The first modern Astrons were the 7X series, released in 2012. This particular model is one of several second generation Astrons, released in late 2014, which are called the 8X series. 7X and 8X are the first two digits of the respective caliber numbers, 7X52 and 8X82. Model numbers for the 7X series begin with SAST (e.g., SAST003). The 8X series begins with SSE; the model under review is the SSE300, the black-faced, titanium version.
The 8X line improves on the (still in production) 7X line with addition of chronograph function, reduction in size (volume) by 30 percent (although still large at 44.6 mm not including crown or buttons), improved solar charging efficiency, and simplified access to setting functions.
If you’ve owned titanium watches, you know how easily they scratch. Seiko has applied a coating that is actually supposed to be twice as hard as stainless steel. The finish on the body and band of the watch is gorgeous; I hope the coating will make it last. Seiko calls it Bright Titanium, which is a proprietary substance (probably a titanium alloy) and finish. Meanwhile, I can appreciate that titanium weighs 40 percent of the weight of stainless steel.
This watch only uses its sweep second hand for the chronograph function. For normal time keeping, you have to look at the small dial at upper right, which is not as easy to see.
There is no alarm function. That doesn’t bother me; my cellphone takes care of that.
