The Astron revolution continues apace with the addition of a third caliber, designed specifically for the global traveller. Using just the power of light, Astron connects to the GPS network and tells time with atomic clock precision, adjusting at the touch of a button to your time zone. Now, with the new Dual-Time caliber, you can read not only the time where you are, but also the time in your home time zone. 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.
