Boba Fett, the unsung antihero of the original Star Wars trilogy is finally receiving some of the praise he deserves. Sadly it’s not in the form of a standalone film, but it’s surely the next best thing. Nixon want’s to improve your overall appearance by fitting you with a limited Edition Diplomatic SW wristwatch with custom colouring inspired by the galaxy’s most notorious bounty hunter.
Limited to 100 pieces, the Diplomatic SW features a Cerakote case and band with matte green colouring to match Boba’s armour. The second hand is modelled on the bounty hunter’s weapon of choice – the EE-3 carbine rifle with his kill count lasered in gold at the top. Fans of the Star Wars expanded universe will recognise Jaster Mereel’s insignia printed on the crystal sapphire caseback. For everyone else, it’s the symbol seen on Boba’s spaceship.
The Swiss-made mechanical movement operates 3 watch hands and a date indicator, while the case is machined from custom stainless steel with an unidirectional rotating stainless steel bezel. Domed anti-glare sapphire crystal protects the face and underside, allowing you to view the movement rotor. Each wristwatch is also engraved with its individual serial number on the caseback. The watch band is designed for quick and tool-free adjustment.
The wristwatch packaging is a ridiculously nice touch. Presented in a matte green box with Star Wars and Nixon branding, the Diplomatic SW is resting at the centre of a velvety black replica of the Great Pit of Carkoon – Inside the toothy creature where Boba met his demise.
While we wait for Boba Fett to claw his way out of that Sarlacc pit and into a new Star Wars film, why not honour him by donning a piece of luxury jewellery. With a price tag of $3999, maybe you’d prefer to keep it in the box.
