Star Wars "naked" C-3P0 watch

I have quite a few Star Wars watches in my collection, and this is the newest.

The watch was released around 1999, under authorization of Lucasfilm Ltd.

The face is shaped as the head of C-3P0, with fake chronograph dials as the eyes. The decoration is a "naked" C-3P0, as he is not covered in his normal gold shell, as it was released for Episode 1: The Phantom Menace (and it is set before he was completed).

The strap is a molded plastic one, with the pattern of bare wires down the surface.

There is no makers mark, but was made by Nelsonic. The watch back has the model number SW1011 and/or 056-PC21AE.

It was released at a price of around $50, but is still sold in some shops for a heavy discount.
