Seiko 5 Automatic Monster Diver Japan SRP311J1 SRP311J SRP311 Mens Watch
The Monster, as we know, is a great watch. Its style is readily recognizable; it’s tough and dive-ready and at a price – if not throwaway – then certainly pretty much appealing. Those who own (or owned) the original Black Monster shall find their old flame rekindled with this Seiko 5 Automatic Monster Diver Japan SRP311J1 SRP311J SRP311 Mens Watch. It covers up the gap between the original Monster and the Prospex Black Monster. If you like bright, vibrant colours, you’ll like it all the more!
Beyond the initial vibrant colour combo, the design of the Seiko 5 Automatic Monster Diver Japan SRP311J1 SRP311J SRP311 Mens Watch is practical and utilitarian. The orange background greatly improves and increases contrast between the dial and the hands and shark-tooth time indices. The large and bold minute markings on the rotating bezel announces it Diver identity but overall, they keep things minimal and uncluttered.
The new Monster Diver clearly shows how Seiko has increased the value in their entry level divers! It’s wonderful to look at, durable as rock and its functions are as smooth as oil. The second generation Monster is even glossier, with the sunburst orange dial adding extra visibility under dim light conditions.
Both the date and day display are present in the SRP313J1. A 24 jewel, hackable and wind-able 4R36 automatic, mechanical movement now drives it rather than a 7S26. Being a Monster, it is highly water resistant till 600 feet underwater and equally (if not more) immune to sudden shocks. It is ISO-certified to be so, including the LumiBrite luminous paint applied on the marks, hands and the indices on the dial. It is non-radioactive, charges real fast and retains the glow for hours in the dark. All these add up to a tremendous value!
In terms of accuracy, Seiko 5 Sport 24 Jewels Monster Diver Japan SRP311J1 SRP311J SRP311 Mens Watch is correct to +10 seconds a day; less if properly broken in. Its bezel functioning is effective; whether you are diving or heating or chilling something for a certain span, the bezel works as a countdown timer to keep track of elapsed time. It turns only in one direction (counter-clockwise) and resists rotation due to impacts and preserve reading.
When it comes to wearing comfort, the stainless steel bracelet of the Seiko 5 Automatic Monster Diver Japan SRP311J1 SRP311J SRP311 Mens Watch is very comfortable and offers a strong hold – thanks to the double-clasp system that locks it firmly at its place. That makes it safe to wear even upon a dive suit and the crown has been knurled deep to offer extra grip! It all feels very solid, durable and reliable – the kind of feeling that more expensive watches deliver!

Newest Addition & Modern Design Seiko Monster Series
Purists often frown upon the very freedom the Monster has owned – its free access to almost any setting – but its escapade from the bounds of tradition started a whole new tradition itself! Diver and Monster are kind of synonymous today; others try to borrow as much from the Monster as possible. This keeps their costs low, maintenance negligible and a lasting equivalent to a rock of its size. However, others do not match the monster performance, despite its not-so-pretty-and-glamorous movement.
Monsters show how tool watches can be economic both in design and construction without compromising on performance and robustness. Their minimal cost strips them off any decorative pretense (some call it fineness) but keeps the striking presence to take it anywhere (save the ball- and the boardroom), not just the sea. This is the reason the Seiko Monster could hold its edge this long; over the years, their prices fluctuated negligibly and whenever it went up, it brought something new! Like the new Seiko Monster unleashed in the 2014, but since it’s all about exclusivity, we’ll talk about it after a little while. Let’s talk about a not-so-new Seiko Monster first.
The Seiko watch Scuba took the Monster series up a notch; it’s one of the best automatics Seiko ever made within this price range. Its unique design makes it perfect also for places where situation demands both style and quality; the solid stainless steel assures you will never be out of place. Cool, colorful and masculine; after a long time the archaic Orange Monster faces a worthy opponent.
However, Baselworld 2014 was all about Seiko’s Prospex line of two new Monsters for the outside market: the Prospex Air-Diver 200 m Monster (same specs as other Monsters; a hackable, hand-wind/auto 4R36 movement with 41-hours of power reserve and a new Prospex logo) in two variations: the SRP581K1 (black case, blue bezel and minute hand; black rubber strap) and the SRP583K1 (black case and bezel; gold hands and crown; black steel bracelet). These are Premium Monsters standing at 42.3 mm (across) and sporting signature large, luminous, shark-tooth hour markers and luminous hour and minute hands, the seconds-hand with lume also on the tip.These come in Seiko’s proprietary Hardlex (the crystal) with near-sapphire hardness but less likely to shatter like one.
But Trek Monster locks its horns well with the Seiko world timer. These moved from the waters to the land and contends well for the iconic title.
An unusual, distinctive design that stands on the verge of being ugly and aggresive, but none can perhaps call it blunt-edged; it’s impressively sharp, thanks to its scalloped bezel and hands.But if you want something that’s really unusual, go for the limited edition Night Monsters.
