Seiko Quartz Astron Commemorative Edition - #S23617J1


On Christmas day in 1969, Seiko launched a watch that would change the way the world told time. That watch was the Seiko Quartz Astron. 40 years later, in December 2009 Seiko celebrated the Anniversary of their invention by announcing the Seiko Quartz Astron Commemorative Edition.

The new Astron is powered by an all new quartz movement, dubbed the 9F62. This is the most advanced quartz movement ever built and a perfect way to celebrate their technological achievement. It will re-define what quartz precision, power and durability is all about. Featuring 10 second a year accuracy, instantaneous date change, a super-sealed movement, a high torque stepping motor, and a super precise alignment of the hands, The Seiko Quartz Astron is the latest expression of Seiko’s dedication to perfection.
