Happy Star Wars Day - GSX Smart Style #35 - C-3PO

Happy Star Wars Day to all my readers! May the Fourth be with you :)

To mark the occasion, I had to wear a Star Wars themed watch today, and so chose this one by the Japanese company GSX.

The GSX brand are well known for their collaborations with various products and films, and as part of that, they produced a line of limited edition Star Wars watches for the 30th anniversary in 2007. The release was limited to 300 watches per design.

This one is #35 in the SmartStyle range and is the C-3PO model (-I've covered the Darth Vader version previously).

The SmartStyle range are the main range for the limited edition collaborations, and are big, bright dial watches. They are a 3-hand dial watch, with three small dials at the 6, 9, and 12 o'clock positions. The small dials are for the stopwatch and cover the seconds (bottom), minutes (middle), and two seconds (top).

The character C-3PO is one of the few characters to appear in all 6 Star Wars films, and is a protocol droid to help with meetings, and he is fluent in "over 6 million forms of communication". For the watch design, the face of the watch looks like C-3PO's torso, complete with the wires across his waist. On the top end of the strap is his face (giving him a very long neck! ).
