FYI, this is the 2nd generation "monster". There's a 3rd generation out that's really popular, check out the SRP637.

The 3rd gen only has the date window, and it is magnified with a cyclops. In my experience, cyclops' tend to be the first part of the watch to break. Replacing a crystal can be quite expensive.

There is no 3rd gen Monster. The SRP637 dial is completely different than the monsters and it is actually referred to as a "Baby TUNA".

Dude... Have you seen the SBDC023 and 025? It's the 3rd gen Monster.

The only differences are the hour indices and the addition of the "tuna" shroud. It's also called "monster tuna".

I stand corrected then. All I had read was that the SRP307 series Monsters were replaced with the SRP637 series. I wasn't aware of the SBDC025 series. It looks like these new monsters got a bit of a promotion, with them now having the 6R15 movement.

To me, a new generation replaces the previous one and this is not the case IMO. This SBDC023 is a nice looking diver but it doesn't replace the SRP307 line. It is a higher spec diver with prospex signature that have upgraded movement (not the new entry level 4r36) and a much higher price tag. The fact that in some forums it is called a 3rd gen monster doesn't make it one. These new SBDC023/25 are in a different tier than the 2nd gen and are meant to coincide.

It really doesn't cost much more than the SRPs did when they came?
