    Seiko Monster Prices are Crazy!

    I can remember being able to get a second or third generation Black or Orange Monster for $200 or close to it all day. Now they're way more. So, are they way overpriced now or have they been way too cheap in the past?

    Pics and opinions are appreciated!

    I can remember buying some at $125-135.

    Nothing is overpriced if it sells but I’m certainly not a buyer anymore.

    I got my Dracula for $250 Canadian last year and thought it was a fair price. Pretty amazed they're selling for $500 plus now.

    One of the first watches I ever bought on WUS sales forum was a first gen minty Orange Monster for $125 shipped in October of 2014. Sold it for $119 shipped in December of 2014. Bought and sold another one in 2016 in the $150 range.

    They were so ugly to me in 2013 that I didn't take a second look. They look like gold to me now which I cannot afford.

    I think they are worth $300 in their uppermost range. Beyond that, there are better deals to be had. I really wanted the Zimbe Monster, but I refuse to pay over $500 for any Monster, I don't care how rare it is. Let these greedy sellers hold on to their ultra rare Monsters. The price will come back down to reasonable. Part of what made them so desirable was the fact they were so much watch for the money IMO.

    I am very happy I got mine before they sky rocketed in value. It has been a very fun watch to customize. I don't see it going anywhere, no matter how much someone offered me. The pointed teeth version is awesome!!! :)

    I’m glad I purchased mine when I did, it was one of the last gen 2.5 shipments Long Island Watch offered for sale. Shame these are no longer available at reasonable prices.
