Seiko Presage Cocktail Automatic L.E.

If you had thought that there would be only one cocktail-related watch release this year you would have been wrong. But unlike the Angelus pieces, these new limited edition pieces from Seiko are more easily acquired.

They may be a niche interest, but Seiko does have a recent history of cocktail-themed-and-named Presage models. Examples are the five pieces in the Cocktail Time Midnight collection, and two collaborations named for Star Bar, including this year’s honeycomb-patterned dial inspired by the bees of Ginza Star Bar 2020, a limited edition created in conjunction with its award-winning head bartender Hisashi Kishi.

It was another bartender (Shinobu Ishigaki, owner of Tokyo’s Bar Ishinohana) whose name was associated with the first Cocktail Time (SARB065), which was launched in 2010 and featured a sunburst dial and polished stainless steel case. It was popular as a bang-for-buck dress watch and discontinued in 2017, but superseded by a collection of watches under the Presage Cocktail Time banner, with models named after specific cocktails and design/ colour elements associated with the relevant beverages. They focused on the same sunburst dial (with minor exceptions) with some updated tweaks and a movement change (which also resulted in a reduced power reserve) from the 6R15 to the 4R35, and more colour options. There was also a split into two branches – the regular Presage Cocktail Time (SRP series), and ones with a date sub dial/ power reserve (SSA series).

One of the scant few nice things about 2020: Watch sizes, in most places other than TV crap, have come nomal again. Nice.
WatchGeeks will go down in watch forum history as the worst watch related site that existed. Trolls, threats, bannings, and owners and sponsors talking out of their collective asses to fleece people out of hard earned money. - Koimaster

MoT? they were really that cheap?
Yep.

I, too, am waiting for the price to drop further, Svaglic. Waiting for several to drop including the Orient King Diver reissue.

Manontime.com. Big love told us about it a while back.
It’s a forum that has a thread that just lists sales. It lists them for every crap and every good watch out there. The sale for this was around two or more weeks ago.
I check it every couple of days to see if there is anything I “need”.

You have to wade through some crap watches, but there are some good ones too. They even list sales there for the brands you would like banned. I skip through the cheapies and expensive ones and look for the middle ones.
