Seiko Presage SARW065 Review: A Timeless Dress Watch with Impeccable Craftsmanship

Introducing the latest addition to Seiko’s renowned Presage line, the SARW065 – a classic dress watch that exudes the epitome of Japanese craftsmanship. This limited edition timepiece features an impeccable fire-treated enamel dial, crafted by master craftsman Mitsuru Yokosawa in the land of the rising sun, and pays homage to the original Laurel from 1913.


The Seiko Presage SARW065 stays true to the original case form but with a modern twist, being slightly larger at 37.5mm wide and 12.6mm thick, yet still maintains a vintage aesthetic. The full polished case features soldered lugs and a modern AR-coated boxed sapphire crystal, making it durable and scratch-resistant.


The dial features deep black and red hour numerals and hands, with a central seconds hand and a pointer date at six o’clock, deviating from the sub-dial at the bottom which indicated seconds. The red numerals at 12 o’clock and the deerskin-like strap are notable details that have been kept from the 1913 original Laurel, adding to the watch’s nostalgic vibe. All hands are blued, providing a nice contrast with the glossy enamel dial.


The Seiko 6R27 caliber has a power reserve of 45 hours and resists magnetic fields, making it precise to its touted +25/-15 seconds a day and having a water resistance of 50 meters. The movement is discreetly concealed behind a closed and screwed case back, and the power-reserve indicator at nine o’clock can be credited to the Seiko 6R27 automatic movement.

All in all, this limited edition Presage Laurel re-edition is a timeless and elegant watch that seamlessly blends the past with Seiko’s ingenious watchmaking pedigree. The SARW065 epitomizes authentic Japanese craftsmanship and is a must-have for watch enthusiasts who appreciate quality and affordability. Treat your wrist to this impeccable timepiece and add it to your collection today!
