Seiko’s best known for its watch business, but the folks there can also put out a mean marketing video when they want to. And by “mean” I should really say “amazing”, if this Rube Goldberg-inspired number is anything to go by.
As a follow-up to its original Astron watch that used a low-power GPS chip to automatically set the time based on wherever in the world it was, Seiko’s new Stratosphere version features mostly aesthetic upgrades. But that doesn’t mean anyone with the original model won’t want to upgrade.
