    Out of those 3 I'd say franken monster. Black monster is a classic but honestly frankenmonster is improved in just about any way you can think.

    And I wote a Seiko over Tissot. Tissot's are nice but just like any mechanical it will eventually need rather expensive maintenance. Seiko also requiers maintenance but no one bothers and for most folks 7sxx based watches go with no issues for over 10 years with no maintenance whatsoever.

    Good luck in your hunt and don't forget to post pics once it arrives.

    So would I. I'd never really noticed them before, but was quite taken by cal. 45's.

    The only drawback is that non-hacking, non-handwinding movement, but that doesn't seem to bother most people - especially at the price.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Tissot the OM mentioned is quartz I believe, I vote orange monster, i have a fond place in my heart for orange dials. Plus movement is a workhorse, no frill, works hard.

    Hey guys, we are in a G-Shock forum!

    The AWG100 is Solar Atomic and you can use it as a time source for your collection.

    Of course the automatics are also very nice...
