I posted about the limited edition 4R36 divers last month and this month, Seiko released the three regular edition variants. The model numbers are SRP227 (shown above), SRP229 and SRP231 respectively.
The SRP231 comes on a Z22 strap while the other two are equipped with metal bracelet.
Below are the SRP229 and 231 respectively.
More pictures of the SRP231K here:
how different is this compared to SRP307? same caliber (hack-able and hand-winding)? thought targeting a SRP307 coz its a new model plus a better caliber…
Same movement and functionality. Just different design.
Just ordered a 227,
the hype is down and so are the prices 🙂
Looks like a great watch, might go for a 231 as well…
Congrats. Your patience has paid off.

Is the frankenmonster still being made? Its harder to find than it used to be, especially in some colors.
I believe they were discontinued.

Ya, just like that! You have just added fuel to the fire with that one! LOL!
But I prefer it with the Seiko wave strap . . . being a purist myself!
Not that changing the toffee coloured LE strap alduterates the watch in any way. But what the heck, at least the shroud and strap is made by Seiko, right?
Hope to change the look of my ‘Sardine Can’ and soon!
Don’t worry, the 231 comes with a black Z22 strap.
looks like a monster with a shell.
Quite true…. lol

Would like to see pictures of the metal bracelet and its caseback, if the watches is still with you.
Kevin, I took the pictures at the shop. Don’t have the bracelet models with me.
The SRP227 and the SRP231 look very nice. Being part of the Superior line, I don’t think this will be too expensive, too. I don’t really like the red accents on the SRP229, but it’s my personal preference. Also, the resin/plastic shroud somehow reminds me of G-Shocks…
I like the 231 followed by the 227. Don’t like the red accents on the 229.
+ 1. Don’t mind getting the 231 and swapping the strap and shroud with my ‘Toffee Tuna’ ;-P
Thanks for sharing this . . now my mind’s working overtime! LOL!
Something like this.
