Description

A tribute to a watchmaking revolution. The 50th anniversary of the Quartz Astron is celebrated in a limited edition GPS Solar watch.

On the fiftieth anniversary of the original Quartz Astron, a new creation in the Astron GPS Solar collection pays tribute to its celebrated predecessor and brings together the two revolutionary advances in watchmaking history that share the Astron name.

This new limited edition watch brings back to life the form and design of the 1969 Quartz Astron in its entirety. Both the elegance of the celebrated timepiece and its characteristically futuristic feel are reflected in the curved silhouette of the case, the wide case lugs and the thin bezel. The spirit of the 1969 Astron is reflected in every aspect of the design.Like the 1969 watch, the case is in 18K yellow gold with each delicate hand-carved by the highest skilled craftsmen and women. The dial has a subtle vertical hairline pattern and the hands and multi-faceted indexes are thin and carry a black line on the surface, just as on the first Quartz Astron. The case back is marked “Commemorating the 50th anniversary of Quartz Astron, released on Dec 25, 1969”. The letters “Limited Edition” and the serial number 01/50-50/50 are inscribed on the case back as proof of this limited quantity edition. The limited-edition watch houses a new GPS Solar movement that allows it to have the slimness and grace of the 1969 watch’s form. The new Calibre 3X22 is the world’s thinnest GPS solar calibre to be fitted in a watch case and is made possible by the highest level of modern watchmaking technology. Reduced to its essentials of time adjustment and timekeeping, the watch connects automatically up to twice a day to the GPS network to maintain its precision of one second every 100,000 years, and when time zone adjustment is required, with a simple push of a single button, the hands move faster than ever thanks to the system that moves each hand independently.
