European Premiere of the new Seiko Astron at Greenwich, London
London, United Kingdom
On October 10, 2012, over 100 guests, representatives of the media and valued retail partners of Seiko, attended the European launch of the new Seiko Astron GPS Solar at the Royal Greenwich Observatory in London, a venue steeped in horological history. The new Seiko Astron collection was presented in the famous Time Galleries, alongside many important timepieces from the 17th and 18th centuries, including the famous Harrison Chronometers. For the first time in Europe, our guests were able to see the new Astron close up, and to observe its operation as it connected to the GPS network, adjusting automatically to the correct time and time zone. The new Astron is now available at leading Seiko retail outlets throughout Europe and the world.
