Your smartphone and other devices change time when you land in a new location, why shouldn’t your watch. I mean really, pulling that pin out and rotating the crown a couple of times can be a real chore!
But seriously, thanks to its built-in low-power GPS system, the watch automatically adjusts the time to your current location, using GPS triangulation to determine just where you are. It also uses that same GPS connectivity to keep the time accurate based on the atomic clocks in each satellite. Worries about taking the plane down? No worries – there’s an “in-flight” mode that will keep things quiet until you get there. How does such a thing maintain decent battery life? That’s a no-brainer coming from one of the world preeminent makers of solar powered watches.
The aesthetics weren’t ignored on this piece. A very special domed sapphire crystal covers the top and a glob imprint sits on the watch face to create a great effect – as if floating above the earth. You’ve got city codes and bold fonts to go along with the luminous coating.
The Astron is available in a number of finishes for about $2,600. Enjoy!
