Thank you, NoleenELT! That one was taken a while back so I don't remember all the minute and crazy details about it but you've summed it up well there except that the "flash" in question was probably just a regular lamp or something.
Yeah, that's the only variant in this series that came with the grid pattern textured dial. There's yet a third black-dialed version that's similar to yours save for a black bezel with all white lettering.
I don't quite see the connection between this and the Monster other than the all too common Seiko practice of some shared hands and a similar but not the same bracelet.
To my eyes, this sharp, bold and functional design leaves the convoluted and kinda dated looks of the Monster in the dust...I'll be back with the flame-retardant suit on...
