Seiko adds a new calibre to its popular Astron line featuring GPS Solar technology.

Seiko launched its GPS Solar technology in the Astron collection in 2012 and its practicality for travellers via advanced functions and refined design has made the watches enduringly popular.

Now the world-famous Japanese brand adds a new calibre is added to the range. The new Calibre 8X22 allows a slimmer case and a clean, uncluttered dial layout in the new Astrons. Seiko says the case is slimmer than any other GPS Solar watch at 12.4mm depth. Despite the GPS antenna being smaller, its processing power has increased, meaning the world traveller can receive GPS signals easier than ever, wherever they are.

The new Astron adjusts to the local time in every time zone of the world, with an accuracy of one second every 100,000 years, using just the power of light. The dial of the new World-Time watch is simple, with all the indicators in one small sub-dial, adding to its simple beauty.

The new collection includes a limited edition piece (SSE091J, RRP $4,100, pictured, above) identifiable through its dark mother-of-pearl dial. The Calibre 8X22 is also available in three others designs (SSE087J, RRP $2,700, below), SSE089J ($3,000), SSE096J ($2,700, bottom), all with titanium cases, and taking the full Astron GPS Solar collection to over 50 models.
