Which Seiko watch is Seiko fans in Singapore buying these days? Answer is the SRP385J, a limited edition Presage model. This watch is powered by the 4R36 movement and comes with flat sapphire crystal. It’s dial will remind you of the 1913 Laurel, the first wrist watch made by Seiko.
Before I show you more pictures of the SRP385J, here’s a picture of the 1913 Laurel taken by me at the Seiko 130th Anniversary exhibition in Singapore.
Below is a close up dial shot of the SRP385. Notice that the 12 o’clock numeral is in red which is the same as the 1913 Laurel shown in the picture above. This watch will also remind you of the SARX011, a JDM model that is powered by the 6R15 movement and comes with white enamel dial. The SRP385J however, does not come with enamel dial.
Here’s the side profile showing the signed crown. The case design is very similar to the SARX11. However, I can’t confirm if they are exactly the same.
Watch comes with display back. There’s a red coloured ring and the words “Limited Edition” printed on the glass. As you can see, it is limited to 1500 pieces.
Here are the hang tags that came with the watch. It has a list price of SGD555 in Singapore.
Lug width: 20mm
Here are all the variants in this series. Left to right: SRP385J, SRP387J and SRP389J. Each model is limited to 1500 pieces and apparently, the white dialed SRP385J is more popular as it has the same dial colour as the 1913 Laurel.
