This Championship White Casio Edifice Watch Is Lit

Casio is celebrating Honda’s motorsports activities with this new Edifice chronograph finished in the iconic Championship White.

Part of Edifice’s metal chronograph line, the ECB-S100HR-1AJR Honda Racing Championship White Edition pays homage to the carmaker’s Formula 1 achievements, particularly with 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 color, dubbed “Championship White,” became a symbol of Honda's racing spirit.

The outer ring of the dial on the ECB-S100HR-1AJR is finished with authentic 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 genuine leather band features a two-tone color scheme, with the outer side rendered in white and the underside in red. An additional black nylon black is also part of the set.

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 efficiently 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-1AJR 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.

The limited edition watch goes on sale in Japan with a price of 46,200 yen (P 21,059).
