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

The Snake-Eaters and the Yards
The Vietnamese tribesmen who fought alongside American Special Forces won the Green
Berets admirationand lost everything else. The indigenous Montagnards,
recruited into service by the American Special Forces in Vietnams mountain
highlands, defended villages against the Viet Cong and served as rapid response forces.
The Special Forces and the Montagnardseach tough, versatile, and accustomed to

The 6105-8000 was introduced in 1968. but the
6105 8110/8119 were made from 1970-1977, and were first delivered with the words

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
