Casa de Loaf-2021 First Watch

Post by biglove » January 30th 2021, 12:33pm

Seiko Presage Automatic Sharp Edged Tokiwa Green Ref. SARX079 purchased new from Gnomon.

Photos don't do the watch dial or finishing justice. Finishing sits well above the SARB series but not up to par with GS. The dial, minute markers and hands, on the other hand, are damn close to GS quality.

This one features the 24 jewel 6R35 movement with a 21,600 BPH (3 Hertz) with hacking, hand winding and a 70 hour power reserve. Rated at +25/-15.

Signed push crown with WR 100m.

Sapphire crystal, AR on inner surface.

Lumibrite on hands and hour markers.

Stainless bracelet and case with brushed and polished surfaces with "super hard coating." Features the freaking pin and collar system on links, thanks Seiko, and a single half link and one micro-adjustment on the clasp. The clasp is actually rather impressive in fit and finish.

Wears a bit larger in width than the 39.3mm diameter would indicate. Is 47.2mm lug to lug, 11.1mm thick. Surprisingly heavy but very comfortable.

Unless you step up to GS, I don't believe there is a better finished Seiko offering with what these offer. The lowest new model price mechanical GS sits north of $5K. No doubt worth it but OUCH!

I give this a solid thumbs up. For $890, I am very pleased.

Very nice. I had that one and the snowflake version in my cart but my daughter reminded me that bills come due and I am the one paying for them. With payment for the forum coming up next month and the payoffs for my cell phones after 18 months of use, maybe in March.
