I like it. Question, why do I see it listed on sites as 42mm and sometimes 44mm? Are their 2 different sizes of the SKX779K ?
Thanks, Sal. As far as I know there's only one size - officially 42mm dia. excluding the crown. I think perhaps some people just assume it's a 44mm because the Monsters wear slightly larger than you'd expect from a 42mm diver due to it's "bolder" design elements (beefy bezel, raised partial bezel guards, etc.).I like it.

I agree. IMO, Seiko (and Orient, but I'm not as big a fan of Orient's designs) make some of the best valued divers on the market today. The Black/Orange Monsters can be had easily for sub-$200 (like this one ), they comply fully with ISO 6425 standards (I honestly can't think of many other brands that can claim this for a line of divers in a comparable price range), and the Monster bracelets are one of the best in the sub-$1k dive watch price range.I see I see. Fills the wrist quite nicely. For the money, Seiko is a great mix of quality and value.
Edit: Have you seen the Snowmonster? very cool piece as well.
