Like all Astron GPS Solar calibers, 8X42 offers the ability to adjust to local time automatically, wherever we are in the world, at the touch of a button and using just the power of light. With the addition of the big date window, the inclusion of a dual-time dial at the six o’clock position and new slimmer hands, the new designs have a refinement that makes them perfect for any occasions. For the first time, several dials feature roman numerals and more components benefit from mirror-finished surfaces. From now on the Astron watch shows a city look.
The 8X42 collection comprises four models in stainless steel and three in titanium, all offer a great level of scratch resistance thanks to their ceramic bezels, sapphire crystals and the super-hard coatings that they all have. This new coating technology allows even the rose gold tone designs to be highly resistant to scratches. This process ensures that every Astron GPS Solar Big-Date watch lasts as long as possible.
