Hey group,
We're excited to drop the community favorite SARB065 or more commonly known as the Cocktail Time. We are importing these watches from Japan, so these will be shipping from the US. I was pleasantly surprised by the domed crystal in person. The curvature is about as dramatic as the Orient Bambino and it's really stunning to see the dome and dial in person. I've handled many different movements (from ETA, Miyota, Seiko, GS and even Swiss manufacture grade movements), but the hand winding action on the 6R15 is definitely one of the most enjoyable for me personally because it's quite smooth and easy to turn. Some people may not enjoy this, but I like the high-pitched, mechanical buzzing sound when you are hand winding the watch. In typical Seiko fashion, the movement isn't insanely decorated, but there is a nice striping on the rotor. (To give you a better idea, it's Cote de Geneve-esque but the stripes are much thicker on the Seiko.) The quality of the leather band is a big step up from the US market watches and the deployant buckle is the same buckle found on many Premier collection models.

Hey Chris,
I'd like to know whether these are being shipped by Seiko themselves or is some sort of gray marketing? This will be my first time ordering something through MassDrop, I'm wondering what type of shipment (express/regular) and courier you guys will be using. It'll be great to know if we can track the item.
Cheers.
ps: Lovely watch, I've also ordered custom blue strap for it as well.

We have our own fulfillment center that we use to ship Massdrop orders, if that helps :)

As I understand it, Seiko delivers the amount of products purchased on the website to the HQ of Massdrop. Then Massdrop package the products and send it to the buyers. You can read more in the FAQ section down below.
Cheers.
