I have owned both the J and K versions of the white mini monster, and they are exactly the same except for the text on the dial at 6 o'clock.My question for those in the know: is there a big difference between the made in Japan models and the Singapore/Malaysian versions? Seem to be subtle case dimension differences for instance. Maybe quality issues too? Don't think all models are even available as made in Japan either.
Personally for me, if Seiko made the Mini an ISO diver and put it on the Monster's bracelet, I'd own one.
These two watches have the best and worst of both worlds. The whitie Mini is far more attractive to me, but has a display back and 100M WR. In my eyes the Monster is as attractive as a mud fence but has an awesome bracelet and is a true diver. Someone put a white Mini bezel and dial on a Monster, pressure test it, and let me know where to send the money. :-d
