The ris­ing Sun

DA MAN - Caliber - - ESSENTIALS -

When it comes to tech­nol­ogy, leave it to the Ja­panese to fig­ure out the most in­trigu­ing ad­vances—in­clud­ing ones for con­nected time­pieces. Seiko’s an­swer to this trend is the Astron GPS So­lar Dual-Time, the world’s first GPS so­lar watch. This means that the watch will con­nect to GPS satel­lites to ac­cu­rately set the time. It’s pretty in­ter­est­ing to see that the power re­serve in­di­ca­tor at 9 and 10 o’clock dou­bles as the satel­lite con­nec­tion in­di­ca­tor. There’s also a sec­ond time zone, day and date dis­play along with a day/ night in­di­ca­tor on the dial. Fi­nally, it’s cru­cial to note that the watch runs on so­lar power.
