Seiko Monster Limited Edition SRP455

Seiko Blue Monster Limited Edition SRP455

For the 100th Anniversary of watchmaking for Seiko, they have introduced a series of Limited Edition automatics, in one of their most iconic series, the “Monster”.  The first in our review is SRP455 which is the closest to the actual monster everyone knows and loves.  Recently, Seiko made some upgraded Monster’s using their 4R36 movement, and the SRP455 is no exception.

The use of the upgraded 4R36 is beneficial in several ways.  First and foremost, this model will have a hack (stop seconds) and manual wind feature, which you did not have in the infamous “Orange Monster”.  The 4R36 has 24 jewels, 21,600 bph, and displays centralized time day and date.

The stainless steel case measures out just slightly over 43mm and as with all mosters, has a great case side design that is shaped to match the sides of the bezel.  The attention to detail on such an inexpensive watch is really impressive.

The new Seiko Monster SRP455 Superior Limited Edition is set to retail at $495.  I have to say that you cannot beat the price for such a unique and quality limited edition.

    Hi, I really like it and would like to know its power reserve time, many seller mentioned 6 months power reserve time but I can’t believe because most Automatic watch have 40-50 hours power reserve.

    Thanks
