While Seiko’s more lux­ury-fo­cused sib­ling, Grand Seiko, re­leased a 20th-an­niver­sary, lim­ited-edi­tion watch with a mo­saic brown dial (SBGR311G) at Basel­world this year, our fo­cus is on a more ac­ces­si­ble, but equally in­trigu­ing, watch re­leased by Seiko in 2017. The Seiko Presage Cock­tail Time was ini­tially a se­ries of eight watches that in­cluded this caramel-col­ored ver­sion (SRPD46J1) in­spired by the “Man­hat­tan” cock­tail. The dial re­calls a birds-eye view of a cock­tail glass with its ridged edges ap­ply­ing a sort-of rip­ple ef­fect. Seiko says that each dial re­ceives seven lay­ers of gloss fin­ish to achieve its shim­mer­ing ap­pear­ance. At 3 o’clock, there’s a small, color-match­ing date win­dow. The stain­lesssteel case comes in at 40. 5 mm and has a pol­ished fin­ish. The best part of it all? The Seiko Cock­tail Time SRPD46J1 is priced at only $425.
