The tennis points system – Love, 15, 30, and 40 – is used for four of the minute markers as a subtle nod to the sport played by the great sportsman who inspires this creation. A star at the eight o’clock marker honours Novak for being one of only eight players in history to achieve a career Grand Slam. It also features highlighted UTC codes of the venues of Novak’s Grand Slam victories. The UTC codes for the four cities that host the Grand Slam tournaments, Paris, London, New York, and Melbourne, are highlighted on the bezel.
The case back proudly bears Novak’s signature. Every watch has its own individual serial number and is offered in a special presentation box. This watch is number 0222/1500
To ensure its durability, the watch has been coated with Seiko’s unique super-hard black coating, giving it scratch-resistance and a uniform jet-black colour that will not fade.
ASTRON GPS Technology
By connecting to the GPS network, the new ASTRON adjusts at the touch of a button to your time zone* and, by taking all the energy it needs from light alone, never needs a battery change.
Whenever the dial is exposed to bright light, the watch automatically receives GPS signals. When the watch is concealed under a sleeve and the dial cannot receive enough light, the watch stores the time of the previous successful manual time adjustment or time zone adjustment, and automatically starts time adjustment at the same time.
An exclusive Seiko ring antenna placed under the dial ring is suitable for automatic reception as it can easily receive signals regardless of posture.
In order to avoid any interference with the operation of electronic devices in an aircraft, in-flight mode is available when boarding a plane. In the in-flight mode, the GPS signal reception function will not work.
