The Astron of dressing has arrived

With the large date window, a second Dual-Time dial at the six o'clock position and due to the new thinner needles, the new designs have a refinement that makes them perfect to wear both when you go out at night or when you have international travel. In addition, there are several versions with Roman numerals and that have more components with mirror finish surfaces. The Astron dress watch has really arrived.
When GPS signals are received, the second hand begins to move, indicates the number of satellites, and then shows the current time. It is a curious moment, feeling a connection with GPS satellites 20,000 km away.
The new Astron 8X42 caliber features a classic large date window and Roman numerals that have been seen for the first time in an Astron design, but sharing all the basic features of the 8X caliber that have been so successful. The Astron Big-Date adds a new note of elegance to the Astron design.

Each time the dial is exposed to bright light, the watch automatically receives GPS signals. When the watch is hidden under a sleeve and the dial cannot receive enough light, the watch saves the previous manual time or time zone data and the time setting automatically starts at the same time.
A ring-shaped antenna, exclusive to Seiko, placed under the dial is suitable for automatic reception, since it can receive signals easily, regardless of the position of the watch.
In order to avoid any interference due to the operation of electronic devices on an airplane, flight mode is available when one is on board an airplane. In flight mode, the GPS signal reception function is disabled.
In areas where DST (daylight saving time) is applied, the time can be adjusted manually.
