Caliber 7S26-0350 Twenty-one jewels
It took me a while to warm up to the Monster look. Initially I hated this chunky heavy piece of stainless steel especially her non-conventional Divers bezel. As I grow wiser in my Seiko quest, I hear the praises Seiko collectors sing of the Black Monster and see the stunning photos captured by lovers of the Monster tradition.
Finally I pulled the trigger on my first Black Monster and am I impressed by the quality and make as I hold the heavy beast in my hands. One attractive feature is the design and substance of the solid stainless steel bracelet.
The bold-looking hands, the generous use of lume on the indices, the jet black dial, my favourite black day-date wheel and the mean looking bezel add to the inherent charm of this divers, which in my opinion, has attained "cult" status.
