The Astron revolution continues with two calibers and 26 models, the Astron revolution takes another important step forward for 2014. No watch on earth could better express Kintaro Hattori’s vision that Seiko should always be “one step ahead of the rest.” To connect to the GPS network using just the power of light was already a miraculous achievement. To add a chronograph and an electronic setting function in the crown, all in a smaller case size, demonstrates that Astron is re-defining the industry’s idea of what a watch can deliver. The 2014 Astron collection sets a new world standard in electronic watchmaking.
A flagship Limited Edition Astron was presented at Baselworld 2014. Featuring a titanium case with super-hard coating, white dial and faceted ceramic bezel, it is both recognizable Astron and yet distinctively new. It is offered with both a titanium with super-hard coating and black ceramic bracelet and black crocodile strap, making Astron as versatile as it is unique. Just 7,000 pieces will be made in this Limited Edition, each with its own serial number engraved on the case back.
