One day you wake up, make coffee, think you’re huge star wars fan, and rock your world. For example, io9 is full of writers and readers who are wild in regards to star warsbut do any of us know someone who could throw $120,000 on a star wars Look?

A company called Studio Kross hope there are at least 10 of these people there. He created a super high-end, super limited-edition watch inspired by Boba Fett and the recently renamed Boba Fett’s Ship. Consisting of 220 pieces, one of which is a unique, handmade mini-replica of Boba Fett’s Starship which takes 90 hours to make (each!), watch has to be seen to be believed. So here are some pictures.

Skip to Studio Kross site for even more images and information. Like, for example, for your $120,000 you also get an amazing and detailed replica of Boba Fett’s Starship to store the watch. ‘Cause let’s face it, anyone can afford to spend $120,000 on a watch is not going to be to wear it everything the weather, because they almost certainly have other ridiculously expensive watches to choose from.

I’m going to step back for a moment. I like to think that I am a star wars fan. I am also a star wars fan who passed obscene sums of money on very stupidvery useless collectibles and other elements. Price aside, I thought, is this a watch I would buy? Because I have star wars watches. I wear star wars watches. Would I buy and wear this star wars to see if money was not an issue?

Honestly, I don’t think so. It is beautiful, no doubt. And I love the visual language surrounding Boba Fett and his ship. (You know that one.) But above all, it screams star wars too loudly. In terms of high-end pieces (and that’s another level above) I’d prefer the item to ba little more subtle. Something you can wear with anything and not bring out your super nerdy side. It’s the opposite of that. Besides, even if money meant nothing, and it does, I would live in mortal fear of flapping my arms and smashing that little ship in the middle or scratching it. It is clear that it is well done but is it made well enough to survive a fall from my nightstand or accidentally to be hit versus a wall?

But then again, there are only 10. There are definitely 10 Boba Fett fans who can afford it. And if they’re around, I wish I had one that they offer me a drink so that I can watch their Look.
