EQB-1100AT / ECB-20AT

TOKYO, September 14, 2020 — Casio Computer Co., Ltd. announced today the release of new additions to the EDIFICE line of high-performance metal chronographs based on the brand concept of “Speed and Intelligence.” The new EQB-1100AT and ECB-20AT watches are collaboration models with Scuderia AlphaTauri Formula One team, winner of the 2020 Italian GP.

Casio had been an official partner of the Scuderia Toro Rosso Formula One team since 2016. This season, the team changed its name to Scuderia AlphaTauri. The EQB-1100AT and ECB-20AT collaboration models are the first since the team changed its name. The dials feature a gradated navy blue and white color scheme, taking after the Scuderia AlphaTauri team colors and exactly the same navy blue as the EDIFICE brand color. The ECB-20AT features a navy blue case and band. Both models are inscribed with the team logo on the dial, case back, and band, part of a design that is infused with the world view of Scuderia AlphaTauri.

The EQB-1100AT features a thin 9.6 mm case and an octagonal bezel combined with carbon, a material extensively used in motorsports. The watch can simultaneously display the time in two cities. The ECB-20AT is based on the earlier ECB-20 model, and is equipped with a Schedule Timer, with the addition of a leather band inscribed with the team logo. On both models, the face is made of scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, tough enough for team mechanics to use in the paddock and pits. The watches also automatically adjust the time when paired with a smartphone using a dedicated app. Both models are inscribed with the team logo on the dial, case back, and band, part of a design that is infused with the world view of Scuderia AlphaTauri. These are truly special collaboration models that support team members who travel around the world and need to schedule things down to the minute.

Scuderia AlphaTauri Formula One Team

Based in Faenza in northern Italy, Scuderia AlphaTauri is a racing team whose roster is filled with up-and-coming young drivers. The team marks a new start in the 2020 season, having changed its name from Scuderia Toro Rosso to Scuderia AlphaTauri. With team driver Pierre Gasly’s Italian Grand Prix win in September 2020, the Scuderia AlphaTauri Formula One team is gaining even more attention. The team brings its youthful energy, racing cars powered by outstanding technological innovation, and the passionate pursuit of speed to the Formula One circuit. Believing these qualities perfectly match the EDIFICE brand concept, Casio has been an official team partner since 2016. Casio and EDIFICE logos will appear on drivers’ racing suits, as well as on the nose sections of the team’s race cars, for the 2020–2021 seasons.
