I could probably buy 1000 of these for the same price as that Patek.

I chickened out and had the watch guy do it for me. The video Russ shared looked way too complicated!

Very nice. This new model fixes my gripes on the Gen 1, being the green hued and rectangle markers crowding the dial. Well done.

Good job! The Badass Seiko Monster ticks all the right boxes! And, Carl loves 'em!!
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

Nice watch. By the way, did you know that JS of the cigar forum fame was single handily responsible for bringing the Monster into the US?

Was that the same one he helped Seiko with the movement design?

Very spiffy score for Artman.
And the fact I'm still living rent free in his head makes me grin and giggle.
