    If this is not known as the "Darth Vader", somebody has never seen Star Wars

    Yes this is a PVD coated titanium Hublot MP-02 Key of Time Tourbillon with a limited edition of 50 pieces and retailed for $350,000. It has a speed of time flow function and PR. If you’re concerned about “investment” and value retention this is not the one for you

    Shouldn't any watch that costs more than $1,000, in an age when everybody is already carrying a small computer around in their pocket, have to pass some sort of aesthetic test?
    This is an ugly timepiece.

    Actually there is a Darth Vader watch, 250 pieces of a black titanium ProDiver GMT by Oris, officially licensed LucasFilm, Ltd product. (Comes with a companion Storm Trooper watch). They came out last year prior to the movie release.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Lots of watches I consider ugly that others may like. If some company makes a watch you don’t like and won’t ever buy, I guess it works out okay in the end...

    Looks like Hublot got bored of copying AP and is now imitating Uhrwerk instead.
