Official EFS-S510 Series Description. The EFS-S510 series is a successful combination of male design and luxury features. The inscription “Solar Powered” on the dial means only one thing – the watch has a solar battery, which does not require periodic replacement and is charged from daylight. Sapphire crystal – does not scratch, does not glare and has maximum transparency. Like all Edifice automobile chronographs, there is a stopwatch here, the parameters of which are displayed in add. windows on the dial. The back cover is screwed, which positively affected the tightness of the case. The battery level can be monitored in a special indicator, and in a separate window time is displayed in a 24-hour format.

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.
