Presage Cocktail Time STAR BAR "Hou" - Ltd Ed 7000pcs Ref. SARY183

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. The Presage STAR BAR limited edition collection showcases timepieces inspired by special original cocktails from Mr. Hisashi Kishi, the head bartender of STAR BAR in Tokyo’s Ginza District, and also one of the world’s leading bartenders, as well as the first bartender to be awarded the prestigious “Contemporary Master Craftsman” award.



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 two new limited edition watches that join the Presage Cocktail Time STAR BAR collection, bringing an exciting dial in a classic size that will satisfy the need for a dress watch. One of which is the Seiko Presage Cocktail Time STAR BAR “Hou” Ref. SARY183.


Seiko Presage Cocktail Time STAR BAR "Hou" - Ltd Ed 7000pcs Ref. SARY183 / SRPF43J1

The case design of the Seiko Presage Cocktail Time STAR BAR “Hou” Ref. SARY183 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 rich hazel brown dial of the Presage Cocktail Time STAR BAR “Hou” Ref. SARY183 is inspired by STAR BAR’s original cocktail “Hou” incorporating the distinct brown hue of Kyoto’s famous hojicha, a key ingredient for the cocktail. 




Unique brown pattern sunburst dial

The dial embodies a phenomenal grained textured dial that features a pattern reminiscent of Kyoto’s tea leaves, drawing a visual element from the rich ingredient of STAR BAR’s cocktail. Additionally, the dial presents a fumé effect radiating from a dark sandy beige to deep dark brown 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 gold 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.


Limited Edition 7000 pieces

The Presage Cocktail Time STAR BAR “Hou” Ref. SARY183 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. Being a limited release of 7000 pieces, “Limited Edition” is engraved on the case back with a unique serial number to each individual piece.

Seiko has implemented a quick-release mechanism for a quick change of straps to fit different occasions. The Presage Cocktail Time STAR BAR “Hou” Ref. SARY183 comes supplied with a high quality 20mm brown leather strap with vintage stitching, complimenting its beautiful brown dial.


Display Caseback

The Seiko Presage Cocktail Time STAR BAR “Hou” Ref. SARY183 truly reflects Seiko’s craft of producing fine and gorgeous dials at this price point, the well-proportioned elegant size functions perfectly as an everyday dress watch, bringing with you an inspiration from the world of mixology. While enjoying your favorite glass of cocktail, let the visually stunning dial take your breath away every time you glance down at your wrist.
