Casio Computer Co., Ltd. announced on September 24, “Honda Racing Championship White Edition (ECB-S100HR)”, which is a collaboration model with “Honda Racing”, as a new product of the high-performance metal watch “EDIFICE”. .. It will go on sale on October 15th and will cost 46,200 yen.
Honda Racing is a general term for motor sports activities developed by Honda Motor Co., Ltd. (Honda) worldwide. Casio and Honda Racing have been collaborating since 2018. Honda will withdraw from F1 in the 2021 season, but it is a pity that the 2021 F1 Japan Grand Prix, which was supposed to be held at Suzuka Circuit, has been cancelled.
This ECB-S100HR is a model that pays homage to Honda Racing’s history of participating in F1 and its achievements so far. Honda entered F1 for the first time as a Japanese automobile manufacturer in 1964, and the machine at that time was the “RA271” with an impressive white body and red Hinomaru, but the ECB-S100HR was designed with this machine as a motif.
The white body is called “Championship White” and is a symbol of Honda’s racing spirit. The ECB-S100HR uses genuine “championship white” paint on the outer ring of the dial and red on the indial and buttons.
A checkered flag pattern was printed on the outer circumference of the glass to honor Honda’s glory. In addition, the genuine leather band has a two-tone color with white on the front and red on the back.
