Seiko Prospex 1970 Diver Limited Edition

The Seiko Prospex 1970 Diver Limited Edition is a modern version of the famous 1970 Diver’s Watch. Also known as the “Willard”, it was the model worn by Martin Sheen for his portrayal of Captain Willard in Apocalypse Now. Limited to only 2,500 pieces worldwide, it is a re-creation of the original using modern technology and materials.

Crown

The original 1970 model was unique in that the crown was protected by an extension of the case. Moved to the 4 o’clock position, it was a functional consideration that became a memorable design feature. The watch became popular amongst those who needed an exceptionally strong timepiece and was even worn by the Japanese adventurer, Naomi Uemura.

Case, Movement, Water Resistance

The 1970 Diver Limited Edition has the same flowing case shape as the original but at 45mm, is slightly larger. Additionally, a super-hard coating ensures it’s durability. Equipped with an automatic 8L35 calibre movement (created especially for use in diver’s watches), it has a power reserve of 50 hours. Furthermore, water resistant to 200m, it has a dual curved sapphire crystal with anti-reflective surface for maximum legibility.

With a unique serial number engraved on the caseback, the Seiko Prospex 1970 Diver is a heritage watch you will love to own. A two year warranty guarantees peace of mind.

    Having been disappointed by another larger company not having the advertised stock I called Suzie to confirm the watch was available. During the course of the day I went back and forth a few times with Suzie via email confirming bits and bobs. The watch then arrived the next day with everything perfect. Extremely happy, couldn’t recommend them more highly
