Well, I didn’t get the anything. Why? Because I got both of them!
The most surprising thing about the watches to me is the lume. I always just assumed that Seiko Lumibrite must be inferior to Swiss Superluminova, because the lume on my GS'es sucks - it’s totally weak sauce. But, the hands of the Baby Alpinist glow super bright. And the hands and indices on the Monster are practically radioactive. It’s awesome.
Just look at that lume!!!
The build quality is out of this world! I can’t believe that these watches cost what they cost. I mean, I just can’t imagine any other brand providing this level of build quality, reliability, and fit and finish at this price point. Craziness.
