Official EFS-S530 Series Description. Dynamics and speed – this is how the EFS-S530 series can be characterized by its appearance. The design of the dial is made according to the canons of the automotive essence of the Edifice brand – this is indicated by additional. windows resembling a car dashboard, and a pointed second hand with a highlighted tip. The watch has a stopwatch, and one of the windows, which is responsible for showing the minutes of the stopwatch, has a retrograde shape – when the arrow jumps to its initial position, rather than rotating in a circle. Sapphire crystal not only looks solid, but practically does not scratch, because the material itself is very hard. EFS-S530 is powered by a solar battery, which has no expiration date.
