I also own an "Orange Monster". I've had it for 15 years and it has performed flawlessly since day one.
I took off one star because the rotating bezel got a bit gummed up and i had to remove and clean the mechanism. To be fair this was after a year of every day wear. Also, I would love it if they traded some bezel thickness in order to make the dial itself a bit bigger.
Overall, an excellent watch that i would recommend to anyone looking for a solid automatic.
I stopped wearing the watch around 13 months because the rubber wrist strap-keeper broke and I'm too cheap to pay $20+ for a replacement strap. My watch ran slow by about 20 seconds per day.
In sum, the watch is a tank and when my G-Shock's rubber strap eventually fails, I'll switch back to my all-time favorite: the Seiko Monster.
My family decided I needed a "work watch" - I wear a suit and tie during the week. They didn't surprise me, I was asked and I said I'd always liked the Seiko divers and they got on here and found this one on Amazon and picked it out. I liked the looks of it a lot too - and we ordred it on my account with Amazon Prime. The verdict? - OH MY - this watch is great. It's not huge on my wrist, but I'm 6'4".
I didnt' attempt the sizing - it cost me $8 and 10 minutes at a jewelers and he even offered to service it when I want it - the jeweler was an authorized Seiko dealer...he had some nice divers and I asked him why he didn't have any "monsters" - to which he replied I did...I usually do...but I sold all 4 of mine I had on hand before Christmas. lol.
Of course I am sure Amazon saved me a ton over retail and I really like the watch. The "lume" as they call it? It's ok...but it's NOT like hitting the button on my casio and having the screen light up for easy viewing. That said...I think it's pretty ok.
My routine will more than likely be to wear it M-F and take it off for hard core outside stuff like hunting, fishing, canoeing, rock climbing, mountian biking, etc... or even riding the Harley. Not so much that the watch can't take it...I see on some reviews that it can...but I have a bombproof casio that costs me only 20 bucks and will outlive this one anyway...plus the casio is matte black and not shiny. works better for outdoors.
The Monster isn't really "bling" - to me - it's just a nice stainless steel bracelet watch with a divers head on it that really looks better than a regular divers head 100x over. It's not heavy...and it's not light...but it is about just right.
I am very happy my family wanted me to 'upgrade' my work watch....this will be nice.
What do I like about it? The heft is on target. Not overly heavy but has some real heft to it. It feels like a man's watch. The luminous dial is very visible all night. You could easily use it as a bedside clock. I was torn about the band - steel or rubber - but I'm glad I went with the rubber since I have a tendency to adjust throughout the day; sometimes loose, sometimes tight. Time keeping for me has been accurate. I don't always get to wear a watch because of the nature of my job, so there are times when the watch will sit for a day or two. It still keeps time perfectly.
The first watch I bought with my own money when I got my first job as a dishwasher was a Seiko. It still works over 30 years later. I'm definitely a Seiko fan and definitely a fan of the Black Monster. So much so that the next week I bought the Orange Monster as well.
