Tatooine Sand Watches: Because a Sundial Won’t Work There

 |  |  |  |  September 7, 2014

Own a piece of Star Wars history on your wrist with this beautiful watch. It contains sand from the Tunisian set where the Tatooine scenes were filmed.

The Tunisian sand is sealed inside the case and it even moves around as you move your wrist. Plus, the watch face looks pretty cool. The case is made of solid 316L medical-grade steel with Seiko-Epson quartz movements and leather bands. The funds raised will be used to make the watches, and will also help restore and preserve the crumbling sets in Tunisia. So it is a good geeky cause even aside from getting a cool watch. You see, some of the sets are at risk of being swallowed by sand dunes.

This Kickstarter is fully funded, but there is still time to pledge and get your own watch for just $77(USD). This second edition of watches will be the last, so get one while you can.
