Another post, this time from Ariel Adams of, on the “new” Seiko Monster line-up, these newer models powered by the hand-windable and hacking 4R36 automatic caliber.

Nice post at Horologium (Australia) with some actual hands-on feedback on the real watch. Sounds more interesting than I originally thought.

Yes the new one has a better caliber, the 4R36, however in the looks department (ignore the modified chapter ring on the older one in this picture, normally it would be orange too), this particular model has gone a bit too gimicky and flashy. With or without the newer movement, I still prefer the original colour combo over the this one
