This fall, Seiko brings time-keeping to a whole new level with its newly unveiled Astron GPS Solar watch. After years of meticulous research and development, Seiko succeeded in combining their super-efficient solar technology with a groundbreaking miniaturized GPS receiver, allowing the wearer to get up-to-the-second date and time data instantly.
Perfect for international travellers, the new Astron will sync with the proper time via the global satellite system whether on the ground or in the air; at the beach or during that important business meeting in literally any time zone on the globe. It even accounts for Daylight Savings Time and has a perpetual calendar that will be correct until the end of this century!
The highly-effective solar cell (shown below) absorbs light through the dial from all sources, be it the sun or indoor light, and keeps the watch running nonstop with a long-lasting power reserve–and there’s no need to ever replace a battery! This is truly a timepiece that won’t waste your time.
Other great features include a dual time sub-dial, and an ultra clear double-sided anti-reflective sapphire crystal for superior readability, even in extremely bright conditions, practically making glare a non-issue.
Seiko will be offering this brilliant model in multiple styles like the sleek and strong titanium (pictured above) in a limited edition of 2500 pieces, as well as its dependable stainless steel counterparts in a metal bracelet or extra-strength silicon strap.
