Seiko presents two new creations with a new sporty design that enrich the Astron collection.
A watch features a dial inspired by the phenomenon of Nova in the night sky; a second watch, whose dial echoes the explosive power of the Supernova, is a limited edition celebrating the tenth anniversary of the Astron GPS Solar.
Astron GPS Solar is one of the most advanced wristwatches in the world. It adapts to the wearer’s time zone with the push of a button by connecting to the GPS satellite network.
It takes all the energy it needs from light alone and delivers the unsurpassed precision of an atomic clock. It automatically connects up to twice a day to the satellite network to ensure the accuracy of the time. It is the perfect watch for the global traveller.
The new Astron timepieces show a new refinement both from a design point of view and from a technical perspective.
The case has a strong and vigorous silhouette and the low center of gravity ensures that the watch adheres firmly to the wrist; at the same time the wide opening of the dial, Clearly cut three-dimensional indexes and long, tapered hands ensure that the time can be read precisely at a glance. The compact bracelet with H-shaped links also conveys a feeling of solidity and fits securely and comfortably to the wrist.
The splendor of a “Nova”
The radiating motif of the new Astron GPS Solar is inspired by the formation of a Nova in the night sky.
Nova is one of nature’s most remarkable astronomical phenomena.
Long regarded as the creation of a new star, a Nova takes the form of a sudden and dazzling light emission.
Titanium case and bracelet are as durable as stainless steel and at the same time 40% lighter.
The extra-hard coating and ceramic bezel cover protect the watch from scratches.
The sapphire crystal has a super transparent coating, which eliminates any reflection thus offering optimal visibility from any angle, while the Lumibrite on the hands and indexes ensures perfect readability even in low light conditions.
A new limited edition for the 10th anniversary of the Astron GPS Solar Inspired by the energy of a Supernova.
Built to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Seiko Astron GPS Solar, this extraordinary watch, which mounts the latest caliber GPS Solar 5X53 Seiko, has a dial with a radial pattern that echoes the explosive power of a Supernova.
When the first Astron GPS Solar watch was unveiled in 2012 it ushered in a new era for watchmaking technology.
The steady advancement of Seiko’s Solar GPS technology over the past decade has ensured that Astron’s star shines brighter than ever in the watchmaking firmament.
With its design inspired by the Supernova, the delicate lamé pattern of the dial and its cutting-edge functionality, this new limited edition Astron GPS watch of 1,500 pieces pays tribute to a great tradition.
The hands and hour markers are coated with a layer of blue Lumibrite to ensure that Astron’s exceptional precision in time detection can be appreciated even in low light conditions. The color of Lumibrite is a particular shade of blue.
