    While I love the matching blue color of the strap, I am not a fan of the Seiko wave rubber strap. It's stiff and uncomfortable. I always loved the heft and look of the Engineer bracelets on the Monsters, making them appear like tool watches.

    I am using this on a blue Isofrane for now.



    With this bracelet I'm seriously considering saving up and buying a monster now!

I love blue-colored watches.
    I highly doubt Seiko would make an entirely new case for an LE that's bigger than the standard... I know some people were having trouble with their shrouds fitting, that might be the issue? But I suppose I could be wrong it would just seem so strange to me for them to have a 2nd case size for these... maybe try fitting another rubber shroud on there and see if it fits snug like stock? Then that would show there's a difference between cases...

    Well Ditoy has a lot of those Yobokies shrouds (both SS and DLC) so he would know if there's a difference. the only major difference between SRP453 and the previous regular and le is that blue bezel. Might have something to do with achieving that finish.

    Someone is going to put the hands and the crown in silver or chrome? You should also look good to me even more so I would like.

    Are you guys monster needles available in chrome or silver?

    The watch I love, I have to get me one.

    Where do they sell them to send to Spain?

    Hi Ditoy_Eagle,

    Does Armix steel bracelet that you put on the Monster is bought from Yobokies? Where do they sell that model? I love it.

    These are engineer bracelets purchased from strapcode/tungchoy. I have 3 yobokies shrouds that really didn't fit this new LE model.

    As requested by some members, here they are on Engineer and Mesh:

    I love blue dialed divers. The SRP453 dial is one of the best I have seen since the Seiko Ti Samurai Blue Diver - a very dark metallic radiant blue that just draws you in. The new SRP453 color combination looks fantastic but like others I think it would look better with silver hands, crown, and shroud. If using silver hands off another SRP227 the bottom of the hands are painted black so you may want to dip the hand set blue to match the dial just like the gold hands are dipped blue at the bottom. Also the silver crown has a band that is painted black and this might look better painted blue. Not sure why Seiko has the banded crowns as I do not believe they look very good.

    I also think it would look better with one of Harold's (Yobokies) SS Shrouds but if they don't fit that would be disappointing. I think the modded watch would look fantastic with a SS shroud and the blue metallic bezel would stand out even more. Add a standard SS bracelet that comes with the SRP series and I think you would have a fantastic looking blue diver. If only someone can get Harold's Shroud to fit this watch????
