    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 bottom of the case bulges about the same as most modern seiko watches and won’t be significantly different to your SARG011. The 0.7mm difference is easily in the dome plexiglass.

    You already pointed out that you don't like it and would likely swap it out but one thing that does make the watch stand up a bit is the standard watch strap with the amount of padding in it especially before it is worn in and has had time to take shape.


    At the end of the day the SARB065 isn't really a casual watch, it's a dress watch that is made to be seen instead of a discrete dress watch that hides under the cuff. If that's what you want it's the perfect watch and it's unique dial design makes it a joy to wear.

    re the SARB065/SARY075:

    I've always not bought a SARB065 because I didn't like the serif "23 Jewels" font.

    Now, I don't mind that the cursive "Automatic" is replaced by the "PRESAGE AUTOMATIC". The thing that gets to me is that based on the model number, it seems that Cocktail Time will be receiving a movement downgrade to a 4RXX.

    What a dilemma...

    If anything, the original Cocktail Time will hold its value I think because:
    1. It is the original; and will be especially valuable if you can get the matching set – SARB066, SARB068
    2. It will likely have the better movement (6R15C) vs its replacement (4RXX)
    3. And just because its the original – watch people just like that

    I was planning to sell my SARG009 now I'm debating on whether I should pick up the SARB065 instead before it's gone for good.

    Is that the stock strap? How did you get rid of the deployant?

    It's actually a Fluco horween shell cordovan strap (padded version). Once you go shell cordovan you'll never go back.

    The Cocktail Time is one of the few dress watches that I really like the look of, I'm going to have to pick one up soon!

    Just ordered an 065 from that Irish eBay seller, it'll be here in April! Can't wait, got a Hirsch merino for it but I'm definitely going to need a different colour once it arrives
