Seiko’s Presage ‘Cocktail Time’ collection has been a hit ever since its release, and it continues to be popular among watch enthusiasts even to this day. The success of the ‘Cocktail Time’ collection are known for its use of distinct colors and designs for watches that are mainly suited for formal attire.
This year, Seiko’s Presage ‘Cocktail Time’ line have released three new models, that comes in an Arabic numeric dial for the first time in a smaller case size of 38.5mm. These numerals are modelled after the label text on vintage liquor bottles. The three new models are referenced as follows; SRPE41 “Negroni,” SRPE43 “Old Clock,” and the Seiko Presage SRPE45 “Mojito.”
Between the three models, the SRPE45J1 ‘Mojito’ would be my preferred selection. As a fan of green dials, complimented with golden hands and markers, which adds a vintage feel to the dial.
