It had everything a neophyte collector could ask for: It was just like the Orange and Black Monsters that I owned and loved, except it featured a vibrant primary yellow dial with “LIMITED EDITION” in bright red, along with a cyclops over the date. Inside was a 7S36, a movement analogous to the workhorse 7S26, but with 23 jewels instead of 21. Part of the appeal was the all-capital distinction of having “LIMITED EDITION” prominently displayed in alarming red text. Back then, knowing you had a limited watch wasn’t any fun unless everyone else knew you had a limited-edition watch, too.
