Official Marketing Focus from Casio

The new flagship RACE LAP CHRONOGRAPH combines a dynamic design with advanced technology to create a high-performance sports chronograph.
Equipped with a “Connected Engine” that allows linking with a smartphone, this model deliver chronograph performance with motor sports inspired designs and functions.
In consultation with members of a professional racing team supported by EDIFICE, we added a target time indicator at 12 o’clock that counts down the final 10 seconds before a specified target time. During races, this allows engineers to determine the timing required for team engineers to approach a vehicle, so more accurate values can be posted on the pit board. Spectators as well will also appreciate the ability to time vehicles they support as a race unfolds before them. This indicator also shows the difference between measured lap times and a target time.
