This case design was first introduced in the Spirit line and subsequently brought over to the Mechanical line. There are quite a number of variants under the Spirit line including some with Arabic hour markers.
Under the Mechanical line, it has even more variants including the RGB colour models as well as a pink gold and a black out variant.
Here’s a photo review of the pink gold variant – SARB072.

very attractive dress watch. Great photography!! Thanks sam
You’ve got to love this pink gold version, Thomas. You captured that fine difference in texture on the case and bezel, as well as the hands and index markers. Very classy and elegant dress watch this is. And that deployant croc strap makes it even more elegant.
There are many variants of this watch. I think this pink gold version is right there with the more popular SCVS001,003 and SARB035.
nice watch! I’m planning to make a purchase but i’m wondering if the rose gold is plated or is the case build out from it? (of course it isn’t ‘gold’!) Just worried that it’ll lose its color after a few years…
I believe it’s plated. The plating will wear off after many years depending on it’s quality.
