Seiko Astron GPS Solar Executive Sports Series
A watch that works equally well in the office and the great outdoors.
Released in 2017, the Astron executive series was the first Astron designed specifically for those who want a versatile watch suitable for any occasion or activity. At Baselworld 2018, Seiko revealed a new sports design. To be launched in June 2018, the executive sports series offers all the functions of Seiko’s unique GPS Solar technology but with a new level of durability, legibility and water resistance.
The executive sports series features the 8X53 caliber which also offers a dual time sub-dial with an AM/PM indicator. Like all Astron watches, it connects automatically to the GPS network and, at the touch of a button, adjusts to the local time anywhere on earth with a precision of 1/100,000th second, using just the power of light. It also features a perpetual calendar correct to the year 2100.

The executive sports series will be launched with three versions, all of which have the same sapphire crystal bezel as the 2017 executive series, and a new crown guard. The blue and black Ref. SSE167 and SSE169 have a 46.7 mm titanium case with super-hard coating while the Ref. SSE170 has a rose gold color coating. The case and bracelet feature dynamically sharp surfaces brought to a mirror finish by Zaratsu polishing.
A first for the Astron collection, the executive sports series watches have 20 bar water resistance (approx. 200 meters). With wider hands and indexes clad in LumiBrite, they deliver increased legibility. The UTC codes on the sapphire crystal bezel also carry LumiBrite.

An extra-strength silicone strap allows the watch to sit easily on any wrist, and a new style of buckle offers enhanced comfort and a more streamlined look.
Approximate recommended retail prices in Europe: from 2,500 Euro.
