Great Guy Gift
If you have not read about it, the new Seiko Astron is an analog, solar-powered watch that receives GPS satellite signals and adjusts to the precise local time anywhere on Earth. It recognizes all 39 time zones. The Astron covers the globe by first determining its location using GPS, then comparing that information with an on board database that divides the Earth’s surface into one million squares, each of which is assigned to a particular time zone. That is something no other watch can do.
The Astron differs from watches that receive terrestrial radio signals from atomic clocks. So-called RC (radio-controlled) watches receive signals when they are within range of stations in the United States, Japan, the United Kingdom, Germany and China, so they do not offer global coverage. The Astron works anywhere, even in the middle of an ocean or desert, in Antarctica, or on a Tibetan mountaintop should you find yourself straying that far from Jersey. Perfect present for the adventurer or jet setter in your life.
