The slippery slope

It is easy to identify where all this started. A rash Ebay purchase landed a Seiko 6105-8110 diver’s watch from November 1976. The Seiko 6105-811x divers watches are perhaps the most desirable of the middle market Seiko automatic divers, partly because of the beautiful case design, partly because they are considerably thinner on the ground than the 6309 that followed but also because they were built without obvious compromise when it came to component quality. This particular model is the second version of the second generation of 150m Seiko diver’s watches (the preceding models being the 6217-8000 sometimes refered to as the 62mas and the 6105-8000, a smaller cased version of the watch described here). One claim to fame of the 8110 and a key reason for its iconic status derives from its appearance on the wrist of Martin Sheen in Apocalypse Now.
