Seiko Is Reviving Its ‘Captain Willard’ Dive Watch From ‘Apocalypse Now’

From James Bond’s Omegas to the Alsta Nautoscaph from Jaws, there are a lot of watches that have had their popularity and desirability boosted by appearing in a blockbuster flick. Some movies even feature multiple timepieces that go on to achieve legendary status. Francis Ford Coppola’s Apocalypse Now is one such film, and now Seiko is reviving the Martin Sheen-worn ‘Captain Willard’ diver for the modern era.

This isn’t actually the first time this particular Seiko watch has been revived, as there was a limited-run called the SLA033 released previously. This time is different, however, as the release actually includes two unique versions — the SPB151 and SPB153 — and neither are limited-edition. Instead, these divers are to be permanent additions to the brand’s Prospex lineup. They both feature Seiko’s caliber 6R35 automatic movement, stainless steel cases with bi-directional dive timer bezels, domed anti-reflective crystals, and water-resistance to 200m. The only real difference: one is black-on-steel with a link band (like the one from the movie) and the other features an OD green dial and bezel with a black silicone strap. They’re priced at $1,300 and $1,100, respectively.

Purchase: $1,100+
