    Re: Popular Seiko Models Discontinued -- Including SARB065 Cocktail Time

    After years of liking and not buying I finally caved on a Sarg009 last night. So many things Seiko got right on this one that I love in a watch. The look, matching date wheel, domed sapphire, bracelet. Just hope I do not fall into one of those that can not get a good fit on the bracelet as I am (with few exceptions) a bracelet guy.
    I'm usually posting from my cell phone so please excuse any typing mistakes.

    Thanks for posting this up.

    Just ordered a SARB065 to give to my brother as a birthday gift for next month, he always said how much he likes mine (never says it about any of my other watches) so I thought it would be a nice gift.

    Um, evidence please? Because from what I can tell, the crowns are also hugely different...

    I heard they were adding some ugly badging to the dial, like they did with the Shogun.

    And the crown is changing from a mini-onion crown (looks more like a Chinese mooncake to me) to a cupcake crown (happy, no-fi?). Oh and the movement will be downgraded (or upgraded) to a 4R35 or some new variant of the 4R movement because it appears to have been given the SARY075 model number. I'm curious as to what the price will be compared to the true Cocktail Time if the Presage line is indeed going to be officially made available outside of Japan.

    Hate and love you guys, saw this thread and ordered sarg009 and sarb065 even though I am wearing a blumo and looking at some eco drive watch as a dress watch.

    Already received the cocktail time within 2 days from japan and only opened the box, wind it up to ensure it is working. Then put it into the drawer.

    I'm on the fence on picking up a sarb065. I'm intrigued by the unique color of the dial and the blue hands. I'm okay with the chintzy strap as that's easy to swap out anytime.

    The 40mm size is ok as most my watches are 40-42mm.


    The thickness worries me though. At 13mm, we are talking chronograph thickness. I have sarg 011 which I already consider thick enough for a casual watch.

    Is most of the thickness in the dome plexiglass, or does the back of the case bulge out a lot?

    Got reference I usually wear dresses shirts, but no suits.

    The cocktail time is not blue hands.

    The second hand is in blue though. It would be a big downgrade I guess if they use 4R35 instead of 6r15. Are the power reserves for 4r3x around 42hours? The 6r15 is 50hrs power reserve. If i'm not wrong, the new cocktail will have the word Presage on the dial and jewels. Not sure if there would be the word automatic.
