Available on US military bases PX/BX AND R&R LOCATIONS, the early Seiko Divers, particular the 6105, were Popular with US soldiers in Vietnam. The 6105 would become a combat watch long before 1979 when Martin Sheen, as Captain Willard in Apocalypse Now, wearing a 6105-8110 while traversing the NAM into CAMBODIA AND ITS HIGHLANDS in search of the Off The Reservation Rogue Colonel Kurt (Marlon Brando) and his Montagnard Army who were wreaking havoc on the Viet Cong [Vietnamese Communist Forces].
The Snake-Eaters and the Yards
The 6105-8000 was introduced in 1968. but the 6105 8110/8119 were made from 1970-1977, and were first delivered with the words water proof as in: water 150m proof on the dial, and waterproof on the case back. But a US ban on using the words WATERPROOF on watches meant SEIKO would alter the words to water 150m resist with water resistant on the back later in the same year.This adds to value. Many early seiko watches carried the waterproof info, finding these, specifically the early 8119.. well, that is a cause for definite premium over the resist/resist models.
