I'm wondering if the equivalent they make would contain a movement equal to the Seiko 7C46. I think a lot of the initially surprising cost associated with the Monster can be attributed to that.

They use a Seiko NH36 crown winding movement: http://www.shopnbc.com/Deep_Blue_Men_s_Sea_Diver_1000_Automatic_Stainless_Steel_Bracelet_Watch/620-656.aspx?storeid=1&track=-20101&cm_re=SearchList-_-N-_-N&page=LIST&free_text=deep%20blue

OK, it's an auto. I was assuming it would be a quartz. Haven't heard of that particular movement so will have to read up on it.

I hope it's a sturdy auto movement as I'm getting the Sunray Diver orange dial delivered to my home soon and it has the same movement.

In contrast, the Seiko Tuna has a 5-year quartz battery.

I checked it out; it appears to be a Chinese-built version of the 4RXX movements. Accuracy looks poor but i'm sure it's a solid movement otherwise. The 4RXX movements are already considered cut-down and can be found in various Seiko 5s, so i'm guessing the choice of the NH36 is primarily for cost reasons.
Datasheet is here:

Thanks for the heads up, Ulysses. I should post this soon.
