Prospex "Arnie" Watch

Look at stills from 1980s Schwarzenegger movies and you’ll notice his tough-looking watch (OK, the first thing you notice are his muscles, the watch comes second). What you’re looking at is the Seiko 1982 Hybrid Diver’s Watch—the one watch up to the challenges of predatory extraterrestrials and heavily armed rescue missions. Seiko’s reissue, the Prospex “Arnie” Watch keeps all the style, doubles down on the toughness, and updates the tech with solar charging. This won’t let you down when it’s time to get to the choppa.
