This is another watch that I purchased used from a watch forum. The watch arrived in perfect condition from a fellow watch collector. It always amazes me how these great watches can be purchased for so little cash.
The “Orange Monster” is actually called the SKX781 by Seiko. It features the same 7S26 automatic movement that is found in many Seikos. This watch has an odd asymmetric case, which has given it the nickname “monster”. There any many dial colors for the “monster” but I chose orange for the superb color and visibility. The dial and hands glow for a long time after exposure to the sun, giving the watch a demonic glow at night. It is a very comfortable watch and very accurate timepiece.
