Known in the watch world for its blindingly bright lume, the Black Monster is a staple in EDC watches. Seiko has updated one of their most unique diver’s watches with improved aesthetics and a new automatic movement. The substantial steel bracelet, scratch-resistant crystal and rugged construction result in an EDC watch that you'll never want to take off your wrist. The Black Monster’s Japanese movement has a hacking seconds hand (meaning you can freeze the hand for to-the-second time setting) and can be wound by hand. The heavily textured bezel not only looks great, but allows for easy setting even with gloves on. The feature-packed SRP307 is available with several different dial colors. Choose black to keep a low profile, or make a statement with the bright orange model.

One of my favorite Seiko watches (especially the 2nd gen model). Thks for the review.

The Orange Monster is one of my all time favorites. I used to think it was the ugliest watch design ever but somehow, it grew on me. The construction is as solid as it gets. The ratchety bezel doesn't have any play and the lume is amazing. As mentioned, the 2nd gen. Monster is great especially with the hand winding and hacking capability and the shark teeth imprints.

Same here! I have yet to pull the trigger on one (picked up an SKX173 instead) but I always have it in the back of my mind as my next watch. The update is definitely an improvement over the original and I love the new knurled crown.
