The Seiko Monster was first introduced in 2000, borrowing aspects from the Seiko 5 line and the Tuna line. Our 2007 Seiko Orange Monster SKX781 7S26-0350 has a 42.5mm polished stainless steel case, a lug-to-lug length of 47.5mm and a thickness of 12.5mm giving the watch an excellent wrist presence. Tuna-like shielding surrounds the watch protecting the screw-down crown at 4 o’clock and giving it its aggressive form, a wide rotating concave bezel is deeply knurled for extra grip and has deep engraved 60-minute dive numerals painted black for easy reading. The flat hardlex crystal sits above a vibrant orange dial, an outer minute track has applied baton indexes coated in pillow luminescence marking the hours. At 12 o’clock you have a shark tooth shape, the day/date window is clear to see the black print on white and the 60-minute numerals are printed in black. The luminescent coated hands when at 12 form a rocket ship, the text is precisely printed. On the reverse, a screw-down case back with an embossed Seiko Tsunami in the centre, inside an automatic Seiko Cal. 7S26, 21 jewels, 21,600 beats per hour, this workhorse of a movement was first introduced in 1996. The watch comes on its original Seiko Stainless steel bracelet with its signed folding clasp and comes with an original Seiko presentation box and paperwork.
We have stocked many Monster's over the years and all have gone to collectors who absolutely love them, it is a watch you either love or you hate and I used to really dislike it, but over the years I've really warmed up to the Monster and even owned one for a prolonged period of time! This 1st Gen Orange Monster is THE Monster for most collectors, it gets even better than this one comes with its box and paperwork too, so snap it up whilst you can.
Seikos history began in 1881 when Kintaro Hattori established the K. Hattori retail and repair store. In 1892 Seikosha was established to make wall clocks. 1895 saw the production of their first pocket watch. 1913 saw the launch of their first wristwatch, the Laurel. In 1924 the first Seiko was manufactured. Daini Seikosha (now Seiko Instruments Inc.) was established in 1937. Seiko was listed on the Tokyo stock exchange in 1949. The Suwa factory became independent and formed Suwa Seikosha Co., Ltd. (now Seiko Epson Corporation in 1959). In 1956 Seiko launched Marvel as their first true in-house made watch; they continued to make this watch until 1959. Japan’s first chronograph watch was introduced for the 1964 Tokyo Olympics; it was called the Seiko Crown Chronograph monopusher. Not stopping there Seiko launched Japan's first true divers watch the Seiko Diver’s 150M fitted with the automatic Caliber 6217 which later was given the nickname “62MAS” by collectors. The company name was changed to the Seiko Corporation in 1990. Innovation at Seiko continues today with GPS Solar watches.
