    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.

    I bought this watch sight unseen, based on all the great reviews I read on Amazon and the videos I saw on YouTube. First of all, without people like you and I providing feedback, I would have never known how great this watch actually is. So, thanks so much to all of you for providing feedback to me so I can make such an educated, well-researched selection.

    And that I did ! I received my Seiko Black Monster yesterday, opened the box, and it surely did not disappoint. Everything that I expected. Solid feeling, very comfortable, and perfectly weighted. Anyone thinking of getting this watch, get off the fence !! Its worth every penny, and most definitely worth double due to it's made-from-a-solid-block-of-steel construction.

    So far, its the exact time I set it yesterday, so no gain or loss. They say let it run or break-in for a month, then "it'll settle down", but no issues so far for me....we'll see in the next few weeks.

    Thanks again for everyone's detailed reviews, and I'm VERY glad I joined this Seiko Black/Orange Monster Club !!

    I love this watch! I was actually looking for a seiko divers and couldn't chose between Kinetic or Automatic. I know they each have their strengths and weaknesses. I ended up buying both of them, Ha! Boy am I glad I did. I have the rubber strap on my kinetic and the stainless steel bracelet on my Monster. It's a better deal to purchase it, besides it looks and feels great with it. I can always switch to rubber later. Some people mention the size/weight of theses watches. I don't feel like it's a big deal at all. Unless you just have tiny little wrists. The only thing I don't like which I was completely aware of is the fact I have to wear it ever couple of days or it looses time. But that's an auto for you. The kinetic lasts for months. I have a Rolex Submariner and it collects dust while I wear both of these watches. You will be happy with either one or get both like I did!
