Now on my 2nd week of Enhanced Community Quarantine (though I still go to the office on some days 😷) I inevitably and thankfully begin to take timeoff for myself and my family.
I graduated college 10 years ago today and this quarantine is the longest I've stayed home and the longest I've slept since then :) I forgot how much I've missed the afternoon siestas I used to resent as a child :P sleeping at 1330H and waking up a bit before 1530H. (Btw that's my Bertucci A2-T, doesn't go out often due to the quarantine haha)

If memory serves, there's at least one guy around here with a really nice Orange first gen too, (the Orange dial is model SKX781). According to the article, the Orange version was the most popular of the two.
There are a couple of good links in the article; one discussing Seiko's most recently axed popular watches, and other that covers the entire range of Seiko Monsters from beginning to present. Spoiler alert: the most recent Monster looks suspiciously like the first one--go figure!
