Summary: good memorable watch iconic in watch community, wait for the right discounted price an there no going wrong... not the best at +/- sec a day, from the minute i took it out, i can almost pick what seconds a day im loosin its so obvious at some points like when sec hand is pointed at 6oclock position if slightly moved the sec hand will have a miniscule jump in the movement therefore loosing miliseconds every time...
Summary: I purchased this in August as I was planning a Dive Trip to Playa Del Carmen/Cozumel in December. It turned into my everyday watch, I am an HVAC contractor and get my hands into some pretty tight spots. Watches, rings and other things is the general rule and I do my best to keep from banging it up but some knocks are unavoidable. In 4 1/2 months the face is still unscathed and the time has had no noticable variance from my cell phone clock.
Summary: Have it from august and I'm wearing my orange monster every day.HAPPY! I just bought original Seiko stainles steel-49X8JG band(nothing wrong with rubber band)from Watchbands.com(perfect service) for $50-no problem with hair under band + is comfy.Sometimes is better buy monster with rubber band and pay extra $50 for steel band. Depend on the different price of monster with or without stainles steel band.Seiko is the cheapest hight-end wath. I like it and you will be to.
Summary: I've always wanted an automatic watch, but was concerned about the long term durability of such a machine. I had a gift card given to me that had just enough money on it get the Seiko "Orange Monster", so I went for it after many of the positive reviews on amazon. I really had instant buyers remorse after I made the purchase, and tried to cancel the order...but Amazon was just too fast. It showed up within a day (even though I chose 2-3 day shipping).
Summary: It's on the large side but not huge, and not as heavy as I thought from reading the reviews. My Monster is slightly larger and about the same weight, with the rubber wrist band, as my Hamilton King Scuba. It's very easy to see in the dark, even after several hours, which is a big 'plus' for me. The 200 meter depth is impressive, but if I'm ever more than a couple feet under water something has gone horribly wrong. I don't even shower with a watch.
Summary: I needed a watch to replace my misplaced G Shock and was very interested in quality automatics. This one is pretty ubiquitous so I gave it a shot. First day thoughts: Not as big as I expected, although I have larger hands/wrists. My G Shock was much thicker and about the same diameter, with chunkier lugs that made it seem larger. This one wears quite flat for its size and the crown doesn't bother my wrist at all. Slips under a sleeve easily.
Summary: My brother gave me this watch when I became a paramedic. I love it BUT it needs to be reset to the correct time way too often and the local jewelers can't fix that problem. It has to be sent back to Seiko.
Summary: It's a Seiko, kind of like a Honda, they just keep on going. Watch looks great, good waterproof qualities and feels good on the wrist even with a large rubber strap. Initially was disappointed with it's time keeping abilities. It was running about 30 seconds fast in a 24 hour peiod. That's a little bit too much "off" for me.
