More about Seiko:
The first Seiko Prospex, shorthand for “professional specifications”, was introduced in 1962 with the release of the Seiko 150M Diver 62MAS. Another famous Prospex is the 6105-8110, known as the “Captain Willard”, named after Martin Sheen’s character in Apocalypse Now.
The present watch, the SPB153, is a reincarnation of this watch, the “Captain Willard.”
