Seiko Baby "Bad Ass" Monster $140

Post by koimaster » August 19th 2019, 9:22am

Seiko 5 SRP48X "Baby Monster" Automatic Watch

Seiko’s “Baby Monster” is derived from the company’s original “Monster” line, which featured the same chunky hands and dial layout. This version—much more affordable than its predecessor—scales the water resistance down to a still-commendable 100 meters, and swaps out the screw-down crown for a standard one. The case is certainly brawny (it’s called the “Baby Monster,” after all), and made from stainless steel with a mineral crystal. Lumed hands and markers make for good legibility in dark conditions, while a day-and-date window at 3 helps you track the day in English and Spanish. Time your mission with the notched unidirectional bezel. Giving life to the timepiece is Seiko’s 4R36 24-jewel movement, which can be seen via the exhibition caseback.

Nope. Not the bad-ass Seiko Monster. A wannabe.

The original Monster was, well, really bad-ass; it was also the gateway drug into This Thing of Ours. In the old dayes, you could pick one up, all day long, for a couple hundred bucks. Then, when you got the itch, you could sell it for $180.

I don't think we'll see it's like again.
My little brain can't even comprehend how deep that is.

Original Monster or go home.

Yours was a larger version of this a 42mm original? I haven't been keeping track of the line.
Mine is 43mm but wears larger than the actual true BAM
