Asiko series under Seiko Seiko continues the name of Astron, the world’s first quartz watch published by Seiko in December 1969, and launched the world’s first Seiko Astron GPS solar watch in 2012. Astron has evolved again this year. Introduced a new generation of ‘5X series’. The time zone correction speed is only 3 seconds at the fastest, and the time switching function between the two places is added. At the same time, it is also the world’s thinnest GPS solar pointer watch. The powerful function will be modern and compact The precise choice for business people everywhere. In addition, to commemorate the birth of the 5X series, SeikoAstron also launched the annual limited edition model “SUPERNOVA”, just like the dazzling spark caused by the supernova during the evolution of the universe’s stars, symbolizing the birth of each Astron series The horological world has brought shocking creations, and this announcement is expected to once again create a new realm of ‘absolute precision’.
SeikoAstron ‘5X Series’ (SSH003J1) titanium case, ceramic bezel, diameter 42.9 mm, hours, minutes, date, day of the week, perpetual calendar, power reserve display, two places time, GPS satellite positioning, world time (39 time zone) Daylight saving time (DST), flight mode, power saving mode (full power for about 2 years), 5X53GPS solar movement, full power for about 6 months, sapphire crystal glass surface, titanium metal combined with ceramic chain.
Since the SeikoAstron GPS solar watch first appeared in 2012, it not only caused a sensation around the world, but also dropped a technological shock for the watch industry. In 2014, SeikoAstron released a smaller and simpler ‘8X Series’, which is also the first time to be installed in The models with time and timing functions, more practical and diversified models immediately attracted worldwide attention. In the autumn and winter of 2018, SeikoAstron has evolved again, with a new ‘5X Series’, which provides the most advanced functions to date. It is also by far the world’s smallest and thinnest GPS solar watch. This announcement is expected to lead the history of watches and clocks to the next level of ‘absolute accuracy’.
Correct the time zone in three seconds and combine the fast switching function of the two places.
The ‘5X Series’ has undergone a comprehensive transformation and upgrade of the GPS module. The hour, minute, and second hands not only operate independently and are equipped with high-speed motors, achieving the ‘high-speed time zone correction function’ that can be completed in as little as 3 seconds. And press the 2 and 4 o’clock buttons at the same time to start the ‘two places time switching function’, you can instantly exchange the local time and the second place time, making the operation and response more sensitive and intuitive, for people who often travel around the world It is a great gospel. The powerful movement is equipped with a newly developed ultra-low-power GPS module circuit, which consumes only 1/2 the power of the previous generation movement. With the solar charging system and the movement itself being miniaturized, the ‘5X series’ It can be said to be the world’s thinnest but most powerful GPS solar pointer watch.
Newly developed ‘SmartAdjuster’ quick-adjusting strap design to improve long-term wearing comfort.
Smart sensor upgrade, time automatic correction and evolution
The new 5X series watches are also equipped with ‘Smart Sensing (Automatic Time Correction)’, which is Seiko’s exclusive technology. As long as the faceplate is exposed to sunlight, it can automatically receive GPS satellite radio waves. Compared with the 8X series, the automatic time correction is performed once a day. It evolved to twice a day. As long as it is under the sky, it can be connected to one or more GPS satellites, and the accuracy can reach an error of only one second in 100,000 years. Even if the watch can’t see the sky, it can remember the last time it successfully received the time signal and automatically try to receive it.
In addition, for travelers who need to wear a watch for a long time, the newly developed fast-adjustable strap design ‘SmartAdjuster’ can adjust the strap finely according to the seasonal temperature or body change by pressing the button next to the buckle To a suitable length, the wearing comfort is greatly improved. After a significant upgrade in both functionality and comfort, the SeikoAstron5X is definitely the perfect timepiece of choice for travelers worldwide.

Annual limited edition “ SUPERNOVA ” bursts into the beauty of stars
In order to commemorate the debut of the 5X series, the annual limited edition model ‘SUPERNOVA’ is specially launched. The design is inspired by the astronomical phenomenon of the supernova (SUPERNOVA) in the universe. It is a violent and violent explosion caused by the star during the evolution, showing the SeikoAstron series. During the continuous evolution of the watch, they have created a world-beating pioneering act like a supernova.

The sapphire crystal on the dark blue-based dial and the bezel of the watch are staggered to present a deep sense of the universe. With Astron’s unique three-dimensional rose gold scale, it looks like a dazzling star in the universe. ‘Mirror polishing’ fully expresses the unique cosmic tension and charm of SUPERNOVA. Seiko’s pursuit of perfection in watchmaking technology also allows Astron to reflect the look of high-end watches in every detail.
