being very, very protective of his friends. Due to his job as the Millennium Falcon’s navigator, he probably would have worn a Breitling Navitimer timepiece, as well as a Rubber B Ballistic Strap to go with it.

Darth Vader – Ceramic Panerai Luminor 44mm 

One of the most iconic and immediately recognizable villains in cinema history, few characters have managed to be as iconic, imposing, or impenetrable as the fearsome Darth Vader, or Anakin Skywalker, as he was known to family and friends. Darth Vader’s entire aesthetic was one of imposition and intensity, so it only seems fitting that he would wear a Ceramic Panerai Luminor 44mm with a Rubber B Jet Black strap.

Princess Leia – Rolex Daytona on Oyster Bracelet Ceramic Bezel

A true hero and critical member of the Rebel Alliance, Princess Leia Organa (later General Organa) was known for her military cunning and her loyalty to her people, as well as being Han Solo’s wife and partner for many years. A stunning combination of elegance and practicality, we’re reasonably sure she would wear a Rolex Daytona with a Rubber B Arctic White Ballistic Strap.

Luke Skywalker – Rolex Explorer II 42mm 226570

From small-town farm boy to legendary Jedi Master, Luke Skywalker played a pivotal role in the destruction of the Empire and helped to restore balance in the galaxy while doing so. Luke’s fashion sense was often a combination of minimalist and adventurous, so it’s fairly easy to picture him wearing a Rolex Explorer II 42mm 226570 with a Rubber B Arctic White VC Mandarin Orange strap.

Yoda – Rolex Submariner Hulk Ceramic 40mm Glidelock

The beloved and wise Jedi master who first appeared in “The Empire Strikes Back,” Yoda is one of the franchise’s most popular, and often imitated, characters, largely due to his unique way of speaking and distinctive green skin. Yoda would likely be wearing a Rolex Submariner Hulk Ceramic 40mm Glidelock, along with a Rubber B Pine Green Alligator replacement strap.

Obi-Wan Kenobi – Patek Philippe Aquanaut 5167

Obi-Wan Kenobi managed to effortlessly combine mystery and elegance, and after really mulling this one over, it seemed pretty likely to us that he would be wearing a Patek Philippe Aquanaut 5167, along with one of our Goldmatic rubber watch straps.

Boba Fett – Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore 44mm

The galaxy’s most fearsome bounty hunter is going to need a watch that is as imposing and memorable as he is, so he would likely be wearing an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore 44mm with a Rubber B CAMO SwimSkin® Twill Charcoal Gray watch band.

Storm Troopers – IWC Mark XVII

Known for their ruthless precision and ice-white uniforms, these fearsome soldiers would likely be wearing IWC Mark XVII watches with our Arctic White watch straps to match their outfits.

R2D2 and C-3P0 – Apple Watch 44mm and 45mm

These two beloved droids would likely want something technically advanced that would give them access to a lot of information, so it’s fairly reasonable to think that they would be wearing Apple Watch 44mm and 45mm timepieces with Jet Black Ballistic straps.
