Presage Cocktail Time "Negroni" Ref. SARY163

1 Review

In 2010, Seiko dazzled the watch world with the launch of their Cocktail Time collection, a line up of mechanical watches showcasing the incorporation of fine Japanese watchmaking with designs inspired by glamorous cocktail bars. This collection was created with the partnership of Shinobu Ishigaki, the proud owner of Ishinohana Bar in Shibuya district, Tokyo, and also one of the world’s most highly distinguished mixologists. The Cocktail Time collection has gained an immense cult following ever since, being sought after for its mesmerising dial and attractive value proposition.



While intricate dial designs are usually reserved for higher-end Grand Seiko pieces, many of the exquisite dials present in the Presage Cocktail collection hold strong resemblance that offers much more than the price tag suggests. With this said, Seiko introduced a new addition to the Presage Cocktail Time line that brings an exciting dial in a classic size that will satisfy the need for a dress watch.


Seiko Presage Cocktail Time "Negroni" Ref. SARY163 / SRPE41J1

The case design of the Seiko Presage Cocktail Time “Negroni” Ref. SARY163 is fundamentally the same as previous iterations of the Cocktail Time, the stainless steel case has a simple and elegant aesthetic with its fully polished finishing and narrow lugs. However, the refreshing change in diameter from 40.5mm from previous models to a tasteful 38.5mm diameter makes this new release perfect for those longing for a sub-40mm size. With a lug to lug distance of 44.5mm and a thickness of 11.8mm (Including the boxed Hardlex crystal), the smaller case profile hits a sweet spot for many wrist sizes.

Beautiful dials inspired by Cocktails is a prominent design element that lies at the heart of every Presage Cocktail model. Similarly, the burgundy red dial of the Presage Cocktail Time “Negroni” Ref. SARY163 is inspired by a cocktail by the Negroni, a popular Italian cocktail with a distinct tone of red.


The dial embodies a phenomenal Japanese Asanoha textured dial that features a diamond-like pattern spiralling out from the center. Having a subtle sunburst effect, the dial encompasses a dynamic metallic sheen that adds a visual flair as it gracefully plays with the light at different angles.


Unique red diamond-like pattern sunburst dial

On top of that, the dial presents a fumé effect radiating from a bright red to almost black at the edges of the dial - Seiko truly outdone themselves with such an amazing dial with great depth and detail.

Seiko has been renowned for their attention to detail in the dial work, the dauphine style minute and hour hands showcases a high level of finish with a contrast of polish and matte finishes which matches the faceted baton markers that incorporate a similar finish. The date complication is tucked neatly on the 3 o’clock position, keeping the symmetry of the dial.

The Presage Cocktail Time “Negroni” Ref. SARY163 runs on the ever reliable Seiko’s in-house caliber 4R36 automatic movement which features hacking and hand-winding capabilities. The 24 jewel movement has a beat rate of 21,600 beats per hour with a power reserve of about 40 hours. The golden semi-skeletonized rotor can be seen through the see-through display case back.


Display Caseback

Seiko has implemented a quick-release mechanism for a quick change of straps to fit different occasions, the Presage Cocktail Time “Negroni” Ref. SARY163 comes supplied with a high quality 20mm dark blue calf leather strap with a milled deployant clasp.

For many reasons, Seiko has dominated the watch market for affordable and value-driven timepieces. With such a gorgeous dial and an overall well executed design, the Presage Cocktail Time “Negroni” Ref. SARY163 may very well be the choice for your next trip for a drink at a fancy cocktail bar.
