Casio Malaysia has just released new additions to its EDIFICE line of high-performance sports chronographs that combine dynamic design with advanced technology. The new EDIFICE Scuderia Toro Rosso Limited Edition comes in 3 models designed in collaboration with the Formula 1 racing team Scuderia Toro Rosso, which Casio has supported as an official team partner since 2016.
The 3 new models – ECB-900TR, EQS-920TR, and EFR-564TR – have colour schemes that adopt the red, blue, and silver colours of the Scuderia Toro Rosso racing machines used for the 2019 championship.
Recommended retail prices for the models at G-Factory outlets in Malaysia are as follow:
ECB-900TR – RM1,499 | EQS-920TR – RM1,199 | EFR-564TR – RM899
Worldview of motorsports
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 colours of the flag of Italy, where the team is based. These details add up to designs truly worthy of collaboration models with the Scuderia Toro Rosso team.
All the models, which come in special packaging, 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 for additional functionality, 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.
