CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY AND APPRAISAL1 YEAR MECHANICAL WARRANTY
The 6105-8110 is probably Seiko's most iconic dive watch, and that's saying a lot coming from a company with such a strong dive history. This was the first Seiko to use an asymmetrical case with integrated crown guards, a design that can still be found today in Seiko's modern lineup. It's unique curved shape means that even at 44mm it sits comfortably on the wrist.
This particular 6105 is in spectacular condition. The dial is mint and most importantly all original. The proprietary Seiko lume has aged to a beautiful creamy white colour, and shows none of the degradation common on vintage Seiko. The unique sweep seconds hand adds a nice dash of colour. The case retains most of its original finish while the bi-directional bezel still presents its deep black colouring and clicks satisfyingly when turned. The original "turn and lock" crown doesn't lock anymore, as is common with most models that use this system.
This reference is of course most famous for being seen on the wrist of Martin Sheen's character Captain Willard in Francis Coppola's 1979 film Apocalypse Now. Fittingly, this 6105 comes with an Uncle Seiko "chocolate bar" rubber strap, the same style strap worn by Sheen's character throughout the film.
Overall this is a fine, highly collectible Seiko in striking, original condition.
