Official EFV-100 Series Description. A classic dial in a minimalist style – when there is nothing superfluous in the watch. No ext. windows or indicators, except for the date – only hands and large hour markers for better readability of the analog zone. The hour hand with a thickening and the second hand with a long and thin tip – almost like the famous “Swiss”. The model is somewhat reminiscent of “divers” – this is evidenced not only by the shape of the hour and minute hands, but also by the screwing back cover for good tightness and protection of the mechanism. Water resistant 100 meters – you can safely dive and swim.

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.

Bold index. An edgy, striking large index is laid out on the dial. Robust modeling with straight lines and basic tones evokes a strong presence.

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.
