Presage 10th Anniversary
I missed the boat on the Presage 10th Anniversary watches and I now I really want one. Since I got the SCVS013, my need for a dress watch was curbed temporarily. If I could move my extra Spork, I would probably purchase this SARX011 if I came across one. Well, I found one on eBay yesterday. Unfortunately, I don’t really have the funds to pick it up yet.
The SARX011 was released earlier this year as a limited edition piece Only 500 were made. It shares the same movement as the Blue Spark, the 6R15 with 23 jewels. Though it’s slightly larger and taller than the SCVS013. I haven’t been able to find any good pictures to see the croc band up close. It comes on a folding deployment clasp. I’d hope that the band is nicer than the ones that come on the more affordable Seikos, such as the SNDC87. At this price point, it should be as nice as the one on the Blue Spark.
The enamel dial features narrow roman numeral markers. I have seen the newer line of Presages and I’m not particularly fond of the style of roman numerals on those. I really like the unique shape of the hour and minute hands. If you know me, you know I love the long thin second hand.
