Seiko JDM Discontinuations Continue

A reader sent in a note that the "Land Monster" models have been discontinued.  These are SARB047, SARB048 and SARB048.  These models were released a couple of years ago and were basically the case and bracelet of the regular Monster with a 6R15 caliber inside and a land oriented hand, dial and compass bezel.

Also hearing rumors that the green dialed SARB017 Alpinist is on its last legs.  At least that one has been around for a while longer.

All these discontinuations don't bother me so much as the lack of replacements does.  Hopefully some new models will be introduced in the next few months.

I wonder if all these changes have been planned or if the events associated with the earthquake have accelerated the decision making.
