Seiko has created a brand new timepiece— Astron GPS Solar Dual-Time Novak Djokovic
Novak Djokovic’s joy at winning the US Open, his third Open victory in the same year, is entirely understandable. It’s just a shame that the viewing public never seem to share his zeal and joy, for they always hope his chief opponent Roger Federer is going to win one more time. Yet victory was denied Federer once again by Djokovic on Sunday at Flushing Meadows in a taut 4-set match.
Over the last 12 months, Novak Djokovic has played in 20 tournaments in 20 cities in 12 countries. A perfect companion to him, the Astron GPS Solar chronograph which Seiko created especially for him last year automatically adjusts, at the touch of a button, to every time zone on earth (though if there are changes in the region/time zone, manual time zone selection may be required) showing the time with a precision of one second every 100,000 years.
The new Astron GPS Solar Novak Djokovic Limited Edition shares all the core advantages of his current Astron, but with a new caliber and a more simple dial design. The timepiece not only displays the local time, but also the home time zone on a simple 12 hour sub-dial with a separate AM/PM indicator.
In addition, the day of the week is displayed in a retrograde display at the 2 o’clock, with the date at 4 o’clock. The date is correct every day until February 28, 2100. Thanks to the electronic setting function in the crown, the swiss best watch is simple to operate.
This sporty yet elegant watch comes in a rose-gold case, has a brown dial and crocodile leather strap and a black ceramic bezel.
The watch is offered in a special presentation box, with a card carrying a personal message from Novak. It will be released in autumn this year and presented at leading Seiko retail outlets worldwide.
The watch carries Novak’s signature on the back and is the first watch in a Limited Edition that is shortly to be released worldwide.
