A sporty-yet-elegant styled mechanical watch can be worn on any occasion and feel proud of it, especially for it's an uncanny resemblance to its pedigree "Grand Seiko" cousins. Part of the Presage lineup of dress watches means that this is a solid step above the Spirit collection(SARB033) in terms of built and finishing. The SARX093 is fitted in a modest 39.3mm case with a slim profile of 11.1mm, along a lug to lug distance of 47.2. The case continues to hold Seiko’s proprietary “super-hard” treatment onto the whole case for greater scratch resistant. Unlike the titanium case and bracelet of the SARX055, the new Sharp Edged LE is built in stainless steel material that feels much substantial on the wrist with a well-balanced size for everyday wearing, all that in tandem of both companies ethos.
In reflecting its moniker, the case shape re-defines Seiko's classic appeal with a much "sharper" look. Chiefly the wedge-shaped angular lugs that bend at an almost 90-degree angle, giving the SARX093 much-refined looks. The sharp, yet flat case lines flow seamlessly into the case sides, with a prominent bend inward towards the case-back, in which it helps to keep the perfect proportion as an everyday watch for most wrists. Besides, the case gets a high-level polishing, with a satin-finished surface and mirror-finished polish on both the case sides and bezel. Since there are not bevelings on the watch, the satin-brushed top transits instantaneously to the polished sides with precision. In this manner, Seiko has, in fact, relive its 60s grammar-of-designs - whereby only to incorporate flat lines to shine and sparkle from every angle, that are found the early King Seikos and Grand Seikos; with the elimination of any bevels on the sides to reflect a cleaner look, in which shows off the brand's impeccable multi-finishings.

That identical texture is reproduced on the dial and combined with the tradition of Seiko’s dial craftsmanship, alongside the iconic hemp leaf pattern featured in the Sharp Edged series . With the creative printed patterns, the Presage Sharp Edged incorporates a dial that dances effortlessly with the surrounding lights, even more, due to the irregular surfaces. That said, the iridescent white dial does tone down the playfulness just a bit, in the effort to harmonize both a certain elegance with the right amount of flair.
For the handset, Seiko emphasized the "sharp edging" ethos by establishing a set of broad dauphine hands and a glossy blued hands, matching the blue minute track found on the rehaut. The rest of the applied markers and date frame continuing the SARX line spirit, with thin stripes and date windows that resemble its premium GS brethren.
