There are myriad impressive things about Seiko’s Presage collection. But if we had to single out one overriding thing that the Japanese watchmaker’s dress watches do better than almost anyone else, rather predictably, it would be their dials. Pound for pound, the Presage dress watches and their rapturous range of dials represent amazing value for money. It’s not just the design that marks these dials out as instant winners either, it’s the finishing, intricacy and attention to detail.

These two new examples, SRPD36J1 and SSA392J1, are no exception. The lustrous chocolate brown dials these watches possess are sumptuous, and as Nick Kenyon pointed out, they almost mimic that of a horse’s radiant flank. Complemented by gold coloured hour indices and Seiko’s signature dauphine handset, these Presages are downright handsome, especially when you take in to account the stainless steel cases with gold coloured finishing.
