My husband loves Star Wars, and Darth Vader in particular.  So, when I wanted to reconstruct another clock, I had a pretty good idea of what to do - his only request was that it should be black and white and "grungy".

Basically, this was a $5 wooden circle with clock mechanism, so it was pretty simple to alter.  I removed the hands (the mechanism wasn't removable), sanded, painted and stenciled, put the hands back on a voila!  One Darth Vader clock for Scott's Sith Space (I do love alliteration).

Sorry the picture is sideways, but I don't know how to rotate it.

This is a close up so you can see the gold detail I added to give it a bit more pizazz, also the hands are outlined in gold so you can see them better against the black of Darth Vader Smiley

Hope you like it!

This is ridiculously cool! I love the grungy look, makes it look like it survived a war or something. I love love love the way you did the numbers.

I love the District 9-esque font you used for the numbers. Its PERFECT.

Thanks Smiley 
The font I used was "Aurabesh", which (nerdily enough) is a free font version of "Aurebesh", a writing system used in the Star Wars verse to represent the basic language. 
I know, right?  Anyway, if you want to you can get "Aurabesh" from here: http://www.searchfreefonts.com/free/aurabesh.htm

So cool and so timely! My son watched Star Wars for the first time today so he was pretending to be Darth Vader or R2D2 all day.

That rocks! I need a clock like that for my room because the old one broke.
