Official EFV-560 Series Description. The classic Edifice inexpensive chronograph has a small case, clear hands and hour markers and only an analog dial. There is nothing superfluous here – just a male arrow classic and a simple stopwatch. The second hand has a sharp and long tip [almost like that of the “Swiss”], to emphasize the special style of the EFV-560, and add. the windows on the dial traditionally look like a car dashboard – this is the concept of the entire Edifice brand as a whole. Models with a leather strap are especially good, because the skin is not only pleasant to the touch, but also looks very presentable. The steel case is one-piece, without separate parts, and a 100-meter water resistance allows you to comfortably accept any water procedures.

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.
