If there’s one thing other than cars that we Torque-sters love, it’s watches. We love food, too, but that’s another story for another day.
Cars and timepieces are both engineering marvels. And we like nothing more than discovering what makes them tick.
CASIO EDIFICE ECB-10
Casio says that their Edifice model line is designed around the concepts of speed and intelligence.
The timepiece is built from a forged stainless steel case. Its octagonal bezel and four screws are described as “evoking a professional power tool used for racecar maintenance”.
The Casio Edifice ECB-10 comes with automatic time zone adjustment and a useful schedule timer.
To use these features, you’ll need to sync the watch with your timepiece via Bluetooth. The time is adjusted to your location automatically.
There are 38 stored time zones. That sounds handy for travellers.
To use the schedule timer, you need a calendar app. That means Google Calendar for Android users and Calendar for iPhone owners.
The watch is essentially another alarm that can help you stick to your scheduled tasks/meetings/errands.
Casio Edifice ECB-10 models have stopwatch and countdown functions as well. The watch’s own calendar is correct till 2099.
Casio claims an accuracy of +/- 15 seconds per month if you don’t sync the watch with your phone.
The chronograph’s quartz movement is powered by a CR2016 battery and has a service life of about two years. You can swim with the timepiece as well, since it’s water-resistant to 100m.
Prices for the five new Casio Edifice ECB-10 models range from $219 to $289.
