Seiko Presage "Cocktail Time" Automatic Dress Watch with 40mm Case #SRPB43

The Presage series Seiko SRPB43 (known colloquially as "Cocktail Time") is powered by the 23-jewel Seiko 4R35 self-winding movement that can also be hand wound and hacked. The case has a polished finish and a radiant textured silver dial with silvertone hands and hour markers. A date display is shown at the 3 o'clock position. The black leather strap (with blue stitching) has a deployant clasp for quick on and off. A scratch resistant Hardlex crystal is used along with an exhibition back that allows you to view the movement in action. Water resistant to 50 meters.

Diashock is a shock-resistance device. When a watch is subject to shock, as when it is dropped on a hard floor, the component most likely to be damaged is the balance-staff pivot, which is the balance wheel’s rotation axis. Even compared to other movement parts, this part is extremely thin, being only between 0.07 to 0.08mm in diameter, or about the same as a human hair. Protection from shock is therefore crucial and the Seiko solution was to create Diashock, a device that absorbs impact on one of the most vulnerable parts of the mechanical watch, the balance-staff pivot. Diashock also reduces friction to ensure optimum amplitude of the balance wheel.
Magic Lever
A Seiko invention in 1959, the Magic Lever greatly increases the winding efficiency of a watch and shortens the time needed for the main spring to become fully wound. This ingenious V-shaped lever allows all the energy generated by the oscillating weight’s motion, whether clockwise or anti-clockwise, to be transferred to the main spring. It is effective, simple and durable and contributes significantly to the longevity of the watch. The Magic Lever system has now been adopted by leading watchmakers throughout the world.
Utilized in Presage mechanical watches, Spron mainspring and hairspring alloys are exclusive to Seiko watches. Spron features superior elasticity, strength, and corrosion and heat resistance. The Spron family of alloys was originally developed jointly with the Metal Materials Laboratory of Tohoku University and, today, the high performance characteristics of Spron have led to its use in a wide range of fields, from electronics to medicine.

Great Watch! March 24, 2018
Reviewer: Joshua Smith from Newtown, PA United States  
This watch will surprisingly exceed your expectations. The dial is incredible and I love the polished finished case. The crown is gorgeous and not too big, which I was a little concerned about prior to purchasing this time piece. The movement is solid, running about -1 second a day. I’m confident the new Seiko 4R35B will be revered as a solid work horse movement in 8 years time, it just needs more exposure. Getting a new strap is a must, the stocked leather strap is very unappetizing but there are many gorgeous straps out there that compliment this timepiece. Excellent watch for the money!

Beautiful watch and unbelievable service March 20, 2018
Reviewer: Michael P. from South Park, PA United States  
I could not be happier with the watch and the pictures can't possibly do it justice. Unfortunately, I had some issues with the moment. I reached out to Marc on a Sunday evening and he responded within the hour, and he issued a return authorization with a new watch that same day. The process could not have been easier. Everything has been perfect with the second watch and I cannot recommend this company, and Marc, more highly.
