This is a limited edition SLA033 from 2020. Not to be confused with the SPB151 I have shown earlier - which actually is a watch model Seiko introduced later than the SLA033. This might sound like jibberish to most of you but there is a difference. And if they are looking outdated it is true. The original was made between circa 1968 and 1977. It is often called a "Captain Willard" after that character in Apocalypse Now. It ought to be called a Naomi Uemura. He was a real (not a film character) adventurer from Japan who spent 18 months covering 12000 kilometers on a one man dog sledge trip from Greenland to Alaska. He used a 6105 Seiko... And he did not have a warm trailer with assistants between the film takes.

Both the SLA033 and the later SPB151 are somewhat true re-makes of the legendary Seiko 6105.

This is my SLA033 (a 4-4.5K (edited sum - I totally lost it at the conversion to USD) USD watch - when new) a limited edition. The lume is "active" in the picture and makes the indexes look green.



And I got the SPB151 also... (1.2-1.5k (also edited) USD new )



And the original 6105, a former watch of mine (I believe they were about 100 US in the 1970ies)



I like them all.

Played around with a new band, bezel and crystal caseback for my cheapo Vostok Komandirskie:



For reference, here is the "before":


These are fun watches to play around with modding. Super cheap and easy too.

Another Vostok.
This one is an Amphibian "Zisssou", lightly modded with a Submariner style bezel and display caseback

My comeback in this thread is manifested thru this vintage Cartier Pasha. Bought it a month ago as a Christmas gift for my wife but if it is not to her liking I have no problem keeping it for myself...
