Amazing pics! Thanks for posting these.
I especially like that you've worn and used these limited edition pieces as they were meant to be. I think limited edition watches are usually kept in the box and never used to preserve their resale value. What's the point in that!?
I actually did the same thing with the Snow monster when I purchased it last year in Bangkok. Me and my brother both bought one and took the in the pool to break them in! We didn't have a camera at the time though. Seeing these pics has really made me regret that now..
Seeing these pics just bought back some really fond memories to me.
I love both these watches. I didn't realise Seiko themselves were using the words Monster and Sumo on these watches, but glad they are. Bangkok is a great place to get Seikos, got my original blue monster from there a few years back now.
I love both watches. However, why they put a .... plastic band on a lovely watch is anyone's guess. Plastic watchbands are known to create skin rashes, especially in hot climates like the Philippines. I changed mine on a Seiko Prospex for a NATO strap.
