Seiko Resurrects Schwarzenegger’s Dive Watch From ‘Predator’

When it comes to the best movie watches, James Bond pops up quite often, but there’s not enough love given to timepieces worn by Arnold Schwarzenegger in classic ‘80s action movies. But with the brawny Seiko Prospex Solar Diver SNJ028, we get the resurrection of a watch model Schwarzenegger used in one of the best action movies of all time: Predator.

The SNJ028 dive watch is beefier than the 1982 original “Arnie” model with a 47.8mm case and has a solar-charged Seiko H851 quartz movement for timing your attacks with precision. It’s water-resistant up to 200 meters and features LumiBrite hands and markers for when things get muddy. Additionally, the bold timepiece has both analog and digital displays, a one-way rotating elapsed timing bezel, and meets ISO standards, making it appropriate for scuba diving. And once it’s fully charged, it has a 6-month power reserve. We won’t blame you for yelling out, “Get to da choppa!” once you have it strapped to your wrist. You can get the rugged timepiece exclusively from Seiko USA for $550.

Purchase: $550
