Ep66: Use the force… to tell time

Sep 23, 2015 | Podcast episode

In this episode: In this episode we talk about a Star Wars inspired watch that's even *more* expensive than an Apple Watch and with less tech, Fall Dapper Day at Disneyland and we start the discussion (which we'll continue in the next episode) about the new American Experience documentary about Walt Disney.

°o° --------------------- °o°

We started off the episode talking about a Darth Vader watch but before we did, we talked about Android Wear and Apple Watches.

moto-360-watch-android

2nd Generation Moto 360; 46mm watch. Price starts at $400.

apple-watch-ios-edition

iOS only; Apple Watch; Gold Edition; Price starts at $15,000.

Do you own either of these? What do you think about it/them?

If you thought $15,000+ for an Apple Watch was expensive, Devonworks raised the bar by creating a Limited Edition Star Wars (Darth Vader inspired) watch that comes in at a whopping $28,500! That’s Death Star money, y’all!

They also made the following commercial for the watch below:

Watchmaker Nixon has also come up with their own line of Star Wars watches that start at a huge fraction of the cost above (which start around $125 per watch). Their first line is officially dubbed Nixon: Dark Side Collection Part 1. These designs are much more simplistic that the Devon watch and are both classy and can also fall into the “everyday wear” category. Check out the designs below:

They even have their own commercial that you can take a look at below:

By the end of September 2015, Nixon will release 4 more collections: Dark Side: Stormtropper, Imperial Pilot, Darth Vader and Boba Fett. For more info and if you’re interested in purchasing one, check out Nixon’s website at: Nixon Dark Side Collection: Part 1

If you’re ever heard us say or refer to #SupKori it’s because of our pal, Kori Celeste. Kori has an amazing singing voice and did a crazy good cover of Jessica Rabbit’s “Why Don’t You Do Right?”. Below is a playlist of Kori’s covers on Soundcloud:
