Another great Watchismo find.

If you’re asking yourself, what was that cool-ass watch Lieutenant Ripley wore in the 1986 movie Aliens, I have the answer for you. It was a Giugiaro designed Seiko Speedmaster Chronograph. Entirely unique by its vertical stopwatch pushers placed inside the asymmetrical case extension. Many of Giugiaro’s other designs for Seiko between 1985-86 had asymmetric qualities and are shown below.

  1. ha… thats funny.

    John, did you actually notice this on your own? or did you see it somewhere else and post it? In either way, I think its pretty cool. I did not know that Seiko’s came with this time watches.

    I was checking watch websites and ran to something similar to this Seiko but instead, its a Casio Protrek.

    Check it out:

    You havent posted in a while… it would be cool if you did more often.
