SEIKO PROSPEX BLACK SERIES LIMITED EDITION - SPB257J1
Pickup currently unavailable
SEIKO PROSPEX BLACK SERIES LIMITED TO 5,500 PIECES
The Seiko Prospex Black Series L.E. SPB257J1. This is a direct descendent of the Seiko 6105-8110, which was made famous by being worn in the legendary movie Apocalypse Now, and by US soldiers in the Vietnam war. It was a rugged, reliable choice in combat, and has since served as inspiration for quite a few editions, nicknamed Captain Willard in the process.
The stainless steel case, coated in black of course, measures 42.7mm by 13.2mm. This sounds like a rather large watch but the integrated short lugs keep it very wearable. Unlike the other two, the crown is protected by the extended caseband from 3 to 5 o’clock. In terms of colours, movement and straps nothing changes between the three. So, again the Seiko 6R35 automatic movement, a brown textile strap and a black rubber one. The SPB257J1 is again limited to 5,500 pieces.
