Tokyo: Consumer electronics company Casio announced the release of a new addition to its EDIFICE line of high-performance sports chronographs – the ECB-900DB – which will be available in two models and is designed to evoke styling of motorsports.
The new addition delivers advanced functionality to assist the race logistics of Scuderia Toro Rosso F1 team, which EDIFICE supports as a team partner. Critical for racing, the stopwatch is accurate to 1/1,000th of a second and records up to 200 lap times while also displaying average speed, according to a release.
The user can connect the watch and with the EDIFICE Connected app to manage lap times from a smartphone. The app also ensures the watch receives precise timing data, which is critical for races where even a thousandth of a second can make the difference. The app also makes it easy for the user to access the diverse features of the watch, for instance selecting the world time from among 300 cities.
The design of the new watch evokes motorsports with Tachymeter markings on the bezel and an in-dial at the 4 o’clock position with a multidimensional design inspired by the speedometer of a sports car.
The in-dial also features a gradation finish that enhances the sporty look of the watch. In addition, a variety of key information is provided through the LCDs at the 12 and 9 o’clock positions. Twin LED lights illuminate the digital displays and analog face, respectively. All of these features are designed to deliver optimum visibility for users.
