At WatchNation we are proud to announce that the Casio Edifice Watch EFR-569DC-1AVUEF is a UK exclusive to ourselves. We have had a long and great relationship with Casio through the years with plans for it to continue for many years. The model itself is actually inspired by Japanese motor racing.The case measures at a width of 48mm and a thickness of 12mm, a common theme of Edifice models. The 48mm case is larger than the average watch which brings out the masculine side of the piece. The bezel of the watch is fixed, which adds to the durability of the watch as most watches tend to have an attached bezel. Additionally, the case is raised slightly which provides extra protection to the stylish mineral crystal glass. In-between each screw is a small black groove which gives the timepiece another dimension. Furthermore, the crown can be seen at the 3 o'clock position with a guard on either side. This guard is used to protect the crown from being knocked out of place by any rigorous sporting activity. The crown as well as two buttons either side are coated in a gold IP style. The stainless steel integrated bracelet contributes greatly to how the watch looks and feels on your wrist.
The bracelet has a width of approximately 20mm which is complemented well by the large case. It has a maximum length of 24cm which would even fit those built for the toughest of sports. The bracelet style is similar to that of the original Rolex oyster with three links combining to make one.The bracelet can then be securely fastened using a one touch three fold over clasp. The dial hosts an analogue display with three hands for the hours, minutes and seconds. The ever-present Casio and Edifice logo can be seen next to the 3 o'clock position which is a unique yet common alignment in Edifice watches. Just below the logo at the 4 o'clock position is an easy to read date window with a white background and black Arabic numerals. The stopwatch, alongside the hands, are powered by a quartz SR920SW.
This battery allows the watch to have an accuracy of +-20 seconds per month, making this a piece you can truly rely on. Around the edge of the dial are golden indexes which have been coated in a luminous material, allowing them to be visible at night as well as the hands meaning the watch is ready to go at any time. Additionally, adjacent to the index markers around second markers placed on the chapter ring to complete the dial.
The rest of the dial features three sub-dials, of which make up a precise chronograph feature, which is also known as a stopwatch. This is where this watch really comes into its element with it being able to be used for a quick run in the park or an intense 10,000 metre race at the Olympics.
The measuring capacity has an accuracy down to a tenth of a second as seen in the dial positioned at 12 o'clock. This is great for a quick 100 metre dash where every millisecond count. The measuring capacity for this timepiece is one hour with three modes being available to choose from the buttons on the side of the case. The three modes are; elapsed time, split time and 1st and second place time. This not only allows you to help pace yourself but others too.
One Touch Three Fold Clasp. Measuring capacity: 59'59.9'. Measuring modes: Elapsed time, split time, 1st-2nd place times. 51 X 48 X 12 mm.Casios Edifice collection takes its aesthetic inspiration from F1 cars, resulting in a collection of timepieces that combine dynamic form with intricately detailed watch faces. Furthermore, higher end models feature Casios exclusive Multi Mission Drive movement. Each watch features five separate motors to ensure that power is never diverted from the hands. In summary, each watch offers Speed and Intelligence, as well as precision engineering. Casio was established in 1946 by Japanese engineer Tadao Kashio.
The company entered the watch market in 1974 with the release of the Casiotron, which was the worlds first Auto Calendar watch. Only eleven years after entering this field Casio reshaped global thought about the functions a watch should perform, this began with the release of the legendary G-Shock family. Innovation and world firsts have defined the companys history ever since.
The most striking of these being the release of the first ever touch screen watch in 1991, 24 years before the Apple Watch. Also, the first ever wrist camera watch in 2000. Casio have been producing smartwatches decades before the term ever came into circulation.
Casio has firmly cemented its reputation as a famously reliable and precise name in the watch world.
