Watchmakers Seiko are to reissue the iconic Seiko X Giugiaro 7A28-7000 watch worn by Ripley in Aliens.

The company are to release two limited edition versions of the watch, the Seiko Spirit Smart SCED035 and the SCED037, in honor of the original 1983 Seiko 7A28-7000. 

The watch is likely to be the most famous Seiko in existence and was the first to have been designed for the company by Italian car designer Giorgetto Giugiaroto.

Die hard Aliens fans might notice that the new versions of the watch aren't exact replicas. They are missing the crown and extra button on the left side of its case which gives the watches a more contemporary look and helps Seiko differentiate the replica's from the original.

The main difference between the two is the price. Original Seiko X Giugiaro watches can retail for up to $1000 these days whereas the re-issues will sell for  just $365 and $410.
