Novak Djokovic loves his high tech Seiko watch

I'm not sure what the world's best tennis player, Novak Djokovic likes more, his 2014 Wimbledon trophy or his Seiko Astron GPS Solar watch, but I bet it's a tough decision.

Just like the Wimbledon trophy, Djokovic's new watch also has his name on it as Seiko is proud to announce the Novak Djokovic Limited Edition Astron.

This is how Seiko describes Djokovic's new watch:

The new Seiko Astron GPS Solar Novak Djokovic Limited Edition is based on the new chronograph caliber that was introduced at Baselworld 2014 to great acclaim. This remarkable caliber, like all watches in the Astron collection, adjusts to every time zone on earth at the touch of a button so that, no matter where Novak's quest for tennis glory may take him, he has always the exact time on his wrist. We estimate that Novak's 2014 global travel schedule would normally require him to adjust his watch at least 60 times. With Astron, he does not have to worry about it once.

This all means two new functions for this watch.

There is now a six-hour chronograph and a cool electronic function in the crown to simplify the adjustment of the secondary functions. The new model is also 30% smaller in size than the existing 7X caliber.

This is a big technology advance for watches.

How do you get yours?

The new Novak Djokovic Astron GPS Solar Chronograph watch is a limited edition of 2,500. It's the perfect gift item as it comes in its own presentation box with a personal message right from Novak Djokovic.

The Djokovic Astron is scheduled to be released in November 2014, and will be sold at leading Seiko retail outlets worldwide.

Additional specs: The band is going to be extra-strength silicon with a three-fold clasp and push button release. The glass is Sapphire crystal with super-clear coating.

This looks to be a great watch, not just something Novak Djokovic is being paid to wear or endorse. If you are looking for a quality watch, give Seiko timepieces a look.
