The Seiko Presage Automatic White "Baby GS" Ref. SARX035 is a great balance between quality and price. Many call this the baby Grand Seiko due to the high level of finishing to the case and bracelet. This is probably the closest you can get to a GS without paying the GS price.
|Seiko SARX035 with DiaShield protection|
Powered by Seiko's automatic caliber, 6R15, operating at 21,600 BPH (3 Hertzs) with hacking and hand winding capabilities. It has 23 jewels with a power reserve of 50 hours through a Spron 510 mainspring.
A gentlemen’s mechanical watch that can be worn on any ocasion and feel proud of it especially for it's uncanny resemblence to its predigre “Grand Seiko” cousins. Part of the Presage lineup of dress watches, means that this is a step above the Spirit collection(SARB033) in terms of built and finishing. The SARX033 is fitted in a modest 40.8mm case with a slim profile of 11.5mm. The stainless steel case is treated with Seiko’s DiaShield coating on the case and bracelet. This provide scratch-protection and extra corrosion resistance. While it does not make the watch scratch resistant like Dievas and Damasko, it does reduce scratches and scuffs significantly.
|Intricate finishing on the multi faceted case and bracelet|
The case is finished in multiple finishing, polished on the faceted side and fine satin brushed on the top of the lugs. And what is probably the highlight of the SARX033 is the stainless steel bracelet. Each link is made up of 5 parts. Satin brushed on the 3 main parts and polished on the connecting parts. The 2 outer parts are oval and the 3 center parts are faceted to give the bracelet a sense of quality and dimensions.
|Polished applied indexes and blue dauphine hands|
The white creamy dial coupled with polished applied indexes is intricate is probably the highlight of the SARX033. The dial is unique in its own way and we have difficulty putting a finger on it. The dial dial has a toning to it giving it a mother of pearl effect, something which we think has to be admired in perosn. Another detail worth mentioning are the deep blue dauphine hands that goes very very well with the "MOP" dial. And to top it all, the sapphire crystal treated with a super-clear coating that makes the crystal disappear and make time reading easily in any lighting conditions. One can easily spend hours looking at the watch to admire the intricate details that Seiko has put into this excellent dress watch.

Overall, if you are looking for an everyday dress watch that will not break the bank and enjoys fine finishing, the Presage Automatic White "Baby GS" Ref. SARX033 is certainly worth considering.
