Seiko Introduces Limited Edition Astron Gps Satellite Positioning Solar Energy Chronograph Designed By Georgiaro
Japanese watchmaker Seiko joins hands with Giugiaro Design of Italy to jointly design and launch a new Astron GPS satellite solar chronograph. The watch is equipped with the 8X movement, which debuted at the 2014 Basel Show. With the touch of a button, you can easily adjust the exact time in your time zone. It is an ideal sports watch for global travelers.
The titanium case is sleek and light, and the newly designed Arabic hour markers and color embellishment not only make the dial information clear and easy to read, but also add a sporting style that global travelers appreciate. This model is equipped with a precision timing function of up to 6 hours. The inner ring of the dial is equipped with the coordinated universal time (UTC) time zone mark. The Tachymeter lap can also calculate the instant speed.
The caseback is modelled on a sports car wheel and is adorned with the ‘Giugiaro Design Limited Edition’ mark and its individual number. Each watch is equipped with a ceramic-inlaid titanium bracelet and a separate leather strap for easy wearer replacement. Advanced appearance and high-tech content complement each other. Precision timing performance and racing style design are combined to make this avant-garde work.
In the early 1980s, Seiko commissioned Giorgetto Giugiaro to conceive and design a newly released world’s first quartz chronograph. Since then, the cooperation between the two sides has developed vigorously and achieved fruitful results. Four (two pointer and two digital) series design solutions have come out one after another, and they were very successful when they were launched in 1983. Ten years later, the two sides worked together again and released the Macchina Sportiva series in 1996. For the first time, the collection draws design inspiration from motorsport and is widely accepted by consumers around the world, and is still highly regarded today by motorsport enthusiasts and watch collectors.
This new Astron GPS satellite positioning solar energy chronograph will be launched this summer with six other Astron chronographs, with a limited edition of 5,000 pieces worldwide. The launch of these new timepieces will further enrich the different taste options of the Astron chronograph series, ranging from luxurious leather strap models to rugged and durable models designed for sports.
