Seiko Presage "Cocktail Time" Automatic Dress Watch with 40mm Case #SRPB46

The Presage series Seiko SRPB46 (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 rose goldtone finish and a radiant textured brown dial with rose goldtone hands and hour markers. A date display is shown at the 3 o'clock position. The brown leather strap (with matching 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 Great selection & great service October 18, 2019
Reviewer: Midwoodguy from Brooklyn, NY United States  
A pleasure to deal with Island Watch.   They have a great selection of brands in one place.  I bought a new Seiko for my son-in-law which was delivered quickly.  I would buy from them again without hesitation.

2 of 5 Seiko Presage watch purchase October 1, 2018
Reviewer: Mike Miller from Mukilteo, WA United States  
Things went fairly well. However I was told via e-mail that I would get a 5% first time customer discount and the receipt that came with the watch didn't reflect this.
For some reason they don't want to talk on the phone and everything must be done via e-mail which takes longer.

5 of 5 Fantastic dress watch July 23, 2018
Reviewer: AJ from San Francisco, CA United States  
The dial is gorgeous in how it catches the light, as are the faceted indices. I thought at over 40mm it might be too big but this actually makes you want to stare at it more! I also love the domed hardlex crystal. It creates a lovely distortion, which adds another attractive aspect to the watch. Winding it is a pleasure and it has got more compliments than some of my luxury Swiss watches. The strap is decent enough and better than the original JDM Cocktail time. For the price, this is fantastic!
