This watch comes with a lacquer dial created using traditional and the Byakudan-nuri techniques. The colours scheme is inspired by the colour of the sky and moon at dawn. Continue reading →

I managed to get hold of the Seiko Presage Cocktail Time, SSA363J “Sakura Hubuki” for photo taking. This watch is limited to 3500 pieces and is basically the same watch as the earlier model with sunburst dial except it has a different dial texture. I have reviewed one of the sunburst dial models (link at the bottom of this post) so this post will be a quick photo review of the Sakura Hubuki model. Continue reading →
I bought this Seiko Cocktail Time and thought it would be nice to do a blog post on it and its predecessor, the SARB065.
The Cocktail Time models were first introduced in the Japan domestic market and came with the 6R15 movement. They were offered under the Mechanical line with the most popular model being the SARB065. The 6R Cocktail Time models were however discontinued and new 4R based models were announced during Basel World 2017. These 4R Cocktail Time models have a similar design as their 6R predecessors but are powered by the 4R35 and 4R57 movements. They are no longer JDM models and are sold worldwide under the Presage line.
