We all know that everyone’ favorite astromech, R2-D2, has come in all sorts of shapes and sizes to date in terms of Star Wars merchandise, lining up George Lucas’ pockets with more than enough dough to last him several generations down the line. Well, the latest iteration of R2-D2 comes in a pocket-sized form factor, that is, the $42 Star Wars Remote Control R2-D2 Whizz Watch.

It is time for some R2-D2 o’clock goodness, where the blue and white digital watch will be able to tell you the current time, but it also secretly doubles up as a remote control. Each watch will feature its very own R2-D2 unit that can be detached, allowing you to use the watch to control him around. R2-D2 will whizz with gusto forwards and backwards, although he does seem to lack a pair of boosters here, so forget about letting him cross chasms from one desk to another via a short flight. Good thing it comes with batteries right out of the box to get you started immediately.
