    I have a number of watches in my collection; big, small; digital, analog; Divers, Chronographs, Atomics ... I love watches. But I recently began a search of reasonably priced self-winders. It also had to be reliable, and I would prefer a diver-type style. The past couple years I've taken a liking to Invicta watches, but their quality is hit and miss. The low end (less than $100) Invicta seems less reliable than the lowly Timex; any good self-winding Invicta seems to start around $250-300.

    I love Amazon's suggestioned item. It picked up on my quest for an auto-winder diver watch, and steered me HERE. The Seiko SKX779 "Black Monster." Review after review was glowing. Overall, a 4 1/2 star watch, for less than $200. And Seiko reliability is unquestioned and unparalleled.

    Look/Feel - I would think a "monster" of a watch would be big, along the lines of Invicta's Grand Lupah. That's not the case at all. A little bigger than some of my watches, but not overly so. This has a nice stainless steel band, and it is a hefty watch. It feels solid, like it was chiseled out of a single piece of metal. The glow-dial feature is bright and makes it easy to read in the dark. Even the feel of the turning bezel has a solid, quality feel to it.

    Accuracy - I really have nothing to compare it to as everything in my collection is battery/quartz or solar/atomic. I've had it for a month or so, and it runs a little fast, about 1-2 minutes a month; and for an analog watch, that's fine. I usually do not look at an analog watch and say "it's 11:12PM", I look and say, "it's about ten after eleven ...". In my book, "close is close enough" for any non-quartz watch.

    Self-winding - I love it. Again, nothing to compare it to except the observations of others.

    I have owned the "black monster" for three years now. Sold my "yellow monster" to my son because he liked it so much and I found I did not care for the yellow face. Both are rugged, solid watches. The yellow is four years old and the black is three years old. They gain 3-5 minutes per month, but most automatics do. You have to change the date five months out of the year anyway, so a reset is no problem every other month. Had a general contractor doing some work for us and he liked the black monster so much he went out and ordered on, too.

    Oh my God this is a cool watch. If you want a steel sunflower on your wrist, if you want to be both funky and elegant, if you want to be hip and down to earth all at once, you certainly want this watch. James Bond is not cool because he wants to wear an Omega instead of this thing. Forget the fantastic brand history, forget the reliability and durability, forget the price even - this watch is both beautiful and radical: if you don't want that, you need to ask yourself why.

    I must admit upfront I'm a watch freak, the owner of dozens of big watches, well over 52mm, with brands such as Nixon, Invicta, Citizen (Professional Diver), etc. But I have to say my Seiko Black Monster, my smallest watch at 43mm across the bezel, doesn't look small at all. It has a heft about it, thanks in part to the bezel's thickness.

    As far as styling goes, you have to get this watch with the metal bracelet. The stainless steel bracelet blends into the matching bezel edge, contributing largely to this watch's upscale look. If you need a rubber strap, buy one aftermarket.

    If you don't like to "baby" automatic watches, making sure they're wound up through constant movement, this watch may not be for you. You cannot wind this watch. It only stays activated through movement, which means if this watch is part of a large rotation, you will have to reset the time, date, and day of the week every time, which takes about 3 minutes.

    I agree with those who say this watch looks like it costs between $1,000 and $2,000 and that it is worth the extra "work" as an automatic watch. Highly recommended.

    Wow... I am amazed by this watch it is absolutely beautiful. I ordered the Monster with the black face and boy am I glad I did. I have been researching watches for quite a while and this one always came through on a variety of websites as being a great buy, and a watch whose quality far exceeds the price. I agree with these reviews. The casing, the brushed stainless steel, the sweeping movement are all beautiful, my friend has a few omega and rolex timepieces and even he was looking at getting a black monster after he saw mine. I have received compliments on it quite regularly also. If you have your reservations about making the purchase.. DONT... Seiko is a reliable watchmaker and the quality is there. Don't be fooled by brands that make you pay more for the name. This watch carries a japanese movement in it but is assembled in a Malaysia plant. Seiko has a few plants located out of Japan but from what I understand the quality is no different, the only thing that differs is the place on the map in which your timepiece was put together. Depending on the seller you buy it from the face may display Malaysia movement on the front... Depending on who you talk too this makes a difference in the desirability and collect ability of the watch. I purchased mine from Luxurywatchstore through Amazon and it does not display malaysian movement on the face, I will be posting pictures here soon so you can see. So buy through them if this matters to you, Im happy I did personally. BUT REMEMBER TECHNICALLY SPEAKING THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE. So if you want a great watch at a great price with an awesome workhouse movement, the best lume on the market (honestly... this thing needs to be in the light for like two min and it displays amazing glow), Seiko's reliability, and a great compliment attractor look no further than the Seiko black monster. PS... get the model with the stainless band, it is made of solid stainless and is beautiful and well worth the additional 15-20 bucks.
