The 1980s were filled with all kinds of things we like to call back to this day. There were plenty of great inventions during that decade that we look back on fondly now, but one of the most influential it turns out was the Seiko 1982 Hybrid Diver watch that could be seen on Arnold Schwarzenegger’s wrist in both Commando (1985) and Predator (1987). This particular watch was particularly influential because it was the first hybrid diver watch that combined both analog and digital elements. There’s no denying it was a great watch, but the modern re-issue from Seiko is even better than the original. Available in three different options with slightly different colorways (SNJ025 / SNJ027 / SNJ028), the new version has all the intrigue of the analog/digital combination of the original with a solar-powered design that can run for up to six months on a single charge.
