    The Seiko 7A28-7009 in the 1986 movie Aliens

    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.

    Not really that clear of a shot, but a beautiful moment when Ripley leaves Hicks. "Don't be gone long, Ellen".

    Just kidding.

    Some other watches from the movie.

    The standard issue marine watch worn by most Marines:

    I'm curious about the Seiko, what's the push button for?

    That's the "nuke em from orbit" button. Only way to be sure.

    I'd say, if the future marines actually wore those watches, then those watches must have aged quite a lot. Could be worth a lot more than a kidney...
