Being a big fan of the Aliens (1986) movie by James Cameron - and the famous Seiko Chronograph Sports 100 7A28-7009 in it - I thought I'd share a couple of images from a classic movie with a classic watch.
The watch a unique and very rare Seiko, also referred to as the Aliens Seiko, because Lt. Ripley (played by Sigourney Weaver) wears it in the movie. The watch is a Cronograph Sport 100 designed by Giorgio Giugiaro. The director James Cameron chose the watch for Sigourney because of its futuristic feel, and the watch is prominently displayed in many scenes of the movie. She wears it in the silver version.
The first scene where Ripley is seen wearing the watch is when she adresses the colonial marines. She doesn't have it on out of hypersleep, so it's probably issued to her on the Sulaco.
I won't bother you with all shots of her and the watch, because she wears it in most the scenes. Just the best shots ...
Ripley locates Newt and calms her. The first clear shot of the watch.
"I'm gonna make sure they nail you right to the wall for this."
"That's the grenade launcher. You don't wanna mess with that".
Ripley slaps in the ammo mag.
The facehuggers attach Ripley and Newt when they wake up in the infirmary.
"That can't be - that's inside the room."
Ripley looks at the scanner while Hicks cuts through the floor.
Ripley pushes the floor down, but Newt is gone.
Not really that clear of a shot, but a beautiful moment when Ripley leaves Hicks. "Don't be gone long, Ellen".
The "torture bracelet" is clearly visible when she loads M40 grenades into the pulse rifle grenade launcher.
Ripley puts flares in her pockets.
A clear view of the watch when Ripley find the Newt transmitter. Without Newt.
Ripley blasts the queen eggs.
"Close your eyes, baby".
Ripley climbs the ladder after the Alien has let go of her foot in the outer door chamber.
In the final push for closing the outer bay door, the slimness of the watch clearly shows.
In this extra feature, the alien is clearly seen wearing the watch.
Some other watches from the movie.

The mysterious Bishop watch - sure there is another scene with a better view?
