    2019 Monster Redesigned Models

    2019 Monster redesigned models. The SRPD25K1 on a bracelet and SRPD27K1 on rubber strap. The movement is the 4R36, which is a downgrade from the recent models using the 6R15.



    Model: SRPD25K1 (Blue dial) / SRPD27K1 (Black dial)
    Case Material: Stainless Steel
    Movement: 4R36
    Jewels: 24
    Power Reserve: 41 hours
    Crystal: Hardlex crystal
    Bezel: Unidirectional
    Water resistance: 200m
    Diameter: 42.4mm
    Availability: June
    Price: SRPD25K1 AU$799 = 565.84 USD
    Price: SRPD27K1 AU$725 = 513.44 USD



    4R36 is the branded NH36 which I have no problem with, but not for a $500.00 watch using a glorified mineral crystal.

    I'm good... I have the original black and orange dials plus the L.E. 100th. Anniversary blue dial, blue bezel.

    Although I do like the "Ice, Ice Baby" version...

    That tune is getting old. Great marketing in some cases = greed. The bubble is going to burst sooner or later. Just like with Swatch and their ETA movements they are starting to overplay their hand.

    It worked for Rolex so I guess it''s worth a shot. I certainly don't want to pay more so I hope prices came down.
