    Picture Seiko Astron Review (in depth) by our Forum sponsor Timeless Luxury Watches (Timelesswatchexchange)

    Please read this in depth review by our forum sponsor Timeless Luxury Watches
    (formerly known as Timeless Watch Exchange)

    It’s not often that I get to review a watch that genuinely contributes something to horology. Generally I am happy to focus on the aesthetics and execution of a watch. But the Astron is a watch that sees farther than its peers. It’s the namesake that launched the quartz watch revolution in 1969 and is, quite arguably, the most important watch of the 20th century.



    It’s difficult to see if the new incarnation will have such far reaching implications, or if such revolutions in time keeping even exist going forward. But it does do something new and better than its competitors. Namely, it’s the first full production GPS timed watch ever made, and the only one that can automatically compensate for time zone changes. Special high dollar limited editions did exist prior to it, but from a practical standpoint, this is the first one an ordinary person can actually buy.
