Yeah I know 100th anniversary and all that...can't resist so just picked this one up off the Bay. They keep coming out with limited editions and you know, when you gotta have it. I think it's going on a monster bracelet for wearing, but not planning on wearing much. They say 1000 pieces imported to USA. Not sure how many were or will be made in total. Got the new 436 hacking movement in it. You monster fans will appreciate. I'll let you know how it is when I get it. I like the hour markers, shark teeth, similar to what is on my megladon. Maybe one day I'll stop being a Seiko collector. Maybe one day they will stop with the LE monsters. Yeah right.

I really like this design, but not a fan of the two tone on it. I wish they had made an all SS version of it.

That's still silver and gold two tone, not a fan of the hands or crown. Do you know if they make an all SS version? I doubt it since it's an anniversary watch :(
