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.

5 of 5 Amazing Watch & thanks to Mark for working with me January 13, 2020
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Brigantine, NJ United States  
I actually found this watch on the Macy's website at a cheaper price.
But I've always been a fan of Island Watch thanks to youtube. If I was going to buy this watch, I would rather give my money to Island Watch rather than to Macys. I emailed Mark the price and he matched it!
He was great about the whole thing which I wasn't expecting.
Not only that, but he sent the watch to me just before Christmas!
And pictures don't do this watch justice! This watch is beautiful!
Thanks again Island Watch - I will definitely be purchasing more watches from you guys!

5 of 5 Great service December 26, 2019
Reviewer: Matthew Dube from Huntley , IL United States  
The overall experience with Island Watch was outstanding. I sent an email after hours with an inquiry and Mark from LIW promptly responded. This level of customer service is very hard to find these days. I will definitely do business with Mark at LIW again. Thank you.

5 of 5 Great! December 16, 2019
Reviewer: Richard from Irmo, SC United States  
This is a very nice and classy dress watch.  The sunburst radial pattern has striking beauty.  This particular model has minimal complications (date only) so the sunburst pattern really stands out.  Note that some photos you may find of this model Presage almost seem to show a very faint bluish tint to the dial.  The dial is white under normal lighting, which is what I wanted.  I knew in advance of my purchase that I would not like the shiny finish on the strap that comes with this watch.  So, at the same time I purchased a black Horween leather strap also from Island Watch.  With the new strap I am a very happy owner of this fine timepiece!
