The ECB800 series of EDIFICE metal chronograph models were developed and evolved with feedback from members of professional automotive racing teams, allowing this race lap chronograph to be packed with styling and functionality inspired by the world of motorsports.

Among the things that make this watch different is the adoption of a large LCD with a multi-functional display capability facilitated development of a chronograph dial combining analogue and digital displays.

The solar-powered ECB800 series includes advanced features and functions that allow wireless Bluetooth linking with your smartphone device. Like some of its other counterparts we've covered, this watch includes automatic time adjustment, world time for over 300 cities, phone finder, a 1/1000-second stopwatch, target time and speed indicators, super illuminator, tough solar and is water resistant up to 100 meters.
