Concept

A legend re-born.

The watch incorporates the remarkable Astron 8X82 chronograph caliber and combines the extraordinary performance of Seiko’s GPS Solar technology with the outstanding and greatly admired Giugiaro design concept that first saw the light of day in 1983 when Seiko’s quartz chronograph was at the cutting edge of watch technology, just as Astron is today.

Giorgetto Giugiaro

GIUGIARO DESIGN Giugiaro is a Maestro of Car and Industrial design.
He established Giugiaro Design in 1981 as a continuation of the design experience started in the seventies within Italdesign (1974).

Features

The watch is designed for motor sport, with the offset case allowing the chronograph buttons to be used with ease, even when travelling at speed on a motor cycle.

Features

The inspiration from Giugiaro design

The color combination of black, red and green is pure Giugiaro as is the unique design of the hands and the markers.

Features

The dynamism and tradition of Seiko and Giugiaro Design

The strong, sports look of the 1983 original is clear to see in every detail of the new creation, but it has been updated for the next generation, combining Seiko’s GPS Solar technology.

Features

Wheel design case back

The power of the dial design is reflected on the case back where a wheel design motif frames the individual serial number.

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.
