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
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.
Spron
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.

Exemplary Service December 20, 2017
Reviewer: E W from BC  
Purchased a watch for a gift, to be shipped to Canada.  Tracking the package, it indicated that it had arrived.  However, I had not received the package despite the tracker indicating it was delivered 2 days prior.  

I contacted Canada Post to let them know that the package was in fact not yet sent.  The employee indicated it may have been stolen and to initiate an investigation.  Feeling like I was out of luck, I contacted Island Watch (Marc) to initiate an investigation so I could get a refund eventually.

Marc sent out another watch immediately with next day delivery to ensure I would have it in time.  

Probably one of the best customer experiences I've ever had.

Also, watch is perfect.  well packaged, and exactly as I expected.  That was my first order from Island Watch, but definitely not my last after that.
