    I just heard, then verified on line that our beloved Monster has been discontinued. Any thoughts as to why retire such a popular line. or any thoughts in general.

    Man, that sucks, cult classic goes away. I don't even have one, but its sad to hear. I doubt it wasn't selling good.

    I already have an SKX173. I always liked the Monster. I guess now might be the time to pick one up if they have officially been discontinued.

    Wow, I just got back from a Caribbean cruise. We made 6 stops and I looked in almost every shop that sold Seiko and I only found one orange monster. I thought it was funny, but I guess this explains it. I better get one quick.

    Where did you verify this information? Seiko still shows both the black and the orange on their site. Either way, they will be available for a while until the current supply is gone.

    Orange Monster deal

    I have no affiliations with the above link. I just ordered one myself. Make sure you use the promo code. 6 hours left on the deal as of this posting or until they are sold out. Discontinued or not, this is a darn good price. Good luck gents!

    Do you know if that is a legitimate website or not? Because I have been looking to pick up an orange monster and if it's a legitimate site I am going to hop on that...

    They seem legit. I found the link on WSU. I ordered one anyway. It's one of those deals I CAN'T pass up.
    They are a Yahoo "Certified Merchant" and show 4 1/2 checkmarks on Deal Time....whatever those mean these days. I can always call my credit card company if they don't deliver.

    True. I think I will hop on it. If I don't like the rubber strap, I can always pick up a Nato strap from County Comms.

    Once it arrives (fingers crossed) I'm going to get the Maratac orange stitched composite band for it. I saw a picture of one on WSU. :shocked:

    :( :winkwink: :evil: I love the emoticons. The price is hard to beat. I had to do a super fast search on the pricing before I pulled the trigger. Yep, it's a steal alright. Even on eBay you won't find one that cheap (new). The cheapest I found was $175 on Google.

    Black Monster deal

    I suspect both sites I listed are ran by the same people. I really think they are legit now because the above link is a site sponsor for WUS.
    Again, make sure you use the promo code listed on the ad. I almost forgot myself.

    Same disclaimer: I have no affiliations with the above sites. I do not get kick backs or anything. I just passing on the savings if you don't know about them. Have fun shopping guys!

    Where did you read that the Monster was discontinued? I haven't heard anything about this.

    I first learned of this from a BM ad on Craigslist, then googled it (skx779 discontinued or seiko monster discontinued) and found results confirming it.
