Demonstrating exquisite Japanese craftsmanship and a rich heritage of fine mechanical watchmaking, Seiko unveiled their latest GMT offering to the Presage Sharped Edge family of watches, incorporating its signature hemp-leaf textured dial and a beautifully crafted angular case that has become a distinctive hallmark of this enchanting collection. Things get even more exciting underneath its impressive appearance with a full-fledged “true GMT” automatic in-house caliber, truly conjuring up the spirit of adventure for jet set travellers.
The Presage Sharp Edged GMT 140th Anniversary Edition Ref. SARF007 is driven by the in-house Seiko caliber 6R64 automatic GMT movement. Being a “true” GMT movement, the GMT hand can be adjusted independently without hacking the second hand, a feature truly appreciated by frequent travellers. Speaking of the second hand, the 29 jewel movement beats at a smooth 28,800 BPH (4Hz) while providing a substantial power reserve of 45 hours. The exhibition screw-in caseback allows for a view of the exceptional movement, this also equips the watch a considerable 100m of water resistance.
Intricate finishing on the multi faceted case and bracelet
The Seiko Presage Sharp Edged GMT 140th Anniversary Edition Ref. SARF007 indeed looks as sharp as its name suggests, flaunting an incredibly refined 316L stainless steel case with some sporty dimensions. Measuring in with a diameter of 42.2mm, a lug to lug distance of 49mm and a thickness of 13.7mm, the watch displays a dashing wrist presence while staying pleasantly comfortable on the wrist.
Underneath the flat scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, the Presage Sharp Edged GMT 140th Anniversary Edition Ref. SARF007 brings forth a spark of excitement with a stunning snowy white textured dial. The applied LumiBrite-treated hour indices and sword-style hands are masterfully polished, bringing a radiant beauty to the dial. Alongside the power reserve indicator resting between the 9 and 10 o’clock position and the date function at the 6 o’clock position, the distinct blue arrow GMT hand and needle second hand adds a striking touch of color to this amazing piece.
