Body & Design
Featuring an elegantly designed round watch face, this Edifice watch from Casio sports a dial which measures 49.3 mm (width), 51 mm (height) and 14.1 mm (thickness). The spherical mineral glass on this Edifice has a rounded surface designed to protect the watch face, giving it a much increased scratch and impact resistance.
This watch face or dial is protected by a stainless steel bezel which is held together on your wrist with a very sturdy and visually appealing stainless steel strap. This stainless strap uses a double-lock, 1-press, 3-fold buckle clasp to keep the watch securely fastened on to your wrist. This stainless steel composition also covers the watch’s back case and the bezel, giving it great deal of strength and damage resistance and further contributes to its overall reduced weight of 197 g.
All the operations on this watch are carried out using the 2 push buttons and the all-important rotating crown. This intricately detailed crown comes with a screw lock feature that lets you screw the crown into the case to ensure maximum water resistance. As a boost to the aesthetic value of this Casio, you can find the Edifice logo that is clearly imprinted or stamped on the crown, back case and the strap buckle.
Functions & Other Features
This Casio Edifice has the analog chronograph function which includes a 1 second stopwatch along with the ability to accurately measure split or lap times. The three dials found on the watch face are the minute stopwatch at the 12 O’clock position, the seconds counter at the 6 O’clock and a highly fashionable retrograde dial that indicates the stopwatch hours count.
The day and date display function on the Casio timepiece can be found at the 3 O’clock position on the dial, while the outer ring of the dial case features a tachymeter grid. The water resistant capacity of this Edifice has a maximum depth of 100 m, making it an automatic and obvious choice to be worn in places like a poolside event or anywhere around other water bodies where there is a serious chance that the watch will be directly exposed to water.
This high-tech watch uses a certain ion plating technology that was initially conceived and consistently made use of by the U.S. space program until its eventual commercialization. The inclusion of the partial ion plating offers tremendous advantages over traditional plating processes in terms of adhesion, hardness and durability. This can also be seen as a value added feature to all you nature loving environmentalists as the ion plating process makes much less of an environmental impact as it takes place within a vacuum sealed chamber.
In total, this incredibly good looking and highly durable watch from Casio, with its galaxy of amazing features and functions is sure to provide you with the highest levels of accuracy and reliability, while also providing you an instrument with an undeniable sense of social prowess.
