All kinds of "Monsters"
more_vert
Hey all ! So between these three, if you got your hands on one, which one would you go for ? My understanding is that the darker orange one is very rare finding (The Superior). I suspect the SRP311 is a 2nd Gen but i also might be totally wrong. Is one better than the other ? How about accuracy ? How does those compare vs a swiss made mid-range priced watch ? Or would you just opt for the latest and cheapest of them all, the 5 series "Mini" Monster (see the last pic for reference SRPB39J1 ) ? Thank you !

I've got 3. The Orange, Halloween, and BLK, with gold trim. Also considering selling the Halloween and BLK/Gold. The Halloween for sure. Not sure of the BLK/Gold. The Orange Monster is a grail, went through hell and back to get it. Plus I paid way tooo much for it. It's AHHHH KEEPER. I'm getting buried with it! lol

If the price isn't too outrageous, I would go for the real deal. To me, it is preferable to have the original with the better depth rating, than it's less expensive sibling. You can always pick up a baby monster at a later date.

Absolute classic and it wears way smaller than it's 42mm case measures. A KEEPER in my book. Cheers...

Monsters got to have teeth, so I'd pick the 2nd gen, especially a J model. As far as accuracy, I've seen up to ±45 seconds per day. I don't think the Orange Night Monster is a rare watch, but it might be hard to find and process are going up lately from what I've seen, especially for J models. The last two pics are probably both Baby Monsters as I don't think any regular Monsters had the Seiko 5 logo. Seiko 5s are considered "sports"watches and usually aren't actually dive watches. They usually don't have a screw down crown or more than 100m depth rating. If you know what you're getting, a Baby Monster can be a good deal, especially in today's Monster market, but I'm partial to the 2nd gen ones myself

I agree with you that monsters gotta have teeth :) I’m considering getting the srp 315 or 309 whichever one I find first, both really hard to find especially the 309 J model
