    I posted several months ago in this thread, and have a new one. I purchased the Seiko Black Monster. It's an automatic, and is very accurate (about +1 second per day). I got tired of changing batteries and risking the water resistant seals with each change. This thing is pretty much bulletproof. Additionally, the lume on it is outstanding. Hit with with my Surefire, and it will light up a small room.

    Monsters are great. I have that black one on a rubber strap and then had to get the orange one on the SS bracelet :)

    It's actually an SKX779, or SKX781 or various other numbers depending on the dial/strap/bracelet combo - the "monster" is an unofficial name that watch enthusiasts have given it.

    Google for it and you can find a bunch of places that sell them.

    I've worn the same Seiko Dive Master since 1986 when it was a gift from my parents at my first reenlistment. Though I have tested (a very expensive test) the Sunto D3 but went back to my Sekio due to the comfort factor and I didnt rely on a battery operated compus and altimeter that changed every time I flew on a pressurized plane.

    what an ancient thread

    I prefer function over form. Always used Casio digitals, but my current watch is from atomictime.com. Digital and automatically resets the time from radio broadcast every night, so it's never more than a fraction of a second off the exact time. The catch: gotta be within reception range of the transmitter at Fort Collins CO, about 2000 kilometers.

    If you decide to pick one up, let us know what you think. I love mine. The Seiko website doesn't list them since they're not normally sold in the US through normal retailers. As you found, you can pick them up on the net, or at Seiko outlet stores around the USA. The price you found is what I paid at the outlet store outside of Dallas.

    Hey, has anybody put an I.D. on the watch in Transporter II? They show him looking at the watch briefly at the begining and again checking it with another clock on the street also within the first 5 minuets and it looks like a very cool watch.

    Anybody that can clue me in would be great, I would be interested in looking into that watch further.

    I used to like really cool, but real thin watches, like tanker models. I recently got my last watch though, and it's my favorite. It's a gold Accutron my Mother, sisters and I gave to my dad for Father's Day in about 1965 or so. We had eaten canned tuna, spam and assorted garden veggies for months so Mom could save grocery money to buy the watch. The lousy food was worth it. It was the last watch Dad ever needed. My Mom gave it to me after Dad died in 2004.

    I wear it daily, sync it with our atomic clock, and it's only off a second or so a week. Pretty darn good for an 'ole guy. Kinda like my Dad.

    No pics, but I'm as proud of it as a four year old with a new front tooth.
