For those looking for something more affordable, the Japanese brand Citizen has created a collection of Star Wars in collaboration with Lucasfilm.

Black Venom Rolex Submariner Star Wars Limited Edition
Although it is known that Rolex produces limited quantities of its watches, the Swiss company has never released a special limited edition, much less in collaboration with another company. However, over the years we have seen the odd Rolex modified by other companies, such as the Black Venom Rolex Submariner Star Wars Limited Edition.
Diving or a walk in the sky? The Star Wars Rolex Submariner from Black Venom.
This watch is based on the Rolex Submariner ref. 116610 and has been customized by the Italian company Black Venom. The stainless steel case and bracelet feature a black DLC coating, and the famous characters from Star Wars they have replaced the indices normally found on the sphere. The inscription Submariner and the second hand are red to give a new look. The result is a stealth version of the Star Wars Submariner. While some might argue that it is blasphemous to modify a Rolex, others will love seeing this watch combine their favorite watch brand with the famed movie franchise. Black Venom still has three of the ten copies available to fans of Star Wars interested in acquiring one. The price of this Rolex Submariner modified in such a unique way, it is around € 18,000.
