Ishinohana Bar and Hisashi Kishi have been featured on Anthony Bourdain’s series, “No Reservations,” and his carefully made and elaborately garnished cocktails were the inspiration behind the original Cocktail Time watches, with their colorful sunburst dials. The first watches in this series comprised eight models, each inspired by a different cocktail and each with its own color scheme and textured dial.
Genuine Tuscan leather watch strap, 100% handcrafted in Italy. Luxury Italian hides are tanned using traditional, natural methods, without chemical coloring & chrome. It features two size punch holes and a matching leather lining as a typical racing strap. Italian leather can retain the extraordinary tensile strength even split into thinner substances.
One of the most popular and known model from the Presage cocktail series would be the “Fuyugeshiki”, meaning “A Clear Winter Day”. For the “Fuyugeshiki”, which is available in a series of three different models, which are identified as the following:

The characteristic of nylon watchband is durable, lightweight and comfortable. This strong texture woven nylon fabric has been selected to make this watch strap which brings out the embossed effect.

Genuine Mississippians Alligator skins leather watch strap, 100% handcrafted in Italy. Know necessarily, it is that the square scales of the stomach of the alligator are the ones that are expensive. Alligator leather is tanned using Italian methodology, the incredible vintage touch & dye, others are not able to be compared with.
Overall, the cocktail series watches are an awesome bargain, whether you’re strictly going for the looks, or the specifications, its worth every penny. However, we understand that its a lot of money for some to invest in a 600.00USD price range watch. Although you can pay the same amount of money for a designer brand, or even a mechanical watch from a micro-brand, but seriously, Its almost certain that when you pay for a Seiko, it will last you not only for a couple of years, but decades or perhaps even longer. Picking up anyone of the watches from the cocktail series can be a first step into the world of Seiko. It can perhaps lead your way into upgrading your next time piece to a more exquisite and sophisticated movements like 8L35 from the Seiko Tuna, or better yet, the 9S63 movement from the Grand Seiko collections.
