Default Seiko's latest Monsters

You guys may have already seen Seiko's latest Monsters. But
just in case, here is a little information, along with pictures.

The latest models have 42.3mm stainless steel cases, 200 meter
water resistance, classic looking bezels, and eye-catching sunburst
orange, frosted white, black, and blue dials with Lumibrite hands,
and markers, Seiko 6R15, and cool bracelets, or rubber straps.

Have a look...

Oh yes and the monsters keep getting better. Loving the addition of the cyclops, great for my aging eyes.
That Orange Monster is stunning.
Cheers AT.

They almost have a limited edition feel to them don't they guys?!!
Between the stunning dials, and then new movements it's kind of
like the watches have been supercharged, and are reaching new
heights for the Monster.

Really like the orange too Gary, and how it's not only the perfect
orange, but then gets the sunray treatment ! ..The cyclops is a neat
addition also like you said sir. ..Oh, and Art, yup looks like all of
the prices are slowly working their way upwards. Guess the new
movement is a big part like you pointed out. It's one of those
double edged sword situations it seems like.

Thanks a lot just for your two cents you guys !

Always been a Monster fan, but those warts on the crystal have got to go.

Good one sir. ..It's funny how that can be either a big
positive, or a big negative David. ..Honestly, think they should
have both with, and without models for people to choose between.

I have never really taken to the monsters but that's my problem. Until now, I wouldn't mind seeing one of these in person.

Find these rather appealing but ironically don't own one. Concur with David on the cyclopse (warts).

I wonder could you, with a hair dryer and thin plastic spatula, or fingernail, pry that lump off...

It's most likely doable. I'd most likely opt for a replacement crystal without that lump
