Seiko Prospex 1970 Diver’s Re-Edition Limited Edition SLA033

Mint and new looking condition Seiko Prospex re-edition of one of Seiko’s most recognisable dive watch icons is the original Seiko 6105-8110/9 “Captain Willard” that was worn by Martin Sheen in the 1979 epic film Apocolapyse Now. It is slightly larger at 45 mm and depth rating increased from 150 m to 200 m. Like the original, the watch’s screw-down crown is located at 4 o’clock and is protected by a large crown guard that almost covers the crown. The bezel is Seiko’s famous Zaratsu polish to reach the ideal amount of mirror finish. The case has a super-hard coating and a dual curved sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating. The movement has, of course, been upgraded since the original model as well. Seiko fans may recognize the 8L35 automatic caliber as the movement ticking inside many of their favorite contemporary Seiko divers. It offers robust and reliable performance with a 50-hour power reserve and frequency of 28,800 vph. The 1970 Diver’s Re-Creation Limited Edition SLA033 is hand-assembled in Seiko fully-integrated Shizukuishi Watch Studio in northern Japan where the watchmaking giant produces most of its Grand Seiko releases. It’s limited to 2,500 total pieces. Comes complete with box and papers, originally purchased in 2019.
