It is powered by Seiko's automatic caliber, 4R35. The reliable movement operates at 21,600 BPH (3 Hertz) with hacking and hand winding capabilities. It has 23 jewels with a power reserve of approximately 41 hours through a Spron 110 mainspring.
A gentlemen's mechanical watch that can be worn on any occasion and feel proud of it especially for it's an uncanny resemblance to it's pedigree "Grand Seiko" cousins. Part of the Presage lineup of dress watches means that this is a step above the Spirit collection(SARB033) in terms of built and finishing. The SARY141/SRPD41J1 fitted in a modest 41.7mm case with a slim profile of 11.7mm. The all-new case design points the watch into a somewhat classy timepiece with short lugs at 48mm for excellent wearability.
Now, the case is a piece of art by itself. The stainless steel case bears full polished finishing found on the faceted side and the top of the lugs. The curve of its lugs is well done, allowing it to stand out from its Presage line while allowing the wearer to feel extremely comfortable due to its design. Like the SARX033 and GS, the bracelet is a nice touch of the Zen Garden Blue.

For a nice finishing touch, the watch comes fitted with an elegant 5-link steel metal bracelet, featuring a deployment clasp with push-button release. The Seiko Cocktail Time also has a signed crown and water-resistant to 50 meters.
The "Zen Garden “ dial is probably the main highlight of the watch and where it got its nickname. The sunburst blue dial that bears textured hour markers known as nashiji. The texture on the markers resembles frost that falls onto one another in the winter all over Japanese gardens, and Seiko nails it once again with the sunburst effect dial reflecting the craftmanship with peacefulness of the Japanese culture. Couple this with polished dauphine hands and seconds hand, the dial is unique in its way, and we have difficulty putting the finger on what makes this watch so attractive.
A feeling inside that makes you want to take a second glance. And to top it all, the domed sapphire crystal treated with a super-clear coating that makes the glass disappear and make time reading instantly in any lighting conditions. One can easily spend hours looking at the watch to admire the intricate details that Seiko has put into this excellent dress watch. This is a classic case of when less is more.
