Product details

An homage to the Quartz Astron

The new Astron GPS Solar is an homage to the original Quartz Astron from 1969. With a design that - like the original - is distinguished by the curved lines of a slim case, the wide 'lugs' and the narrow bezel. A classic design that stands the test of time, combined with highly advanced technology.

Gps solar

At the push of a button and using only light-generated energy, an Astron GPS Solar watch can contact 4 or more satellites, identify the time zone and set the hands above the dial to the correct local time. With a maximum deviation of 1 second per 100,000 years.

Seiko Solar uses an ultra-efficient Solar cell capable of creating energy from all types of light, not just sunlight. This energy is stored in a very small rechargeable battery that lasts many times longer than conventional batteries. The movement is protected against overcharging.

Caliber 5X53

Seiko introduces the new 5X GPS Solar caliber. The world's most advanced GPS Solar caliber ever. The new Astron GPS Solar is faster, even easier to operate and offers better reception capability. Energy consumption has also been optimized.

The Seiko 5X53 caliber is the prestigious analog GPS Solar DualTime caliber. This watch can set itself to the correct time zone anywhere in the world with a simple push of a button, thus displaying the correct local time. On the dial, the GPS signal indicator shows whether the watch connects to the global GPS network. It also shows how many satellites the watch is connecting to. To determine the correct time zone the watch needs to be connected to at least 4 satellites. If the watch is fully charged it will connect to one satellite up to 2x per day to correct the time. This makes the 5X53 GPS Solar watch extremely accurate, with a deviation of only 1 second per 100,000 years. If necessary, the local time can also be changed manually.

The smart Perpetual Calendar function ensures that the watch always shows the correct date up to the year 2100. The watch features an in-flight mode, daylight saving time can be automatically adjusted and a second time can be set. The second time is displayed in a 12h window with a separate AM/PM indicator. With the TimeTransfer function, the display of the two times can be switched with a simple operation.

The built-in watch micro-GPS receiver consumes so little energy that all functions function optimally on light energy generated by the solar dial.
