The four new models, the EQB-900TR-2A, EFS-S520TR-1A, EFR-559TR-2A, and EFR-559TRP-2A watches are the fourth series of partnership models with Casio Computer Co., Ltd.
The watches feature colour schemes inspired by our STR13's livery. The blue base colour is accented with striking red lines and silver inset dials and index marks. All four models feature our team and EDIFICE logos engraved on the back case and come in special packaging. To coincide with the launch of the new range, Scuderia Toro Rosso driver Brendon Hartley recently took the skies over Melbourne in a fighter jet to put the new timepieces to the ultimate time test.
For New Zealander Brendon, it was his first taste of the exhilaration of a jet fighter. He set himself the task of taking off at Essendon airfield to the north of Melbourne and arriving over the Albert Park circuit, scene of the recent Australian Grand Prix, to a target time set by his Casio EDIFICE watch.
Brendon said: "Time is everything in Formula OneTM – as it is in a jet fighter – which can reach speeds of 750kmh. I enjoyed the experience a lot, and this is something I will remember for sure, but I much prefer the high speed I get while driving my F1 car on track! Having synchronised our watches, we arrived over Albert Park right on time."
The new range, the fourth series of partnership models, combine dynamic design with advanced technology in line with the EDIFICE brand concept of Speed and Intelligence.
