The new Seiko SLA033 is one of the most anticipated and most watched works at the Basel 2012 exhibition. It is undeniable that Seiko’s dive timepieces in all price ranges are more memorable than other brands. This is not achieved through well-planned marketing methods, but a good word of mouth. The result of casting. Inspired by another famous diving watch in history, Seiko launched the 1970 diving watch replica watches SLA033.
This watch has earned a good reputation among the troops for its sturdy and durable quality, and even became one of the soldiers’ favorite. In the entire movie, the watch was worn on Captain Willard’s wrist, which became a symbol. Dramatically, however, in the first two years of the film’s global release, in 1977, 6105 was discontinued. With the re-enactment of the film in 2001, the call for re-enactment of this fake watches has begun to grow, and Seiko has never let their fans down.
Like the previously launched Prospex Diver 300m Hi-beat SLA025, Seiko is also faithful to the original design for this watch, without the logo of Prospex. Its case size has reached 45mm and the thickness is 13mm. The polished fake watch case with a polished and satin brushed finish has a “super hard” coating and the double-sided curved sapphire crystal is treated with an anti-reflective coating.
The watch is water resistant to 200 meters and is equipped with a screw-in crown. By the way, the “Lock” logo on the 6105 watch is retained on its crown. The top of the bezel has been polished with the Zaratsu process, allowing it to be fine and sharp at any angle.
It is equipped with a Cal.8L35 self-winding movement with a vibration frequency of 28800 vph, which provides a 50-hour power reserve. This is a very controversial movement because Seiko stated that its daily error rate is -10/+15 seconds. Many watch owners said that their watches work well and meet the specifications of the astronomical clock, but some watch friends said that their watches are barely in line with the brand’s stated standards.
The new Seiko SLA033 is limited to 2,500 pieces, and the brand is equipped with a high-strength silicone strap.
