When the Astron was first launched in 1969, it was heavily inspired by the idea that man might one day reach the stars. Seiko named this brand Astron for the Greek word meaning ‘space’ and ‘stars’. With such celestial inspiration, it is only fitting that this new launch exhibits a space-inspired aesthetic. This new collection builds on the Astron collection’s theme of ‘solidity’.
