Hello folks, up for sale is the Seiko All Black Frankenmonster SKZ255-K1. Bought this about 2 months ago, selling to fund another purchase. It is in excellent shape with box, tag, and instructions (Blank Warranty Card included). The crystal and case has no marks, the bracelet is in excellent shape, the only marks are the slight barely noticeable rub marks between the links. Photos and YouTube video are of the actual watch you will receive. I am looking for SOLD Offer Paypalled and Shipped in the Continental USA. Here is the video review I did on this watch....

The Frankenmonster is of the Seiko 5 Sports Divers. For those of you that do not know what the "5" represents, apparently a smart Seiko Marketing guy came up with the great idea in the 70's: to be a SEIKO 5, the watch has to have the following 5 (five) attributes (thus the name SEIKO 5): 1. Automatic, 2. Water resistant, 3. Shock resistant, 4. Date, 5. Day


The Frankenmonster apparently got it's nickname due to it's bolts on the sides that resembles the bolts on the side of Frankenstein's neck. I have also seen it nickenamed FrankenTuna as well.

This watch is LARGE, yet maintains a lower profile on the wrist than it would look off the wrist. The case measures 47mm diameter by 13mm thick. It definitely has a nice heavy feel to it on the wrist. It also features a PVD Finish on Stainless Steel bracelet and case with black plastic composite around the case. The face and bezel features a black dial with white hands and markers. The luminous hands and markers glow BRIGHT in the dark, this glowing brightness can rival the LED on my digitals. Day and Date is displayed at the 3:00 postition. The Bezel rotates counterclockwise, and the crystal uses a scratch resistant Hardlexmaterial. One of the nicest lookinf features of this watch is the nice large screwdown crown located at the 4:00 position The bracelet features a fold-over push button deployment clasp with Micro Adjustment and diver extension, the back sports a screwdown Stainless Steel caseback. The movement is a Precise 23 jewels self-winding automatic with a very smooth sweeping second hand. And This diver is 200M Water Resistant.










This watch is sporty, extremely solid, stealthy, and large. The lume is bright and stays that way for hours. I find the the bezel rotation turns nice an smooth. The bracelet is comfortable and looks great with the black PVD finish. I have worn this to the office which is business casual and get a kick out of it when people's eyes draw to my wrist.

Thanks for looking, please feel free to email or PM any questions.
