Casio Edifice: Behind the design
Aug 29, 2018, 2:04 AM

Casio Edifice, a partner of the Toro Rosso Formula 1 team, is at the forefront of technology when it comes to luxury watches.

Here's a more intimate look into the thought process behind the development and design of each watch.

A lot goes into the look of each chronograph which possess solar powered features among their many qualities. With bold and unique designs combined with simple styling that brings out the essence of the metal, the intricate process gives birth to products with clearly defined identities. Once a design is decided on, a prototype is produced based on a sketch using CAD (computer-aided drawing) and a 3D printer. 

An edgy, striking large index is laid out on the dial. Robust modeling with straight lines and basic tones evokes a strong presence. An inset dial ring constructed of lightweight resin achieves a solid metal look that is balanced with the metal case in a high-quality design, unmatched by rivals.

The detailed craftsmanship that makes such features as the 3D hour markers’ artfully ground forms and the 3D globe dial's complex shape so attractive to viewers is realized by molds manufactured using YAMAGATA CASIO’s fine processing technologies.

Application of a polarizing deposition causes the 3D globe dial's appearance to change depending on the viewing angle. The original color arrived at through trial and error is unmatched in the world. And on the surface, the external design conveys a sense of motion and intelligence.
