Presage Craftsmanship Urushi Black Ref. SARX107

Write a review

In the early 1910s, the Japanese watch manufacturer debuted its first mechanical watch. In continuation of its development, Seiko has launched its automatic caliber in the 1950s, along with its marvel, which is the creation of its shock absorbing system for the movement; known as the "Diashock" system.

Seiko has gone through a decade of refining and developing its mechanical watchmaking skills. These had led to the creation of Seiko's all-mechanical collection; the Presage.

In the Presage line consist of Seiko’s leading mechanical watch collection at nearly every price point imaginable, like the caliber 4R, 6R and 8R, and today we introduced to you a new series, the Seiko Presage Craftsmanship Urushi Black Ref. SARX107. This is a classic dress watch entirely made in-house by Seiko, and features an impeccable  deep black lacquered dial crafted in the land of the rising sun.

Seiko Presage Craftsmanship Urushi Black Ref. SARX107
Seiko is both a genius watchmaker and master in craftsmanship, not just in reliability and quality of their timepieces, but also in their aesthetics and craftsmanship. Therefore today we will be focusing more on the latter.

This black Urushi SARX107 is brought to life by master Isshu Tamura and his team, who practice a centuries-old art – one in which deemed older than watchmaking itself – crafting Urushi lacquer that gains in strength as the time passes.

Born in 1957, Isshu Tamura trained in the traditional Kaga Maki-e gold lacquer technique of Kanazawa. He hones his skills in this particular technique, setting out to produce unparalleled original works of art. He has executed his technique in Kaga Maki-e not only in lacquerware, but also in the creation of other products like both luxury fountain pens and wristwatches in which have received worldwide acclaim, thanks to their elaborate detail and fine beauty.

Intricate finishing on the multi faceted case and bracelet

The Presage Craftsmanship measures a 40.2mm in diameter with a thickness of 12.1mm and lug-to-lug distance of 48mm, making it very wearable as an everyday watch on any occasion. Like its name suggested, the SARX107 features a black vitreous lacquered dial, paired together with its gold accent second hand and a date display, it allows the watch to be kept in-sync with the universal coolness of ” black and gold” combination.

Further, underneath the domed sapphire crustal belies the hour markers are stark white batons, painted directly onto its enamel dial surface repeatedly at least 10 times, so to achieve great depth and contrast. One can easily spend hours looking at the watch to admire the intricate details that Seiko has put into this excellent dress watch, withstanding the very close scrutiny, and able to pass with flying colors.

A gentlemen’s mechanical watch like this is an uncanny resemblance to its 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 elegant touch is completed with its 20mm multi-link bracelet with Seiko’s deployant clasp system.

Seiko's Caliber 6R55

Always seeking to improve, Seiko unveils its latest engine, the 6R55 caliber, an upgrade from the workhorse 6R15 and 2019’s 6R35. This movement is totally new in 2023, making this timepiece the first few to feature Seiko's new automatic caliber. Maintaining operation at 21,600 BPH (3 Hertz) with hacking and hand winding capabilities, this engine has 24 jewels and a longer power reserve of 72 hours (3 days), a whopping 22 hours more than the 7R and 6S.

While Japan is synonymous with longstanding cultural history. Valuing their tradition till today, in terms of design and manufacturing values. The Seiko Presage Craftsmanship Urushi Black Ref. SARX107 is an every day, elegant dress watch that is reasonable priced. It showcases Seiko's ability to combine their manufacturing capabilities with Japan's own everlasting culture. This beauty from the Presage collection has offered authentic traditional craftsmanship, in this case, in the form of a white enamel dial fired by true Japanese enameler, pairing with Seiko’s state-of-the-art in-house movement.
