Official EFR-539 Series Description. A budget series from the Edifice chronograph line with a unique bezel and a 3D dial. The bezel is a plate with angular outlines that give the watch a brutal and aggressive appearance. The window at 9 o’clock got the same shape, and other windows resemble the dashboard of racing cars – confirming the sports rhetoric of the Edifice brand. Thanks to several visual layers, the dial seems to be recessed inside the case and has a 3D depth effect. The stopwatch is responsible for measuring the elapsed time with good accuracy – 1/10 second.

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.
