Just got a new Seiko SKX173 yesterday. So far I love it. I've owned and worn an Orange Monster for the past year and really like it too. It has the metal bracelet which I like, but does make the watch a bit heavy. I decided to add a rubber strapped SKX173 to my collection just to have something different. So far it's keeping great time. My OM gains about 15 secs per day, the 173 seems to be right on the money....hope that doesn't change over time (no pun intended). These Seikos are great watches.
