Not all watches are created equal, this you can be sure of. The thing is, not everyone is able to afford one of those expensive designer watches, and will have to settle for something that is more within their budgets. Seiko does have its fair share of entry level timepieces, but this does not mean they do not cater to the mid-range and higher end market. In fact, Seiko has just launched its Novak Djokovic Limited Edition Astron watch, where this timepiece will be based on the new chronograph caliber that was introduced at Baselworld 2014 to great acclaim.
The new Seiko Astron GPS Solar Novak Djokovic Limited Edition is so remarkable that it is capable of adjusting itself to every time zone on earth with but a single touch of a button, which means regardless of where Novak’s game takes him, he will be able to have the exact time on his wrist. It is estimated that Novak’s 2014 global travel schedule might need him to adjust his watch a minimum of 60 times, but with the Seiko Astron, he does not even have to think about doing so, now how about that?
Apart from that, with its 8X82 caliber, there are two new functions thrown into the mix, namely a six-hour chronograph and an electronic function in the crown that paves the way for even easier adjustment of the secondary functions. Not only that, it is 30% smaller in size than the current 7X caliber, where this reduction is made possible thanks to a new advance in Astron’s energy-saving technology, as it enables the timepiece to hook up to the GPS network with a smaller antenna.
The Novak Djokovic Limited Edition sports a black ceramic bezel, an extra-strength silicon strap and the rose-gold tone of the steel case. The case itself will see Novak’s name and signature appear on the back, while each watch has its own serial number engraved beneath. Rolling out this November, there will only be 2,500 of these bad boys made available to the masses.
