Each of the new Star Wars-inspired Citizen watches features the Star Wars logo and is packaged in a limited-edition box.
New York—Star Wars Day celebrations were in full force Tuesday, May 4, and Citizen is keeping the party going with the launch of its new collection.
 
The watch company is introducing the “Ana-Digi Star Wars” collection in honor of the iconic movie franchise.
 
The Ana-Digi temp model, first introduced in the 1980s, blends analog and digital components, featuring a dual time feature, an alarm, digital time, the temperature and themed sub dials for each Star Wars character.
 
A popular model in Japan, it was reissued most recently in 2018 as part of a collaboration with Japanese fashion retailer Beams.
 
The rectangular, retro-looking watches are ideal for collectors and die-hard fans, incorporating intricate details that a casual viewer may miss.

The vintage-inspired watches are a nod to the original trilogy and feature authentic style elements from the films.
 
The collection will include six models overall, with the first two now available.
