This 1970 Diver’s modern reinterpretation timepiece was named ‘Captain Willard’ by fans for Martin Sheen’s character who wore it in the ‘Apocalypse Now’ movie. The original 1970 Diver’s timepiece was worn by Japanese explorer Naomi Uemura, the first man in the world to climb the highest peaks of each five continents – wearing a Seiko diving watch whilst he did it. This 2021 version comes with calibre 6R35 and its long lasting 70 hour power reserve. The crown at 4 o’clock position for comfort and practicality is protected by the wide flowing case design around it, creating its signature look. It is accompanied by Seiko's first ever original nylon strap for diver's watches – the 'SEICHU,'' made in Japan, designed for flexibility and durability. Prospex is a combination of the words 'Professional' and 'Specifications.' Seiko Prospex timepieces are designed to be practical, reliable and durable; to meet the high standards required in extreme environments for sports lovers and adventure seekers alike. The Seiko SPB237J1 Prospex watch combines a 42.7mm round shaped super hard coated stainless steel case and comes with two interchangeable NATO straps in brown and grey polyester. It has a grey analogue dial with Lumibrite coated hands, indexes and bezel, in addition to a date display, all of which is protected beneath scratch resistant curved sapphire crystal glass with an anti-reflective coating on the inside. Power is generated by the Calibre 6R35 automatic movement with 24 jewels and a 70 hour power reserve. This model also has a water resistance of up to 200 metres and weighs 106 grams.
