Casio’s high-performance metal watch “EDIFICE” is developed based on the concept of “Speed and Intelligence” with the theme of motor sports. The latest model is the “ECB-10”, which has Bluetooth Low Energy and has a function to link with smartphone-specific applications. Based on the ECB-10, Honda Racing (Honda Racing) collaboration model “ECB-10HR-1AJR” will be released to commemorate EDIFICE’s 20th anniversary.
“The model celebrating EDIFICE’s 20th anniversary must be a motor sport image.”-The ECB-10HR-1AJR planner would have thought so. To do this, Casio (EDIFICE) is F1 team “Scuderia AlphaTauri (Scuderia Alpha Tauri)” to support and supply the power unit, the collaboration with’ve been sharing a passion for mental and motor sports of manufacturing “Honda Racing” is Must have been required.
The ECB-10HR-1AJR is so dyed in Honda Racing’s spirit that the ECB-10 doesn’t look like a base model. The striking black and red coloring is the same as the Honda F1 crew’s uniform, while the carbon dial is reminiscent of the exterior of an F1 car. Many fans will be pleased that the image became more familiar than the previous collaboration model “EQB-1000HR” .
The fact that the logos and letters on the dial have become much more beautiful is also conspicuous. The gold EDIFICE logo is a three-dimensional appearance and shine unique to a metal letter processed into a sheet of metal material. I am strongly impressed that it is a brand 20th anniversary item.
The Honda Racing logo underneath is a bag letter with a border when you look closely, and that line is also delicately printed beautifully. This is the same with the letter of the schedule timer designed like a meter. Fine characters but printed without faintness, high visibility.
This is an effect obtained by impregnating the carbon material with resin and printing it after coating the carbon material with resin. The same technology is used in actual F1 cars. In this way, the parts that look “normal” also require a lot of advanced technology and attention.
