Official ECB-20 Series Description. Introducing the Smartphone Link ECB-20 Series from EDIFICE, the highperformance chronograph that incorporates direct feedback from racing teams to create innovative new timepieces under the concept of “Speed & Intelligence.”
The four screws that hold the bezel in place, and the orange, blue, and other accent colors on the inset dial create powerful and bold designs. At the heart of these models is a Smartphone Link module that was developed in response to requests from racing team members. Smartphone linking not only ensures accurate timekeeping, it also supports a schedule timer feature that was developed to allow management of team schedules, and automatic time zone correction that comes in handy during global travels. Whenever you travel to a different time zone, these watches will automatically* switch to the current time in your new zone. No button operation is required.

These features are transporting the chronograph into new realms, and unlocking the hidden possibilities they contain. EDIFICE, the watch that recognises the value of speed and time, for people who live in the moment!

EDIFICE Design. Bold, fascinating forms and fine details, combined with simple styling that brings out the essence of metal, give birth to products with clearly designed identities.

Drawing and modeling. A prototype is produced based on a sketch using CAD and a 3D printer. A bold design concept takes shape.

Forged stainless-steel case. After forging and heat treatment of the stainless-steel material, precision machining is conducted to complete the boldly designed case form.

Polished finishing. Polish finishing by the hands of skilled craftsmen produces beautiful mirror surfaces on the forge-cast stainless-steel case.

Smartphone Link. Linking the watch to a smartphone provides access to the correct time, not only in the current location but over 300 cities around the world. Alarm setting and control over various other functions from the smartphone enhance operability to an unprecedented high level.

LED Light (Super Illuminator). A high-brightness LED illuminates the dial with bright light to improve visibility remarkably at night and in dimly lit environments.
