I sold a nice old Seiko watch on E-Bay----and I still have a Seiko that belonged to my wife's father----one of my favorite watches (currently in need of a battery). For accurate timekeeping, reliability and durability---at a reasonable price----it's very hard to beat Seiko. For style----at least style I'm currently interested in---I keep finding my way to Tauchmeister and Aeromatic.

Nice watch. I like the Velatura SNAE17 - the all black one with the rubber strap. I also really like some of the Anantas, especially the SRQ015, but they're thousands of dollars and if I'm going that high then I'm looking for a Breitling Super Avenger.

I've considered a Black Monster but there are a half a dozen watches or so that I want more so it will have to wait. One of those half a dozen is the Venom II, which I finally bought on Ebay tonight for $200 - new without tags, but an amazing deal - I bargained a "Make an Offer" down from $299 to $200 (they're almost never less than $300). Let's hope this works out.

The Seiko has a high quality fit and feel that eclipses my Invictas. You have to compare them in person. The lume alone is ten times better.

That Venom II is supposed to be more comfortable than the Venom I. Let us know.

I'll do a post about the Venom II on my blog, although it will be my first Venom so I won't have the same comparison. It hasn't shipped yet but I'm hoping I get it by the weekend. Maybe I'll post about it then.

But yeah, I hear you: my Seiko SNAD61 and my Citizen Black Eagle both seem like better made watches than most of my Invictas, except for the Reserves.

I'll probably get a Black Monster someday.

I've seriously considered getting an Orange Monster, but I already have two Seiko automatics. I can't justify getting the third one.

I hear you, Brian. Autos can be pricey to fix, often more than the value of the watch. I'll stick to one Seiko Black Monster. I love that thing.
