THE 1970 DIVER’S MODERN RE-INTERPRETATION SPB183J1
55th-anniversary collection – ref. SPB183J1 – is based on the very cool re-interpretation of the ‘ Captain Willard ’ watch
Based on the Seiko 6105, the so-called Turtle. This watch was worn by Naomi Uemura, a famous Japanese explorer, during most of his exploits; reaching the North Pole alone, being the first to descend the Amazon river in a boat… and more. But it is mostly known because it appeared on the wrist of Captain Willard (portrayed by Martin Sheen) in the cult movie Apocalypse Now.
