Hello all. New to the forum. Can anyone compare the Seiko SKX171 and Monster with the following considerations:

1. build quality
2. lume
3. bezel
4.what color would Sat or Sun day display be? Blue and Red like the Orange Monster?

i have a Black Monster and looking for another watch to keep it company. choosing between this and the Seiko SNZG15K.

thanks in advance,
Dean

I have the SKX007 which is the same as the 171 except for the scalloped bezel.

I'd say build quality is similar in both. Monster may seem superior only because it is heavier. Monster has more cuts and angles while the 171/007 has more gentle curves.

Monster has better lume but the 007/171 isn't shabby.

I would think the Monster has better bezel action, but again the 007/171 isn't shabby. I'd give the 171 the edge over the 007 because of the more intricate bezel.

They use the same movements so the day colors will be the same. EDIT: I FAIL.

1. Awesome
2. Very good. My '97 SKX171 still has great lume, it's legible all night.
3. The bezel has great grip, much better that than the SKX007/009.
4. The day/date wheels are black, Saturday is white on black, Sunday is red on black.
5. A big plus are the applied, silver markers. They look just great:
