Casio Releases New EDIFICE Models with Scuderia Toro Rosso Racing Team

[Timepieces]

 

Casio Computer Co., Ltd. launched three (3) new additions to its EDIFICE line of high-performance sports chronographs in Tokyo, Japan on 13 March 2019. The new EDIFICE Scuderia Toro Rosso Limited Edition combines dynamic design with advanced technology, and was designed in collaboration with the Formula One racing team Scuderia Toro Rosso, which Casio supports as an official team partner.

Scuderia Toro Rosso brings its youthful energy and racing cars powered by outstanding technological innovations to the circuit, in the passionate pursuit of speed. Casio believes that these qualities perfectly match the brand concept for EDIFICE and has been an official team partner since 2016.

The new ECB-900TR, EQS-920TR, and EFR-564TR boast color schemes that adopt the red, blue, and silver colors of the Scuderia Toro Rossoracing machines. The overall design of the watches is inspired by the worldview of motorsports, with special touches such as rendering the hour indexes in a typeface that resembles team car numbers. The dial and back case feature the team logo, while the second-hand is decorated with the colors of the flag of Italy, where the team is based. The watches also come with special packaging.

All three models feature a multidimensional face and flat bezel, with the ECB-900TR and EQS-920TR also employing a solar-charging power system. The ECB-900TR pairs with a smartphone via Bluetooth®, enabling the user to adjust time and control watch functions such as world time and alarm from a smartphone app. LCDs at the 12 o’clock and 9 o’clock positions provide an accessible view of a variety of information.
