The Seiko SKX779 (or "Black Monster") has been around, along with its stable mate the SKX81 (Orange Monster), for about ten years now, and in that time has become something of legend among certain circles. It is intended as an affordable automatic diver's watch, and internet research will demonstrate that it regularly appears in "top ten diver's watches for less than £250" listings.

What's the attraction then? - Let's start by saying that this is quite a big and heavy lump of stainless steel to carry on your wrist. Build quality is generally agreed to be good, and you certainly get the impression that this watch will be with you for a few years to come. The aesthetics are slightly different from the myriad of "Rolex Submariner lookalikes" available in this price range - Whilst the "Orange monster" is rarer in the European market and slightly harder (although not difficult) to track down, the "black monster" is probably more conventional in it's appearance, and doesn't scream "look at me" in quite the way that it's orange cousin does.

The uni direction lapsed time bezel is unusual in that it sits within the casing of the watch. It has a brushed finish with markings etched into it, and deep knurls to assist easy rotation when wet or wearing gloves. As with other Seikos I own, the bezel has a firm positive movement with 120 clicks per full rotation.

The heart of the watch is the "Seiko 7S26" 21 jewel automatic movement used in a few other similar models. It's a tried and tested movement, and whilst not as refined as those used in Swiss watches for ten or twenty times the price, its a rugged and reliable, if slightly bulky movement which is generally good for +/- 15 to 30 seconds a day.

Verified Purchase
Been debating buying one of these for years. Sorry i waited so long. I now understand why these watches are so well reviewed. A very comfortable, easy to wear , nice looking and just the right size not too big or small. The black version of the famous " Orange Monster " and a lot more subtle. There is a newer version, but it's bigger and has the new seiko 24 jewel movement. Will no doubt get one in the future , but for now the original version is a keeper. Got the slicone strap as i find them more comforatble than the metal straps ... personal choice i suppose. You won't regret getting this one.

Seiko Black Monster 7 Sept. 2010
By Kamlesh Desai - Published on Amazon.com
I purchased this watch a couple of years ago and currently my best friends are Seikos Authorized Service Center in Mumbai, India. The luminescent markers keep coming off- it amazed me the first time it happened and when it happened that a 3rd marker came off in the year of owning it, I just asked them to pry off all markers, and use the superglue to re-fix them.
I must say that an other wise sturdy watch, keeps good time- but no use if you take it camping or hiking and bump and get one of the markers to come loose and block the hands from keeping time.The 187
Out of frustration I then went back to Amazon and purchased a SOLID Citizen Eco-Drive Professional Divers 300m watch- its large, rock solid and whatever I bang into, gets banged. Not a whimper from the new watch.
The 187 price is up from about 135 that I got it for, but trust me it aint worth the trouble.

Rugged watch 28 Jan. 2008
By Glenn D. Jensen - Published on Amazon.com
I've had this watch for about two months now and I must say it can really take the bumps and bangs. My last watch didn't last a month in the environment that I work in. Not only being rugged it's a nice looking heavy watch, and for that matter the crystal still not scratch. The other plus is that it's an automatic. No more batteries.Enjoy!
