Seiko Astron

THE FIRST ASTRON

It is no exaggeration to say that the Seiko Quartz Astron, released December 25, 1969, was a wristwatch that changed the world of timekeeping forever. With 100 times the accuracy of a standard mechanical watch, it was the timepiece that began the democratization of the quartz movement which would eventually bring accurate timekeeping.

THE SECOND REVOLUTION

The second generation Seiko Astron is a GPS solar wristwatch that was released in 2012. While the new Astron had functions and capabilities that far exceeded those of its 1969 predecessor, the name Astron was chosen to demonstrate the importance of the GPS Solar technology that it contained and to highlight the high accuracy which was just as revolutionary as that of the first Quartz Astron.

A STRONG AND DISTINCTIVE DESIGN

With a new strong and distinctive case shape, the latest Astron introduction features a perfectly sculpted octagonal titanium bezel, combining solid tailoring with the highest degree of accuracy possible in a wristwatch. Powered by Seiko’s new GPS solar caliber 3X62, with the improved receiver sensitivity required by the metallic bezel, this exceptional design offers time zone adjustment to 39 time zones, a multi-function indicator subdial for easy mode reference, and highly visible three-dimensional applied indices on the pressed pattern dial.
