Diver-Style 24-Jewel Auto With Rotating Bezel

Seiko’s “Baby Monster” is derived from the company’s original “Monster” line, which featured the same chunky hands and dial layout. This version—much more affordable than its predecessor—scales the water resistance down to a still-commendable 100 meters, and swaps out the screw-down crown for a standard one. The case is certainly brawny (it’s called the “Baby Monster,” after all), and made from stainless steel with a mineral crystal. Lumed hands and markers make for good legibility in dark conditions, while a day-and-date window at 3 helps you track the day in English and Spanish. Time your mission with the notched unidirectional bezel. Giving life to the timepiece is Seiko’s 4R36 24-jewel movement, which can be seen via the exhibition caseback.

Note: At checkout, choose the SRP481 or the SRP483 model.

Was just going over the comments from this old drop and all I can say is congratulations to everyone who actually scored one of these at MD's price of $140 because buddy, that ain't never gonna happen again! Couple of reasons for that: first, in all likelihood the watch has probably been discontinued in both colors (Blue and Orange) and second, we just don't get those kinds of deals anymore on Seiko--hell, we barely get any damn Seikos around here period! There's a lesson in all that--this watch had dropped a couple of times if memory serves, and more than a few guys (**see note below) passed it up thinking there was no particular rush to purchase one--perhaps it wasn't their first choice for a new watch, maybe they couldn't decide on the color, and since it had always been around, they likely thought it would continue to be around--until that day when it wasn't! Yes, watch fans, that day came and went a long time ago and I'm bet'n none of us got that email--the one telling us this was the last time we'd see the Ice Monster, and the last time we'd see a Seiko at what now turns out to have been a better than 50% discount... [image] It's a bitter pill to swallow, but after checking the usual discount sites this morning--Amazon looks to be the only seller with inventory, and their price is $319 for Blue, and $379 for Orange! Whether that price makes sense to you at this point is between you and your wallet, but I can only imagine New, In-box prices for these and all the other discontinued Seikos (SKX, SARB, etc...) we all thought would be around forever, are only going to climb higher. If that price doesn't work for you, it looks like the only alternative is the used market. So, what do you think? Is the Baby Ice Monster worth three hundred bucks, or would you rather spend about that much for one of the new models in Seiko 5 line? **NOTE: as of today, MD has sold more than seven hundred Ice Monster and has received more than 1,000 requests for more. I'm sure MD wishes they could source another few hundred just as much as the guys who missed out do... [image]
