Default Final decision has been made...Monster time!

I have been in quandary over what consolation prize watch to get for not getting the Omega Seamaster 300 2018.

Davosa Argonautic?

Armand Nicolet Batman GMT

Mido Sea Star Captain V?

Seiko Green Monster V3?

And the winner is? The Green Monster, every time I looked at a photo of it or a Youtube video, it just pulled me in.

Besides my wife and I and some other friends are going for a three day trip to Casino Del Sol in Tucson, for some golf and slots and three card poker.

I am going to need the extra scratch for that, even though they comped us the rooms and $250 casino credit and $175 for food and drink.

This beauty should arrive Thursday or Friday from Long Island watch will give some quick photos then.

What was the price?
I had an original orange monster years ago and loved it.

Nice! I thought hard about that one myself. I like the all steel bezel.

Paid just north of $600 for it from Long Island Watches, you can get it a little cheaper from Ebay, but I don't trust the dealers there as much and besides, I am an impatient ******* and wanted it NOW!

Check this video out of it, with the different colors it shows off in different lighting, it is a match for almost every wardrobe pick (like I care about that!)

I had a Monster V2, liked it, but wasn't quite the fan of the dagger teeth markers, these are much better and the 6R15d movement is a big improvement.

V3 G M is a killer.
I own a version 1 BM and a v2 O M
I seriously need to get a v3 from Marc.
