Seiko announced today limited edition of GPS Solar watch SBXC 075, in collaboration with Honda’s first full-scale mass-produced EV “Honda e. The limited high-end collection Revolution Line of the GPS solar watch from Seiko Astron will be available in Japan only. Only 300 pieces will be available from September 26th for 540,000 yen ($5095) in Japan. The GPS solar watch with a design that embodies the value shared by both Astron and Honda e emphasizes the resonating identities of both parties.
Inspired by the motifs based on circles used throughout Honda e, the soft flow of light that connects the box sapphire glass to the outer case made of white ceramics in a curved curve with a beam. It is starting. All parts of the watch except the back cover are finished with full polish to give a high-quality feel with a sense of transparency. The dial design is also a modern and minimalist design that eliminates the functional impression as much as possible. The hands and indexes express the Honda e circular motif.
The back cover of the watch follows the Honda e wheel design. The logo and serial number are marked. The Honda e is designed with the concept of having a modern living room outside and having a seamless experience where you can feel at home while in the car, and the console deck is unified in wood grain.
The seat fabric is like a sofa.In order to follow this essence, the attached replacement strap uses a sheet material exclusively for Honda e.
The special box is made of wood that has a texture that is close to the grain of the console deck.
Case material is made of ceramics + titanium (super black diamond shield). The strap is reinforced silicone (Nakadome: stainless steel/one push three-fold method) with a fabric strap for replacement and is made with reinforced waterproof material for daily life (10 ATM water resistant). The movement of limited edition Seiko Astron is GPS solar movement caliber 5X53. The body size is 45.3 x 13.9 mm (outer diameter x thickness).
As with the Honda e, which runs on an electric powertrain, the Astron, which is driven by the electric energy stored by power generation using light, is an ecological item.
Honda e is a new electric vehicle to be released on October 30. Featuring a simple and modern appearance, the motor and rear wheel drive provides cleanness and maneuverability. The interior of the car is equipped with advanced functions such as a large-screen 2-screen touch panel monitor, widescreen Honda Connect Display and a side camera mirror system that replaces the door mirrors.
