THE EVOLUTION CONTINUES
GPS SOLAR SYSTEM
Based on atomic clock accuracy, the GPS Solar System calibre offers the ultimate time keeping precision. The solar charging technology ensures that battery changes are not required and the seamless adjustment to the world’s 40 time zones through the smart sensor offers the utmost accuracy and easeof use. The unique link ring antenna guarantees consistent worldwide signal strength and users can also enjoy witnessing the watch’s ability to connectto different satellites via its multifunction display.
DUAL TIME FUNCTIONALITY
Designed specifically for the global traveller and those crossing multiple time zones, the watch is now equipped with world-class dual time display functionality. With the press of a button, users can simultaneously display the current time based on any of the world’s 40 time zones they are in along with their home time zone by utilising the sub-dial at the all-new 6 o’clock position. The watch also continues to offer the many benefits of the Perpetual Calendar function, a key feature since the very first Astron release in 2012.
TRAVEL THE WORLD IN STYLE AND COMFORT
The Dual-Time calibre isoffered in a collection of eight main designs, all of which are distinctively and recognisably Astron. As with every Astron watch, the dials are clean,clear and easy to read. The cases are polished by hand, using Seiko’s unique Zaratsu technique, to be distortion-free, so that there is sharpness in every light reflection. The wide range of dial colours is made possible by Seiko’s mastery of energy management in watchmaking. These unique dials are the product of engineering excellence; Seiko’s own specially designed GPS module is so energy efficient that many different colours are possible. The bracelets are composed of individually designed links and are therefore tapered perfectly to the wrist for maximum comfort, however and wherever you may travel. There are five designs in titanium cases and three in steel.
GUIGIARO DESIGN – ITALIAN FLAIR
Limited to just 5,000 watches, the 2nd generation 8X series once again features the unique design ascetics of Italian maestro Giorgetto Giugiaro in collaboration with his world renowned team. Brimming with Italian flair much like a concept car, the avant-garde architecture includes Arabic numerals, stripe patterns on the dial face and a special tyre wheel motif on the back of the watch. Strap options include a titanium band with white ceramics along with an all-natural interchangeable crocodile leather band that features red lining and beautiful 3 colour Italian inspired stitching.
