Seiko Astron 5X series
Watch Marumiyan, a Japanese artist, put his twist on the new Astron 5X series.
Born in Fukuoka, Japan, this 27-year-old creative artist works under the name Marumiyan as both a freelance commercial designer and a fine artist. His style fuels works that are filled with floral elements, intense energy and bright colour. It draws on aspects of traditional Japanese culture and 1960s Art Nouveau posters. Marumiyan has created album art for over forty international musicians. He also managed the visual conception for one of the main live festivals in Japan, Minami Wheel, and has worked for brands such as Wacom, Panasonic and Docomo.
Marumiyan now turns to Seiko’s new Astron 5X series to put his personal touch on the watch with an animated video.
The new Astron 5X series is the world’s smallest and thinnest GPS solar watch. Like all its predecessors, the new Astron 5X series adjusts at the touch of a button to your time zone by connecting to the GPS satellite network and, as it takes all the energy it needs from light alone, it never needs a battery change. In other words, it is the perfect timepiece for the global traveller.
