Seiko Serves Up Second Round of Cocktail-Inspired Presage

Seiko Serves Up Second Round of Cocktail-Inspired Presage

Postby Racer-X » December 10th 2017, 12:08pm

by Mark Bernado "At Baselworld 2017, Seiko offered up a menu of colorful new models in its all-mechanical Presage collection, with dazzling dials inspired by classic cocktails (I review the Martini-dial model here). This winter, the Japanese brand invites us to belly up to the bar for a second round, introducing a pair of new Presage timepieces designed to evoke two cocktails invented by master mixologist Hisashi Kishi, owner of the Star Bar in Tokyo’s world-famous Ginza district.

Each of the two new models is available in two references, one a simple three-hand with date (powered by Seiko’s Caliber 4R35); the other with a date subdial at 6 o’clock and a peripheral power-reserve display with a cheekily designed indicator hand in the shape of a martini-glass stem (powered by Seiko’s Caliber 4R57; both are automatic movements with 41-hour power reserves).

I really like them both, but the first one would look a lot better without the power reserve.

I miss the patterned dial but it may a bit too much with these colors.

They are nice looking except that the P/R indicator makes the watch look like a GMT Appropriately priced for how they're appointed, the usual for the JDM and European markets. If they move well and versions emerge in North America or elsewhere, history would suggest the price will go up. I couldn't find them on Seiya or Rasputen yet, I wonder what they will offer them up for.

Hey Flushes 3 you got your head on backwards baby. The original JDM version of the the Cocktail was the SARB065 running on the 6 series movement series. This year Seiko released the dumbed down Presage international version with 4 series movement and other cheap cuts.
