Description Technical Specs

Seiko Presage "Cocktail Time" Automatic Dress Watch with 40.5mm Case #SRPB77

The Presage series Seiko SRPB77 (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 silver textured dial with blue hands and silver hour markers. A date display is shown at the 3 o'clock position. The stainless steel bracelet has a butterfly-style deployant clasp for easy 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.

Amazing Watch October 2, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Ohio  
I can’t say enough about the Cocktail Time, it looks so much better in person and looks like a much more expensive watch. I have a good number of mid-tier Swiss watches and I think I’m going to start looking at Seiko more often. I’ve owned other Seikos, but this just renews my interest!

Beautiful disappointment August 29, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
The dial is amazing and the finishing is good. However, the watch I received came with two major dents right above the one hour mark.

Where is quality control before shipment?

Precious Jewellery Gem July 23, 2018
Reviewer: JORGE & A. ESTEVAO from TARNEIT, Victoria Australia  
The new 2017 Seiko Presage "Cocktail Time" series is an absolute outstanding collection of wristwatches from the most successful watchmaker in the world. The very affordable #SRPB77 model is a classic gem masterly crafted in Japan now with the Seiko Trimatic System. The radiant silver-yellowish dial and silver hour markers with gun metal blue hands is a perfect combination delivering a quasi-hypnotic continuous attraction. Also, the accuracy of the automatic movement it's much better than the specs stated easily beating many swiss very expensive calibers. The beautifully crafted stainless steel bracelet is somehow a bit heavy on the wrist. Thus, I have replaced it with a genuine italian strap in lizard black leather which has even greatly enhanced the look of the watch set. And once again, I couldn't go without praising the excellent, flawless and friendly top service that Marc is delivering through his online business to watch collectors and general customers around the world.

Gorgeous Watch at a Great Price July 23, 2018
Reviewer: Jay from Lexington, KY United States  
This is just a fantastic watch for the price.

The dial is of course the star of the show, and reflects light from almost any direction. This pairs very well with the domed crystal to give it a bit of a vintage feel. Some online like to gripe about how it says Presage instead of Automatic, but it doesn't really bother me, and I feel it still looks very classy.

I'd like to see the hands be a bit more vibrant color of blue, but as is they still shine when the light hits them just right. They're a very deep blue that is hard to capture in photos that they ofter appear black under many conditions.

The bracelet is also a nice addition, and I feel it really sets this watch apart. The partially polished finish gives it a subtle two tone effect that makes the watch feel dressy in a "going out" way that feels right at home on a watch called a cocktail time.

Overall I'm quite happy with this watch and I look forward to wearing it for years to come.
