‘Beer Julep’ Presage Cocktail Time European & US exclusive
|Movement Type||Automatic with Manual Winding|
|Accuracy||-35/+45 seconds per day|
|Case Material||Stainless Steel|
Traditionally in Japan ‘Nomunication hour’ – a hybrid of nomu (drink) and communication, is after 5pm – when it’s cocktail hour and time to talk things over. The Seiko Presage Cocktail Time collection was inspired by this Japanese custom – with each timepiece named after drinks mixed by Hisashi Kishi, head bartender of Star Bar in Tokyo’s Ginza area.
With a dial designed to resemble the view of the drink through a glass, this timepiece is inspired by a “beer julep” cocktail. Mr Kishi mixes Japanese beer with whisky, gin, sugar syrup, lemon and basil leaves, to create a fragrant and fresh aperitif. The dial of this piece beautifully captures the sparkling crispness of the cocktail.
A striking gold-coloured case and bracelet match its dial whilst golden indices are complemented by dauphine hands and a date function at 3 o’clock. It has a three-fold clasp with a push button release, as well as a see-through exhibition case back.
This piece is 40.5mm in diameter and 11.8mm deep. It is powered by an in-house built 4R35 automatic calibre that is accurate to +45 / -35 seconds per day.
Seiko Presage: Timeless looks, precise mechanical timekeeping; minimalistic watch designs with a distinctly Japanese aesthetic.
