Marc Ecko and Timex team up for Star Wars watches

First published: 21-10-2009

A new set of Marc Ecko watches is likely to hit stores before the end of the year after it was announced that he is teaming up with Timex to create some timepieces for fans of a major film series.

Marc Ecko watches will, in effect, follow in the footsteps of other offerings from the company, most notably the line of hoodies which the company produced under the Star Wars licence earlier this year.

Several designs were previewed on Marc Ecko's blog during the summer with plans to release the unique offerings around the Christmas period, including striking designs revolving around characters including Boba Fett and Stormtroopers.

The materials range from rubber to metal and could incorporate Timex's Indiglo technology, making it easy to use the watch if the winter conditions make it impossible to see the dial.

Last month, Marc Ecko released a hoodie themed on the Halo game series for Xbox, which incorporated a pattern seen on the leading protagonist the Master Chief.
