* F1-inspired Casio Edifice range addresses the needs of global travellers
* Bluetooth Smart technology pairs watch and smartphone to correct displayed time for world travellers
* Assured exclusivity with strictly limited production runs
The highly anticipated 2015 autumn/winter collections from Casio Edifice represent the latest advancements in watch technology and precision. Each Edifice timepiece draws inspiration from the exciting world of top-level motorsport; and none more so than the eye-catching limited edition models designed in conjunction with the four-time Formula 1 champions at Infiniti Red Bull Racing.
Like brothers on arms, there is a strong family connection and a common motorsport-inspired design theme shared between models in both collections. But Casio has ensured that each model remains an individual, offering at least one unique feature to differentiate it from the rest.
The four models that make up the core Casio Edifice autumn/winter collection feature a bold, three-dimensional design theme based around the needs of global travellers balancing activities in different time zones. All have an attractive watch-within-a-watch design, which allows the wearer to simultaneously display the time in two different time zones. An additional element of two of these models is revolutionary Bluetooth Smart technology, which allows the watch to be paired with a compatible smartphone* and then adjusted remotely via a free-to-download Casio application.
Meanwhile, the accompanying six models in the Casio Edifice x Infiniti Red Bull collection up the ante with strong specification levels and stand-out design features inspired by the high-tech materials found within the team’s F1 pit garage. They add a tasteful twist to the seasonal range with a distinctive blue theme, more complex face designs, and attractive ion-plated detailing across the bezels. The bodies and straps are available in either silver or black and in a choice of all-metal or metal and plastic construction, depending on model.
