Seiko Presage Open-Heart Automatic Dress Watch with 41.8mm Case #SSA379

The Presage series Seiko SSA379 is powered by the Seiko 4R39 self-winding movement that can also be hand wound and hacked. An open-heart feature at 9:00 on the dial allows you to view the balance wheel in action. The case diameter is 41.8mm and white dial is a combination of textured and smooth surfaces with black hands and Roman numeral hour markers. The black leather strap (with matching stitching) has a deployant clasp for quick on and off. A scratch resistant dual curved sapphire crystal is used along with a hardlex exhibition back that allows you to view the movement in action. The watch is water resistant to 30 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.
