Seiko Presage SRPB43 - Inspired by Cocktail Bars

Occasionally, after a long day of walking the halls of Baselworld, nothing hits the spot like a chilled, dry, dirty martini. Unfortunately — Switzerland being more of a wine-and-beer country than a cocktail one — a good one can be hard to come by unless you’re at a high-end, international-style hotel, where the bartenders are fluent in classic American mixology. Fortunately, at this year’s Baselworld back in March, Seiko provided a haven for weary (and thirsty) watch journalists and retailers right in its booth — an honest-to-gosh cocktail bar with a Japanese bartender, mixing three specialty drinks for guests. The bar setting — and the chosen drinks — were not random, but inspired by new models in Seiko’s recently introduced and already extraordinarily successful Presage collection, whose dazzling dial colors, Seiko says, are inspired by classic cocktails.

Didn't the original offerings have the 6r15 movement?

Yup. Seiko dumbed these down.

Movement downgrade or not the dial on my blue model is absolutely beyond compare.

Of course the Seiko bracelets are shit but this one is better than most save for the butterfly clasp metal being damned near paper thin.

I would certainly buy it again. Would be even better about 4mm smaller case width.
