Caliber 8X22 is a notable advance in Seiko’s GPS Solar technology. The case is slimmer than any other GPS Solar watch1, even slimmer than all other Astron models (the depth is just 12.4mm compared to 13.3mm in the other 8X series). As a result, the antenna that receives the GPS signals is inevitably smaller, but Seiko has managed to increase the processing power of the circuit in the GPS module so that the sensitivity of the antenna is unchanged and the reception of GPS signals is as easy for the world traveller as ever.

When GPS signals are received, the second hand starts moving, indicates the number of satellites, and then displays the current time.
It is an emotional moment, feeling an identification with GPS satellites 20000km away.

GPS® Solar

  • The world’s first GPS solar watch
  • Automatic Time adjustment
  • High reception performance of an exclusive Seiko ring antenna
  • The world’s first GPS solar watch

    By connecting to the GPS network, the new Astron adjusts at the touch of a button to your time zone* and, by taking all the energy it needs from light alone, never needs a battery change.

    • For the time zone information of your caliber, please refer to here. If there are changes in the region/time zone, manual time zone selection may be required.
  • Automatic Time adjustment

    Whenever the dial is exposed to bright light, the watch automatically receives GPS signals. When the watch is concealed under a sleeve and the dial cannot receive enough light, the watch stores the time of the previous successful manual time adjustment or time zone adjustment, and automatically starts time adjustment at the same time.

  • High reception performance of an exclusive Seiko ring antenna

    An exclusive Seiko ring antenna placed under the dial ring is suitable for automatic reception as it can easily receive signals regardless of posture.

  • In- flight mode
  • DST (Daylight Saving Time)
  • In- flight mode

    In order to avoid any interference with the operation of electronic devices in an airplane, in-flight mode is available when boarding a plane. In the in-flight mode, the GPS signal reception function will not work.

  • DST (Daylight Saving Time)

    In areas where DST (Daylight Saving Time) applies, the time can be adjusted manually.
