Seiko Astron Watch Review The Earth At Night
Tuesday - 28 June 2016
Seiko Astron are renowned for their title as the inventor of the first GPS solar timepiece, but they have taken this innovation to a whole new level with the mesmerising aesthetic and unmatchable technology of their new Seiko Astron The Earth At Night watch that is limited to only 3500 pieces.
The enchanting dark mother of pearl dial is its defining characteristic that was inspired by our mysterious earth seen from space as it glows and glistens during the night. The use of the enchanting lilac gemstone is a silent tribute to the power of technology that hides beneath it.
The GPS Solar module only requires a small amount of power that comes from light absorbed through the dial which then powers the 8X22 calibre movement which connects to four GPS satellites to identify the time zone and adjust the hands on the dial to reflect the correct time with a precision of one second per 100,000 years.
The watch continues to impress with a perpetual calendar feature at 3 o clock and black hands and markers housed beneath scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass treated with an antireflective coating. The case is crafted from titanium with a super hard black coating which has been reduced in size compared to older Seiko Astron watches to 44.8mm in diameter and just 12.4mm in thickness. You also get two strap choices with your purchase, a black crocodile strap with a threefold clasp and push button release and a highly polished titanium bracelet with black ceramic inserts.
This watch is expected to be released in September 2016, but you can place your pre-orders for this item here to allocate yourself one of the very first pieces.
