5.0 out of 5 stars Great Value, Great Watch, Great buy--BLACK MONSTER FEVER, May 3, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Seiko Divers Automatic Black Monster SKX779K Men's Watch (Watch)
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.

I couldn't tell if there is any visible difference on the faces of the black monster you posted, and others'. Could you point out what appears different between malaysian and japanese? I might get this watch
