1972 Seiko 6105-8119 150m Sport Diver "Capt. Willard"

1972 Seiko 6105-8119 150m Sport Diver "Capt. Willard"


Few Seiko Divers are as sought after as the 6105-8110/9. Whether its due to a cameo appearance in the film 'Apocalypse Now,' where it sits prominently on the wrist of Capt. Willard, played by Martin Sheen, or for the fact that there are so many modern interpretations and homages to this historic timepiece, there's no denying that, simply put, it is an icon. Whatever the motivation, owning an original example is in most circumstances, easier said than done. That's why we're proud to offer this absolutely stunning example from August of 1972. Other than a replacement crystal and strap, it's completely original, and unbelievably well preserved. The matte black dial is perfect, and the original luminous material is a bright white with no visible degradation. The polished baton hands are just as impressive with perfect lume, and a bright pink dot gracing the tip of the "stop light" sweep seconds. The original bezel insert is nearly flawless with no marring or missing paint, and the pip at zero has the perfect touch of patina behind the acrylic lens. The case is unpolished with the factory finishes still clearly visible, and the bezel rotates cleanly in both directions with a satisfying "click." The hacking 6105B is keeping near perfect time post service, and is ready for many more years of dependable wear. If you've been waiting for the right opportunity to own this storied Seiko.... This. Is. It.
