Seiko Astron watches unite time and space like seen never before, boasting a design that reflects the grandeur of this technical achievement. The Seiko Astron receives all the power it needs from light absorbed through the dial. It uses all kinds of light and there is a power reserve indicator to show the amount of energy stored. Astron receives GPS signals even when the wearer is walking or in a vehicle. If you can see the sky, you can tell the exact local time, even on the move. Seiko Astron has a Perpetual Calendar that is correct until February 28, 2100.
Launched in 1969, the Seiko Astron first made its mark on the watch industry as the world’s first quartz watch. With the patents opened to the world, this development by Seiko watches was a powerful statement that set a global standard; the system is still used by most quartz watches today.
In 2012, Seiko Astron watches came to represent another world first: the first solar watch. The GPS solar watch set a new standard in electronic watchmaking and became a revolution for frequent travellers.
Powered only by light, Seiko Astron watches receive signals from four or more GPS satellites with just one touch of a button and automatically adjust to the correct time and date of 40 time zones. Simply step off the plane in your new location, press one button and the Astron will adjust in an instant.
