Launched in 2012, Seiko's GPS Solar tech offered travelers an accurate and simple way to tell time across the globe. The technology allowed the watch to receive GPS signals to let it adjust itself to the local time with just a push of the button. 

This year Seiko is refining the design with a brand new movement and a slimmer, 44.8mm case design. Though the Caliber 8X22 movement is smaller, it still maintains the accuracy and functionality of the previous movement without any compromises. They've also cleaned up the dial design and the styles are all constructed from titanium and feature ceramic bezels.
