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.

    Amazing Watch & Amazing Customer Service

    Beautiful watch! One of the most captivating dials at any price! I put it on an aftermarket black alligator grain leather strap and transferred the Seiko deployment clasp over to the new strap to dress it up. I would absolutely recommend buying from Long Island Watch. Great prices, fast shipping, and most importantly will take care of any issues if there are any and answer any questions you may have. Marc's youtube videos are very helpful and I'd much rather support his business than to buy this same watch from a bigger corporation/department store that provides no additional value as Marc does. This is my second watch from Long Island Watch, and anytime they carry a watch I'll be buying in the future, I'll be buying it from them. Can't say enough good things about both this beautiful watch and Long Island Watch. Thanks again!

    Very high-quality watch. Well made. It keeps great time. I'm not crazy about the watch band, though.Ordering was very easy and service was excellent. I'm a big fan of IW.

    Great service!

    As advertised, problem-free delivery. Purchased with sapphire box crystal for future upgrade. Also ordered with a vintage strap and deployant clasp - it all fits nicely. For some the hands may be a little hard to read against the busy dial (and what a dial!) but that's the look a lot of us want - folks can always get it with the blue hands if it's a problem. Marc has always been great at responding to any questions... customer service obviously is a priority.

    Great watch

    Im a youtube subscriber of Mark’s. His videos are excellent and that led me to the site. The price was excellent and the watch is everything i hoped it would be. As many others have done i swapped out the gloss leather for a nicer strap. I used a black crocodile leather and transferred the Seiko clasp. My only negative is the tax bill i recieved in Ireland which out the price slightly higher than if i’d just bought it here in the first place.
