    I believe that your information may be in error. I've done some searching on various Seiko watch forums, and have found no evidence that Seiko has discontinued the Monster.

    I can find no reliable reference that this is the case, Craig's List is hardly a reliable resource. None of the watch forums or Seiko's own site mention the Monster as discontinued.

    I suggest we put this discontinuance on hold until there is a really reliable resource. While it is certainly possible, it is not logical, considering the popularity (and sales) of these watches.

    By no means do I believe CL is a reliable source (especially by someone who is trying to pump up his item), it is where I first heard of this. I googled it and found that some retailers showed it as discontinued. Here is one of the result: http://www.righttime.com/rt/seiko/wwoldmodels.htm This seemed to make a little sense since I has seen quite a few on sale lately. Possibly a case of seeing evidence to justify a hypothesis?

    I just shot an e-mail to Seiko inquiring about this and will post results ASAP. Hope it is false.

    LOL, running a Google search for anything will return a result for it, regardless of how true or untrue it is. Just go search for your favorite conspiracy theory!

    No worries! It caused me to search for immediate deals and I found one. I hope those who were interested in a Monster regardless of status jumped on the specials.

    On that note, the OM I ordered from FractionPrice shipped. :woohoo:

    While Christmas shopping with the wifey today I tried on a Black Monster and loved it. They were asking $270 on sale, marked down from $350. I never buy anything anymore without searching the internet first.

    Just found it for $150 shipped from World of Watches. :woohoo:
