Seiko 2012 Astron GPS Solar Watch Collection

No matter where you are in the world, the Seiko 2012 Astron GPS Solar Watch Collection keeps you on split-second accurate time, automatically. It is the world’s first to offer, via GPS satellite, adjustment to all 39 official timezones. It’s also solar self-powered, drawing all the energy it needs from…light. To get the job done, a patented very tiny GPS receiver locates the watch on an internal map that divides the planet into one million timezone-tagged squares, all the while consuming startlingly little juice. Compared to existing radio-controlled watches, that recognize only up to 29 timezones and take 2 minutes to update from a stationary position, the Astron locks in in 10 seconds or less within a zone, in as little as 30 seconds at zone borders, and all while on the move. It offers atomic clock precision, to less second in 100,000 years, and has a perpetual calendar that accounts for leap years up to February 2100. Time can be updated automatically, or at the push of a button. There are six models in the collection, including ultralight high-intensity titanium for case and bracelet, stainless steel case with 4x stronger than before silicon strap, and a 2,500 piece limited edition titanium in hard-coated black. All feature ceramic bezels. For a little extra sizzle, the Astron GPS Solar is named after the original, 1969 Seiko Astron, the world’s first quartz watch. It’s all available in Octobor, starting around $1,800. Soooo, guess it’s time to fuel up the jet, or cash in those air miles, and give it a workout!
