For those of you who are big fans of James Cameron's Aliens, you will have a chance to own the watch that Sigourney Weever's Ripley wore in the movie. That watch is the Seiko Giugiaro 7A28-7000, and Seiko will be reissuing it for a limited run.

The design of the watch was a perfect fit for the 1986 movie, which is obviously why Cameron picked it. The watch was first released in 1983, and the design came from car designer Giorgetto Giugiaroto. It has a unique look that features a distinctive panel with large chronograph buttons on one side.

After the movie came out, fans wanted to get their hands on the watch. Up until now, you could get one on eBay, but it's not cheap. I've seen them go for about a grand. But the reissue of the watch will only cost you $260-$290, which is a bit more reasonable. 
Seiko will release two versions of the classic watch: the Seiko Spirit Smart SCED037 (black version) and the SCED035 (grey version)

According toGizmodo:

The most notable difference between the original 7A28-7000 and the new SCED035 (the gray model) is that it’s missing the crown and extra button on the left side of its case. It gives the watch a slightly sleeker look, and helps Seiko differentiate the re-issue from the original.
[Jim: Damn, that's a shame the re-issue will be different than the one seen in 'Aliens', albeit slightly]

I also need those re-issued Reeboks:
