    I wouldn't be surprised if the rest of the Mechanical line were cancelled along with the SARB065 and SARG009/011.

    If you're interested in a SARB033/035 or SARB017, I wouldn't take for granted that they will be around for much longer.

    It's obvious that Seiko has been prioritizing the Presage line, including releasing models that no doubt compete with even beloved watches like the SARB033/035. So as not to cannibalize their own sales, models will be discontinued, and the Mechanical line is getting old.

    I think they already came out with a new line of Alpinist after the SARB013,15 & 17. It's the SARB059 and SARB061.

    Oops, this thread has just caused me to order a new Cocktail Time (it wasn't my fault) a few years after selling my old one. I'll be keeping it on the stock strap too!

    Popular Seiko Models Discontinued -- Including SARB065 Cocktail Time

    It's sad to see the Cocktail go.

    I'm glad I just snagged a SARG009 before it got put on the chopping block. That will stay in the collection long term.

    It's good and bad what Seiko are doing here. It seems that they're consolidating their nicer watches into the Presage lineup. I think that means that over the next few years they'll be making a push for more Presage models to come to the USDM. That kind of sucks for us WIS who used to gobble up the JDM watches quietly at a decent price point. Once more Presage watches come to the US who knows what will happen to the pricing.

    This thread finally gave me the courage to buy a Cocktail Time as well, but it's my first time buying one. Had it for two days now and love it.

    I've had mine for three days now and love it...Definitely a keeper and better fit and finish then the much more expensive Baume & Mercier Classima I recently sold. I think that if the Cocktail Time had a Swiss name on the dial (and a better stock strap) it would sell for much more at the retail level - just my humble opinion.
