Prospex 1970 Recreation SLA033

The SLA033 is a re-issue of a watch worn by Martin Sheen in the classic movie Apocalypse Now.  Sheen's role in the film? Captain Willard. The new Prospex SLA033 re-creation of this 1970 diver’s watch is slightly larger than the original but faithful in every other respect to its design. It is, however, completely up-to-date in its technology. It incorporates caliber 8L35 which was specially designed for use in diver’s watches. The case has a super-hard coating and a dual-curved sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating and is 200 meter water resistant. The upper surface of the bezel rim is Zaratsu polished to a perfect mirror finish. Presented on a high strength silicone strap, this Prospex timepiece is assembled by hand in the Shizukuishi Watch Studio in northern Japan. The movement is a Grand Seiko movement, the 8L35.  The SLA033 is offered as a limited edition of just 2,500 worldwide and only 250 is believed to be available in the United States.
