Seiko has gone through decades of refinements and developing its mechanical watchmaking skills. This had led to the creation of Seiko's own all-mechanical collection; the Presage. The collection is heavily based on Seiko's heritage whereby most of the design cues are translated from the 1913 Laurel (with an enamel white dial and Arabic numerals).

As the name suggests, features a textured green dial; formulated in deep green color that is known as Nashiji . It has an uncanning resemblance to the Grand Seiko Hi-Beat 36000 GMT Ref.SBGJ005 “green tone Snowflake" dial texture, refined and subtle. What is unique about the SARY145/SSA397J1 is the pointer date subdial at 6 o'clock, deep-set into the dial with sunburst effect that gives the already very dimensional dial a sense of depth. Another impressive design is the power reserve indicator that spans from 12 to 4 o'clock, which is further sets deep into the dial. Although it might sound like a lot is going on in the dial, it never looks too busy or tired. Instead, it seems expensive and uplifting; the multifaceted applied index probably has a role to play.
The applied hour markers are inspired by the textured dial with the same pattern, and set out to be high contrast with the beautiful textured dial. Further, the hours and minutes hands are also in feuille shaped, synonymous with the rest of the Presage collection.
It is powered by Seiko's caliber 4R57. The 4R57 operates at 21,600 BPH (3 Hertz) with hacking and hand winding capabilities. It has 29 jewels with a power reserve of approximately 41 hours through a Spron 110 mainspring.
