Description

Seiko Prospex ‘Captain Willard’ Automatic Black Dial Stainless Steel Bracelet Mens Watch SPB151J1

This watch has been displayed within it’s gift box. All tags and stickers are intact. IMMACULATE & PRISTINE CONDITION. Full manufacturer’s warranty.

The Case:

The Seiko Prospex ‘Captain Willard’ SPB183J1 is a reinterpretation of the watch worn by Martin Sheen’s character. Captain Willard, in Francis Ford Coppola’s 1979 Vietnam War epic, Apocalypse Now. The case measures 42.7mm in width, which is somewhat slimmer than the original model which measured at 44mm. The reduction in size of this model makes it feel more authentic and in line with the sizing trends of the mid-seventies. The original model was made famous by the unique asymmetrical tonneau style case and crown positioned in at 4 o’clock.

The brushed stainless steel case has been finished with super hard coating, which provides the watch with unparalleled durability and scratch resistance. A black unidirectional bezel sits on top of the case, it displays a 60-minute scale and it features knurled edges that allow the wearer to easily rotate it. The sapphire crystal embedded in the case provides the watch with superlative scratch resistance. The glass has been treated an anti-reflective coating, which permits for optimum readability. On the back of the case, there is a screw down case back which provides greater protection against water.

The Dial:

The black dial employs a simplistic layout which ensures the dial can be easily read. It consists of deeply applied baton-style hour markers that have been polished and filled with a luminescent material, which allows the dial to be read in the dark. A beveled baton-shaped hands occupies the centre of the dial, it has also been filled with LumiBrite material. The design of the dial continues to pays homage to the original Seiko 6105 through the adoption of the distinctive ‘traffic light’ style second hand. A date display window replaces the 3 o’clock marker imitating the classic design of the original.

The Strap:

The bracelet is made from stainless steel and comes fashioned in a classic three-link oyster style. The simplistic design of the oyster bracelet was was first introduced by Rolex in 1948 and it has since enjoyed a close association with an array of dive watches, this is due to their utilitarian character that ensures functionality. The bracelet fastens using a three fold clasp with a secure lock, to ensure it remains upon the wearer’s wrist.

The Functions:

Seiko’s 6R35 caliber automatic movement powers this timepiece, providing the watch with a 70 hour power reserve and an accuracy of +25 to -15 seconds per day. The high performance calibre movement also offers a hacking feature so that the time can be set precisely. Although the movement is automatic it also features a hand winding mechanism, which gives the wearer the option of powering the watch themselves. The watch has a water resistance of 200 metres.

Free Strap Adjustment

It's important that your watch fits your wrist comfortably and looks great at the same time.

Leather strap watches tend to fit without a problem for most wearers. However, watches fitted with metal bracelets often need adjusting to get the perfect fit.

This is generally a very simple procedure. We can do this for you, or you can get the watch adjusted locally.

Option 1. Specify your wrist measurement and we will adjust it before being sent

When purchasing a watch which has a metal bracelet with adjustable links, we will gladly adjust the watch bracelet to fit your wrist before sending the watch to you - free of charge!

Simply type your wrist measurement (in inches or centimetres) into the bracelet size section of the checkout and we will ensure the watch bracelet is adjusted accordingly before being sent to you. We will include all the surplus links, with the watch.

How to measure your wrist

You can measure your wrist with a piece of string which you can measure against a ruler:

You should allow about half a centimetre (1/4 inch) of slack to prevent it being too tight on your wrist.

In the event of you needing an extra-long wrist bracelet, which requires an extension to the original watch, we must obtain extra links from the manufacturer, and in this event, we will contact you to inform you of any possible delays or applicable charges.

Watches with bracelets adjusted by WatchNation are still eligible under our refund policy.

Option 2. Buy the watch online from WatchNation and have it adjusted locally

If you wish, you can have it adjusted locally by another jeweller or key cutter. However, you will have to cover the cost of this option yourself.
