This Seiko Giugiaro ‘Aliens Ripley’replica watch was in as good condition as one could hope, but it was still an over-30-year-old watch. The design is fantastic, and Seiko, along with Giugiaro, did an excellent job of fully encapsulating the futuristic theme of the era that was industrial, blocky, and verging on dystopian. It feels like an evolution in ergonomics and functionality meant for a stylized industrial environment versus anything else. The design of the Seiko Giugiaro ‘Aliens Ripley’replica watch was probably closely connected to the idea in the late 1970s and early 1980s with the then-popular science fiction that many people believed the future meant living on massive spacecrafts or space stations far away from earth, and that most people’s jobs would be in maintaining or running such engineering feats.
Weaver’s Ripley character lives in just such a fantasy science fiction world with the added military component, so this Seiko Giugiaro ‘Aliens Ripley’replica watch gets a macho as well as utilitarian side to its personality. I was actually pretty sure that it was only a matter of time before Seiko replica watch released a limited edition reissue because not only have they been doing just that, but recently, they debuted the first limited edition “Seiko X Giugiaro Design”replica watch collection honoring the Seiko “Bishop”watch.
The new Seiko X Giugiaro Spirit Smart “Ripley Reissue”replica watch lack the extra pusher and crown on the left of the case, as the crown is likely hidden under the lug structure. This gives the Seiko swiss replica watches(omega replica watches) cases a cleaner look, but it is hard not to want the watches to be the exact same as the original 1983 models that ended up in Aliens. The case for these new watches is coated steel in either the matte gray or the matte black and is water resistant to 100 meters.
This Seiko X Giugiaro Spirit Smart replica watch is 41.8mm tall and 42.2mm wide. It doesn’t look that square, does it? Thickness is 10.8mm, and the original was rather light as well. I love the bracelet design and other little design details such as the “happy face” section of the dial for the subsidiary dials and super cool design of the orange hands with the black line running through them. Colors are just spot-on “cool sports car” for the era – which made sense because Giugiaro was mostly a car designer.
