Casio to release EDIFICE model with Honda Racing

By CARSIFU | 24 September 2021

TOKYO: Casio Computer Co., Ltd. announced today the release of the ECB-S100HR Honda Racing Championship White Edition, the latest collaboration with Honda Racing in the EDIFICE line of high-performance metal chronographs based on the brand concept of "Speed and Intelligence."

The collaboration between Honda Racing and EDIFICE has evolved since 2018 from a shared dedication to leveraging high-tech capabilities in their global pursuits.

The ECB-S100HR pays tribute to Honda's history and achievements in F1 by drawing its design inspiration from the Honda RA271.

Back in 1964, the RA271 was the first entry by a Japanese automaker in an F1 race, with its white body and red rising sun.


This body colour, dubbed "Championship White," became a symbol of Honda's racing spirit.

The outer ring of the dial on the ECB-S100HR is finished with Championship White paint, while the inset dial and buttons are accented with red.

The periphery of the glass features a printed pattern that evokes a checkered flag, a nod to Honda's many victories. The leather band features a two-tone colour scheme, with the outer side rendered in white and the underside in red.

The ECB-S100HR offers a comfortable fit on the wrist with its slim, mid-size case and useful features including the Tough Solar power system, which converts light to power the watch, as well as Bluetooth connectivity and a high-luminosity double LED light.

The watch pairs with a smartphone using a dedicated app, to automatically adjust to the correct time and enable the user to select from any of over 300 cities for the world time.

The ECB-S100HR comes with a Time & Place function that records the current date/time and position on a map within the app by just pressing a button on the watch, allowing users to check where they were and when. The inset dial indicator at the 9 o'clock position counts down to the alarm or target time, starting from 30 minutes in advance.
