Seiko Presage Automatic Sharp Edged Tokiwa Green Ref. SARX079

Seiko Presage Automatic Sharp Edged Tokiwa Green Ref. The SARX079 is the newest of the Seiko home in 2020. This new Presage follows the elegance of the SARX055 with a versatile design, debuting since Baselworld 2017. The Presage Sharp Edged has become one of Seiko's most anticipated Presage models. It showcases Seiko's craftsmanship with the extraordinary design and refinement of her watch from the inside out. All of that even at an affordable price. With ease, some Seiko fans could create a new Presage Sharp with the baby Grand Seiko, as it's a high-end finish for the case and bracelet plus a bold dial finish. As a result, this is probably still the closest to the mechanical GS without paying a premium.

Digging into the heart of Seiko's JDM watches, we admire this new machine made by this well-known company. 2005 marked the year Seiko built the 6R15 engine, which was derived from the 7S26 movement. Using this extraordinary in-house-produced caliber to make JDM watches, the Seiko 7S and 6R movements were popular with Seiko collectors.

Proven to be reliable, the accurate 6R15 movement has supported the SARX055 and 057 since their launch three years ago. Always trying to improve, Seiko introduced its newest engine, caliber 6R35, an upgrade from the workhorse 6R15. To power the 62MAS Black, this movement was used to make this timepiece the first to feature the new automatic caliber of Seiko. This unit has 24 gems and a power reserve of 70 hours longer, 20 hours longer than the 7R and 6S, sustaining operation at 21,600 BPH (3 Hertz) with both hack and hand spin capability. 

Due to its eerie similarity to its "Grand Seiko" cousin, a sporty but stylish mechanical watch can be worn at any moment and take pride in it. Part of the Presage line of dress watches means that it is a solid step above the Spirit (SARB033) collection when it comes to design and finish. The SARX079 is fitted in a simple 39.3mm case with a slim 11.1mm profile, with a 47.2 lug-to-lug distance. The case continues to apply Seiko's proprietary "super-hard" treatment to the entire case for better scratch resistance. Unlike the titanium case and band SARX055, the new Sharp Edged Green is made of built-in stainless steel which feels firmer on the wrist and is a well-balanced measure for everyday use.

To reflect the moniker, the shape of the case reaffirms Seiko's classic appeal with a much "sharper" look. Especially the wedge-shaped corner lugs which bend at an angle of nearly 90 degrees, giving the SARX079 a very smooth look. The sharp yet flat shell line flows smoothly to the sides of the case, with a protruding curve towards the back of the case, which helps maintain perfect proportions as an everyday watch for most wrists. Plus, the case gets a high level of polishing, with a satin finish and mirror finish on both sides of the case and bezel. Since there is no beveling to the watch, the satin top instantly shifts to the precisely polished side. In this way, Seiko has actually revived its 60s grammar - where only to combine flat lines to shine and sparkle from every angle, which was found in King Seikos and early Grand Seikos; with bevel removal on the side to reflect a cleaner look, which shows off the flawless multi-finish of the brand.

Seiko adds another dial pattern that reflects Japanese practice, featuring a fashionable royal green textured dial. Presage Sharp Edged punched down above his weight, once again blowing his contemporaries out of the sea. This loop, Seiko uses a 3D hemp leaf pattern, which is also known as traditional Japanese Asanoha. This is a motif found in Japanese culture and application, particularly in cloth, that symbolizes prosperity and health. In fact, this hexagonal pattern reflects the “tapisserie” patterned dial of its Swiss counterpart which works, creating a beautiful, seamless look. With a creative print pattern, Presage Sharp Edged combines a dial that dances effortlessly with the surrounding light, even more so, because of the irregular surface. Nonetheless, the gleaming dark green dial does manage to balance the playfulness a little, in an attempt to match a certain amount of elegance with the right amount of flair. And hey, we recently admitted that "Green" was the new "Black," and Seiko continues to be on the right track.

For handsets, Seiko emphasizes a "sharp edge" ethos by shaping a set of wide dauphine hands and matching yellow seconds hands. What is unique here is that the handset is then done in a matte finish and a polish on each hand, accentuating a refined look with better readability. And in a situation that is rare for her more elegant Presage collection, Seiko has infused Lumibrite in both sharp hands for a better night reading, which is a welcoming touch. Other applied markers and frames continue the spirit of the SARX line, with thin lines and a date window that resembles the premium GS brothers.

This exceptional timepiece comes with a stainless steel multi-finished bracelet that stretches seamlessly from a case made of the same material, enabling it to form one perfect timepiece that ensures comfortable wear while enduring the toughest conditions. The "super-hard" plated bracelet gets a satin finish top in GS style, with a double polished center and sides. The metal bracelet is then fitted with a locking buckle marked Seiko.

Staying true to the classic style of the Presage collection, Presage Sharp Edged Tokiwa Green subtly showcases Seiko's prowess in watch design and manufacture. It refreshes the Presage collection with much-needed refinement and appearance while remaining true to Seiko's design grammar. The perfect companion for any occasion, this timepiece entices you with a very sharp design that adorns with an exciting new look.
