    Yes and I have my order in for the Monster version.

    There is also the Black series limited edition monster being released as well. It is a large edition of over 7000 pieces but also looks good

    Can't say I like that, the footprints look like an infant school kids drawings. Loved the great white STO, I have the turtle, and the manta ray dials look very cool too, but not this.

    I think this is a major innovation from Seiko, effortlessly surpassing lesser-brands only able to offer a new dial colour or bezel. To present footprints is I believe a true first. We've had ferns. We've had cartoon dogs. But footprints? What genius is at play here?

    Indeed, playful they may seem at first glance, but are those prints not reminiscent of dinosaur tracks? Perhaps made by a waddle of Icadyptes, ancestors of the modern penguin? From which we immediately note the etymological root... diver.

    Seiko, the true ancestor of the modern dive watch.

    I'm struggling now to consider a watch without footprints. 2021 may become known in future years as the genesis of the Prints Crisis.

    I thought they were crudely drawn Rolex crowns on the dial...

    Boring but the black Monster looks good.

    Agreed.

    I'd like to see more anthropomorphic iconography.

    We've had Snoopy.

    Next, Basil Brush surely.

    And Morph. Not Chas though - he was annoying.
