The 1969 Quartz Astron 50th Anniversary Limited Edition. A revolution in precision timekeeping. Fifty years ago, Seiko transformed watchmaking with the first commercially available quartz watch, the Astron. Today, Seiko takes another step forward with the new Astron, reflecting the strong, sleek lines of the 1969 original, while providing the highest degree of accuracy possible in a wristwatch — effortlessly. This Limited Edition, available only in a controlled production run of 1,500, with the serial number engraved on each caseback, celebrates a half century of advanced technology. GPS controlled for high-speed time and time zone adjustment to 39 time zones, with daylight saving time function, this remarkable timepiece includes a perpetual day and date calendar correct to the year 2100, dual time with time transfer function, and am/pm indicators. The magnetic resistance is 4,800A/m and, to ensure smooth operation, the watch is equipped with a signal reception result indicator and power save function. The solar cell is powered by light energy, with no battery change required. The rich black dial also features a date calendar and LumiBrite hands and markers, and is topped by a dual-curved sapphire crystal with super-clear coating. Crafted of stainless steel with a black super-hard coating for added durability, black ceramic bezel and secure screwdown caseback. Includes a stainless steel bracelet with black super-hard coating and an additional extra-strength silicone strap, both with tri-fold push button release clasp. 10 bar, 100m Water Resistant.
