Seiko Astron Introduce GPS Solar Big Date with a Special Guest
Seiko Astron Introduce their New Line with Novak Djokovic Limited Edition
The Astron dress watch has arrived.
Like all Astron GPS Solar calibers, 8X42 offers the remarkable ability to adjust to local time, anywhere in the world, at the touch of a button and using just the power of light. With the addition of the big date window, the inclusion of a dual-time dial at the six o’clock position and new, slimmer hands, the new designs have a refinement that makes them as perfect for an evening out as they are for international travel. With several versions featuring roman numerals for the first time in any Astron design and with more components having mirror- finished surfaces, the Astron dress watch has truly arrived.
The 8X42 core collection comprises four models in stainless steel and three in titanium, but all offer a remarkable level of scratch resistance thanks to their ceramic bezels, sapphire crystals and the superhard coatings that they all share. Indeed, a new coating technology allows even the rose gold tone designs to be highly resistant to scratches, ensuring that the luxury look of every Astron 8X42 watch lasts as long as possible.
The 8X42 collection is completed by a very special limited edition made in honor of one of the great sporting achievements of our time. By winning the 2016 French Open, Seiko’s partner Novak Djokovic joined the small and very select group of players to have won a Career Grand Slam in tennis. In fact, Novak held all four titles at once, an even rarer feat. We are delighted to use the new caliber as the base for a design that celebrates Novak’s remarkable achievement.
