Astron GPS Solar

The world’s first GPS solar watch. By connecting to the GPS network, the Astron adjusts at the touch of a button to your time zone and, by taking all the energy it needs from light alone, never needs a battery change.

Story

With half a century of history and remarkable innovation, Seiko’s diver’s watch has been used all over the world in diverse situations. Over the years, the timepiece has proven itself worthy of any harsh environment and has been praised from professional divers.

Earning credibility through vigorous adventures in the North and South Pole.

From 1966, the timepiece has been brought on 4 missions with the Antarctic Team of the Geospatial Information Authority of Japan. Later on, numerous adventurers and explorers have made achievements such as successfully ascending Everest gearing Seiko’s diver’s watch. After years of proving itself worthy of withstanding extreme environments, Seiko’s diver’s watch has earned its integrity.

Exceeding any expectation of water resistance with the depth of 1062 meters.

In May of 1983, two Professional Diver’s 600ms were mounted on Shinkai 2000, a research submersible used by JAMSTEC (Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology). The watch was originally intended for use up to 600 meters, yet the timepiece withstood water pressure at a depth of 1062 meters. The watch’s legibility, precision, and exterior remained unscathed, continuing to strengthen its credibility.

Proving its significant impermeability.

For saturation diver’s watches, helium is a constant issue. The gas penetrates the glass, and in some cases the difference in external and internal air pressure causes the glass cover to break. While other companies focus on methods to release Helium with an escape valve, Seiko took a different turn and developed a glass case that is practically impermeable to Helium gas. This is the creation of Seiko’s Diver’s Professional 600M. In 1983, JAMSTEC conducted an impermeability test by submersing several diver’s watches under 300M saturation diving. Seiko’s Diver’s Professional 600M proved to be up to ten times more impermeable to Helium gas compared to other companies. The true diver’s watch continues to prove itself.
