Hi, I live in Pattaya and there are a few Seiko traders in the area. One is in Royal Garden plaza on the second floor easy to find on second road that runs parallel with the beach it has a big red plane sticking out of the building and a hot air ballon held by wires which can be seen anywhere along the beach easy to find. The second I know of is also on second road opposite the Avenue shopping centre in a block of about 6 or 7 shop houses walking distance from Royal Garden. First location has some nice pieces as bought a Seiko which was a tribute to the Thai king and the second has a massive selection and also refurbed a mates old Seiko diver which was his fathers very cheaply. Good luck with your hunting and always remember Not everything is as it seems in Pattaya.Enjoy.

I remember years back at Pattaya, when the green monster was launched. One of the shop owners let me take a look at the watch and the boxset even though it was reserved.

just came back, got a rose gold "limited edition" somewhat similar to the monster family.
watch has a funny 24hr face on the left. and signed back stating the count number.
i am always skeptical with LE are concerned since its supposed to be 2,500 pcs.
2,500 pcs in a production line would ring alarm bells since its kinda large number for a serialized edition.
let me know yr thoughts..............!
