You Can Own Ripley’s Seiko Watch From ‘Aliens’!

James Cameron’s 1986 Aliens is the best action-horror movie ever made. And part of its charm are the realistic products hidden like easter eggs throughout.

Her Reebok “Alien Stompers” were sold in limited quantities back in 1987, and have since been reissued, and even custom made by various shoe artists.

While you’ll need to break the bank to get your hands on those, there’s a new opportunity that’s just presented itself.

Seiko is reissuing its Giugiaro 7A28-7000 watch, most famous for being on Sigourney Weaver’s wrist for much of the running time of Aliens, reports The Verge. The original watch was conceived by Italian car designer Giorgetto Giugiaro in the early 1980s, and is known for its blocky panel that houses chunky chronograph buttons to the right of the watch face. It was also the world’s first watch to use an analog quartz chronograph movement.

The new “Seiko X Giugiaro Spirit Smart” reissues aren’t quite identical to the 7A28-7000, adds the site; there’s no crown or extra button on the left side.

The grey SCED035 and black SCED037 watches are limited to 3,000 pieces each, and will cost ¥32,000 (about $260) and ¥36,000 ($292) respectively.
