Official EFR-563 Series Description. Inexpensive Edifice series with retrograde chronograph elements and a powerful bezel. The massive bezel rises above the glass and creates a visual sensation of brutality and power. The arrow in the retrograde window, responsible for the minutes of the stopwatch, does not move in a circle, but with a short jump moves to the initial position, thereby recalling the racing orientation of the model. Another window shows the time in 24-hour format. Some models of the series received an ion-coated bezel – so as not to scratch over time. White hour markers and hands contrast well with the general background of the dial, creating almost ideal conditions for its readability. Of the additional features, only the date is displayed as the number of the month.

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.
