I’ve decided that my look for this fall would be “cool university professor’s young dad son”–a look that I thought would be best topped off with the Seiko Astron GPS Solar watch sponsored by the lovely people at Socialstars #AstronElite. I’m not getting any younger, I’m even graying, and I find myself drawn to things that are less weird, and less overtly slick. There is something sexy about looking like you could provide for a small family, change diapers, and manage to pull yourself together with quiet elegance: it’s a skill that young Williamsburg dads, my muses of the moment, seem to have down pat. This fall, I’m going to read a lot, and write poetry; you’ll find me dressed in khakis and dad jeans, big knits with funnel necks, and an air of maturity that I hope to catch up on in real life.

The Seiko Astron, a cool, quiet, complicated watch, uses GPS signals to identify the time zone, time and date data, and is powered by all types of light.
