Seiko has announced two new watches with fired porcelain enamel dials that pay homage to the first Seiko wristwatch. These special Seiko Presage 100th Anniversary Enamel Dial watches will be released in January in two variations: time/date (shown above, right) and power reserve (shown above, left) — in a limited production of 500 each.

Originally introduced at Baselworld 2012, the Seiko Astron GPS Solar is an unprecedented solar powered quartz GPS watch. It features automatic GPS calibration of hours, minutes and seconds, including automatic and manual time zone adjustment, across all time zones (and with regards to Daylight Savings time); it also has a perpetual calendar function, correct to February 2100.
Introduced at Baselworld 2012, the Seiko SNDD61 Chronograph features a black IP treated stainless steel case, Japenese powered quartz chronograph, Hardlex crystal, screw down caseback, a urethane strap and 100 meter water-resistance. It will be available in August for a retail of $300.
This is the new Seiko Astron GPS Solar watch collection. Based around a quartz movement, the Astron GPS is capable of automatically syncing with four or more GPS satellites daily (as opposed to atomic watches which sync with the atomic signal.) The timezone automatically changes when traveling between different timezones. It can also be synced manually.
The Seiko Orange Monster is one of the most popular, and affordable Seiko timepieces. It comes with a Japanese automatic movement for the price of a typical Japanese quartz timepiece. Needless to say, the value proposition is amazing.
The Seiko Baby Monster (pictured, right), is maybe an even better value. It has most of the features that have made the original Orange Monster (pictured, left) so popular, for approximately one hundred dollars less.
