Seiko 2nd Generation Black Monster with new 24-Jewel Automatic Movement #SRP313K1

The Seiko Superior SRP313 is the new, second generation Black Monster dive watch. It retains the essentials of the original such as the Seiko rubber dive strap, case and bezel, while changing the dial slightly and going with a new 24-jewel Seiko caliber 4R36 automatic (self-winding) movement. You will notice right away that the hour markers are shaped like shark teeth instead of the original mostly rectangular shapes. The inner sixty minute markings are no longer displayed making for a cleaner, less cluttered look. And, this version has red accents around the shark teeth and red hands filled with white Lumibrite.

The biggest change is on the inside. The watch is now powered by a new 24-jewel caliber 4R36 movement which now can be hacked and hand wound. Hacking is handy for synchronizing the watch with another timepiece. Just unscrew the crown. Pull it out to the 2nd position and the second hand will stop while you set the time. Hand winding lets you power up the watch manually after it has sat unworn for a few days. The movement is more accurate also compared to the caliber 7S26 used in the first Monster.

The powerful Seiko LumiBrite luminescent material is of course still used and it retains the same brilliant glowing properties that made the Orange Monster such a huge worldwide phenomenon with watch enthusiasts and scuba divers. It is a very slightly different shade of blue-green this time. Still an awesome sight in the dark after charging it with a bright light source. You will also notice a new nicely machined crown that is a bit easier to grip than the previous version.

Lug width is 20mm. Case size is 43mm. Slightly domed Hardlex mineral crystal. Concave dive bezel to help protect the crystal. Seiko rubber dive strap with a buckle clasp. Solid screw-in case back. Water resistant to 200 meters. Day and date window. Red trimmed hands. It's a fantastic bargain.

Black Beauty! July 9, 2014
Reviewer: King Clutch from Queensbury, NY United States  
I needed a tough and durable Seiko watch that I can wear without worry while doing yard work...etc.

This particular iteration of the Seiko Monster is using a newer movement which you can hand wind and also hack, and it has excellent accuracy for a 21600 VPH movement.

The strap is similar to the famous Seiko Tuna Can, so you know it will fit a variety of wrist sizes.

I love the shark teeth with the bloody red outlines on them. Long Island Watch helped me pick this one out because they know their products inside & out!

For the price, and the quality for money spent nobody should be on the fence regarding ANY 2nd generation Monsters.

Purchasing from Marc and the fine folks at Longislandwatch.com couldn't be easier and the shipping was extremely fast!

-Thank You

Watch is great, service is BETTER! February 21, 2014
Reviewer: Tom from Iowa City, IA United States  
My first time ordering with Island Watch and what an experience.  I ordered the 2nd gen Monster on the rubber strap because, honestly, in my haste to order quickly, didn't even see the option for the, very nice, bracelet.  Imagine my surprise when I open the Seiko box to see my Monster fitted with the bracelet.  I quick email to Marc to explain that I was sent a higher-priced item in error (and at a lower price) and this is the response I get:  "Hey Tom – sorry for our mistake. If you’re happy, I’m happy, so. . . enjoy"

Doesn't get much better than that.  Thanks Marc and Island Watch!

awesome. November 2, 2013
Reviewer: Michael from bloomingburg, NY United States  
Ordered on 10/31 and recieved on my door step on 11/1. I originally ordered the SRP313K2 and got the SRP313K1. Was a slight order mixup.  Emailed the sales team And got a email back within minutes.  The mixup was worked out with excellent service.  The watch is excellent  and Comes with all paperwork. Would buy again from this company no doubt.

2nd Gen Black Monster August 14, 2013
Reviewer: A watch guy from vancouver, BC Canada  
Very pleased with the ordering,shipping and the promptness of delivery with Island Watch. The watch I purchased has the funky red hands, an unusual feature that makes the watch stand out. I only wish this model was offered with a metal bracelet as well. The execution of the watch for the price point is great with hacking and hand winding abilities with this movement, two improvements over the 1st Gen Monster. The dial is highly legible, and the lume is awesome when fully charged. This watch will not disappoint. Now if Seiko would only make this watch with a GMT complication!
