I'm not a Seiko expert, first time I've seen this model.

I have no idea of the value and the listing seems odd.

There were a number of special edition Seiko Monsters, including the Snow Monster you posted, along with red and green varieties. All limited runs that fetch a nice premium over your standard ~$200 last generation monster.

The problem being that there are also a lot of modified standard Monsters made to look like these special editions as well, so you need to research what you are getting into.

Very nice Balad ! The limited edition Monsters are so cool, and always

seem to disappear very fast too. Would love to get one some day of one

of the varieties that have been, or might still be made.

Not the the "neo-monster's" aren't any good, but they just aren't quite the same.

Non-screw down crown at 3 o'clock was always a deal breaker for me on the neo-Monster
