    Yeah, the Gen 3 monsters are nice but all the criticisms of the specs for the price are completely deserved. I was hoping for more limited edition dial colors but so far blue is the only one. Also the "regular" black and orange dial models seem to be going up in price due to scarcity but like the lower-end divers, supply might just depend on seasonal production runs and more might hit the market again soon (or not).

    I actually saw a Gen 3 Black Monster listed at below $400 USD two nights ago and almost pulled the trigger but it is far too redundant with my SRP637.

    I freely admit that the little beaut snook straight past me (I blame Sinn for it) but once seen, never forgotten.

    $300 overpriced but a lovely blue imo.

    That it is. One can get two Gen 2 Monsters for the price and really, the blue is not as vibrant and noticeable as most of the photos. Again, I have to get it in just the right lighting indoors for it to show up in photographs. It's beautiful in natural light but the lume aggressively competes for attention when charged up (even outside!). I am hoping the dial fades just slightly over time. It is still easily my favorite 6R15 diver and favorite Monster, though, and I would recommend the SBDC025 if it drops below $400.

    I love the watch, much better than the Gen 2 shark tooth, IMO. However more than I'm willing to spend at that price point. Still love my Gen 1 OM.

    The strange thing is that monsters have always the same reference "in classic version".
    1gen used the SKXxxx series,
    2gen used the SRPxxx series,
    3rd gen used the SBDCxxx series.

    This one uses the SNCZxxx series so it could be a limited edition.

    My second gen monster last the entire night.
    On my bathroom there is a strong light, when I clean my tooths it recharge the lume,
    than I go to bad and after 8 hours (when I'm lucky to sleep that much) I can easily read the hours in the morning (my room is completely black, no light at all)
