    The Stealth Monster



    This is probably the watch that took on the most transitions. The design evolved and was influenced by several customers requests for coating work. Not wanting another all black watch the bezel and crown are coated with a color called Sniper Gray and the case and back are finished in Graphite Black ceramic. The case back has the tsunami icon highlighter to the SS finish. The bezel indexes are enameled in black to add to the stealth look. The pip has a blue-green extra helping of high intensity lume. The dial is standard Orange Monster framed with a Black Monster chapter ring. The hands are C3 Plongeur type in a black and orange color scheme. For every day wear the watch is on a Maratac Elite composite strap in all black or can be switched to the all black zulu. For diving and to add a splash of color a orange strapped for time rubber dive strap is also part of the deal. In the hopes that it helps drive the sales on these I'm going to show for the first time to the public the two color engraved and hand enameled rotor that were done on all the Seiko Auction watches. You really have to see it in person to appreciate how good it really looks and that is left to the winners of the 4 Seiko watches. The pink ribbon is the symbol of the charity we are supporting and even getting permission to use it was a great deal of work by various team members. There is around $350 worth of modifications and parts in this watch not including the core watch itself. Here are some pictures starting with the picture of the rotor, so get ready to start bidding Friday (August 7th) at noon.













    Lume shot.
