Casio announced the forthcoming release of the EDIFICE EFR-520RB – the latest in the range of Limited Edition EDIFICE watches built in partnership with Red Bull Racing.
Under the concept of “Speed and Intelligence,” EDIFICE watches evoke a sense of velocity and motor-sports energy with the movement of the hands and distinctive watch face. They are especially popular with young people, thanks to their full-featured stopwatch functions and distinctive face designs.
Casio has supported Red Bull Racing as an official partner since 2009, recognizing that the youthful image and energy of the team, as well as its outstanding technology development capabilities, are a perfect match for the EDIFICE brand concept. In the 2011 season, Red Bull Racing won the Formula One™ Constructors’ Championships and the Formula One TM Drivers’ Championships for the second year in a row. Five races have been completed in the 2012 season, and the team is once again delivering good results.
The EFR-520RB is a limited edition model that has been designed in collaboration with Red Bull Racing. It is based on the previously released EFR-520 model, which features a multi layered watch face and dynamic face design. A 1/20-second disk-shaped indicator situated at the 12 o’clock position rotates at high speed when in the stopwatch mode, ensuring precise time measurement. The watch reflects the Red Bull Racing brand featuring the team logo above the numbering on the face and the team colors in various places, with the side buttons and dial edge finished in blue, the small hand in yellow, and the second hand and outer edge of the disk hand finished in red.
As a one-of-a-kind collector’s item, the EFR-520RB comes in a special box with stands for displaying the watch and photographs of the Red Bull Racing team’s drivers and RB8 Formula One™ car.
