Casio EDIFICE Sebastian Vettel Edition

A couple weeks ago I was contacted by a PR company named LaunchGroup, who work with Casio watches. They told me about a new special edition watch being released by Casio, which will be limited to 100 pieces. An exclusive Red Bull Formula 1 inspired racing EDIFICE chronograph watch in honor of Casio ambassador, Sebastian Vettel, who is the youngest Grand Prix winner ever. Since Sebastian drives for Red Bull, they decided to add a splash of red and blue into the dial. Engraved on the case back is Vettel’s signature and logo. After looking deeper into this commemorative piece I was very impressed with the technology and overall design of the watch.

The 45mm case contains a solar powered cell and is water-resistant up to 10 bar (100 meters), but given the nature of the watch I wouldn’t do anything more than snorkel with it. Also inside the case you’ll find a radio signal receiver that uses Wave Ceptor technology. The watch updates itself six times a day, talking to multiple international satellites to provide the most accurate reading of time depending on where you are in the world. Not stopping there, Casio listed the names of 29 cities worldwide around the dial just in case you are curious what time it is in Tokyo.

The glass is mineral, not impossible to scratch, but it is resistant to scratches. The Casio EDIFICE features the date at the 7 o’clock position on the dial and a full automatic calendar. Keeping time isn’t the only precise characteristic of the watch though. The timer function and stop watch offer extremely accurate measurements. The stopwatch records with an accuracy of 1/20 of a second and shows the start and stop time, while the timer records at a 1/1-minute and can be set to the nearest minute up to 24 hours in advance. It seems that this racy sports watch truly captures the essence of the racetrack and the spirit of Sebastian Vettel. Casio watch reference: EQW-M1000SV-1AER
