Since the Tokyo Olympic Games in 1964, Seiko has proudly assisted international sport

The PROSPEX “Captain Willard” is a 1970 Re-Interpretation Limited Edition watch marking the 55th anniversary of Japan’s very first diving watch created by Seiko.
This watch is a modern reinterpretation of the Seiko 1970 diver’s watch, nicknamed ‘Captain Willard’ by Seiko fans.
The original was popular with American troops in the 1970s, famously worn in ‘Apocalypse Now’ by Martin Sheen, playing the character Captain Willard and it was the first Seiko ‘turtle’.
