1st time posting in this thread, but here are a few photos of the Seiko Dive watch I purchased just before Christmas...I believe this may be a Seiko Monster. It's certainly got some size and weight to it :)




I also have a Timex Ironman and Pulsar Kinetic (no photos at present). Looking to invest in a couple of new watches this year, hopefully including an Omega Seamaster Professional :)

Nice!  What you have there is a not a Monster, however.  It's called a "Superior" and the model number is SRP441k.  Basically, it's a little bigger and less water resistant than a monster but with a transparent case back.  The bezel is also very different and not ratcheted.  
 
Great piece you've got there so enjoy it!

Thanks for the information Biffatpaulie, I wasn't sure what it was as I couldn't find the details from the seller (purchased off EBay). It is a great watch and now my everyday watch....great size and nice weight to it. Really impressed with it at the end of the day.

I think most people on watch forums calls it a field monster cause  of the similarity.

Seiko diver watches are a great value I feel. They are easy to own as you can get different aftermarket bands that fit. All the bands are just good working and easy on the wrist for the size of these beasts. The watches have a sturdy build that lasts years and years.


I purchased mine in 93 when there was very few "big" watches. Still of all the watches I have owned the Seiko has been the longest lasting and least matenence. I had a $1000 watch with a thin, smoke stack, I think that is what they call the metal area outside of the numbers. What many don't realize is that if a watch gets hung on something that smokestack keeps the watch from flexing. If you are clumsey having a Seiko diver will let you be clumsey. My $1000 watch broke into pieces. Lucky I was able to sell all the parts and working internals on eBay and get most of my money back.
