A rare opportunity to acquire one of the most iconic movie watches ever, in all original condition! This is the same model to feature in no less than 5 of Arnold Schwarzenegger's films, including 'Commando' (1985) & 'Predator' (1987). The H558-5000 was worn by Schwarzenegger, and is now commonly referred to as the 'Arnie' because of the on screen wrist time. Not only was this an Arnie watch, the model was also worn briefly by James Bond (Roger Moore) in the 1985 film 'For Your Eyes Only'. The Seiko H558-5000/9 was a world first for Seiko, being the first ever 150m hybrid diver with alarm and chronograph functions.
This particular example is in excellent condition with little signs of use. The watch retains all of its original parts (including the rare original shroud) and has just benefited from a full case strip down, clean, a new battery and new gaskets fitted all round. All functions operate as they should and is ready to slot straight in to your collection.
A definite must for collectors of vintage Seiko, Arnold Schwarzenegger, James Bond and movie watches!
