Seiko Astron: The watch that always shows the correct time. Worldwide. With 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. The ideal watch for the frequent traveller.

solar timepiece

Seiko Solar uses an ultra-efficient solar cell that is able to create 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 timepiece is protected against overcharging.

Astron’s Solar GPS Technologie

Seiko developed an automatic system for Astron GPS Solar that enables the watch to automatically adjust to the local time once a day thanks to the GPS time signal. The amount of light is analyzed via a hidden sensor. After observing strong sunlight for 5 seconds, the watch contacts a GPS satellite to receive the time signal. If the weather conditions are not suitable, the watch will remember when it last successfully received a time signal and attempt to reconnect automatically at that time.

Making contact with satellites orbiting about 20,000 km above the Earth requires a significant amount of energy. The Astron GPS Solar is equipped with a unique GPS module that has been specially developed for the watch and consumes only 20% of the energy that other GPS devices use. This allows the watch to run entirely on the power of light, without ever needing a new battery. Under the watch's bezel is a special ring antenna that, in combination with the ceramic in the bezel, optimizes signal reception. Thanks to this ring antenna, the Astron has been able to obtain its slim, elegant shape.
