Seiko has announced the launch of the Novak Djokovic limited edition Astron GPS Solar, which it regards as the best Astron watch and is limited to 3,500 pieces.
Djokovic is the world’s number one tennis player and became one of only eight players in history to win a Career Grand Slam in June this year at Roland Garros. He has won a total of 12 Grand Slam singles titles, 66 ATP singles titles and will be promoting Seiko’s new watch.
Seiko said the Astron GPS Solar is optimised for international travel. And the wearer can adjust to each new time zone with a single touch of a button. According to the brand, using the power from light, the Astron GPS Solar connects to the GPS network and automatically adjusts, at the touch of a button, different time zones and shows the time with a precision of one second every 100,000 years.
The brand said the watch incorporates calibre 8X22, a notable advance in Seiko’s GPS Solar technology. Seiko claims the case is slimmer than any other GPS Solar watch, including all other Astron models (the depth is 12.4mm compared to 13.3mm in the other 8X series).
The limited edition piece has a unique design that features a dark shade of mother-of pearl on the, which, in combination with the black crocodile leather strap and the rose gold colour case, gives the watch a powerful and refined appeal, according to Seiko. Each watch in the limited edition carries Djokovic’s signature on the case back and is accompanied by a card with a message from the tennis player.
