Casio to Release New Racing Car-Inspired 6K Carbon EDIFICE Watches in Collaboration with Scuderia AlphaTauri

February 25, 2021

EQB-1000AT

Tokyo, February 25, 2021 — 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 EQB-1000AT and ECB-10AT, which are made with 6K carbon,*1 are collaboration models designed with the Formula One™ team Scuderia AlphaTauri.

  • *1 A material woven with filaments that each consist of 6,000 carbon fibers.

All eyes are on Scuderia AlphaTauri, the F1™ team whose driver Pierre Gasly took the checkered flag in last September’s Italian Grand Prix. The team’s cutting-edge technologies and passionate pursuit of speed perfectly match the EDIFICE brand concept, and Casio has been an official partner since 2016, when the team was known as Scuderia Toro Rosso.

The new EQB-1000AT and ECB-10AT watches mark the second collaboration with the team, this one coming after their name change to Scuderia AlphaTauri last year. The dial and bezel of the EQB-1000AT and the dial of the ECB-10AT are made of 6K carbon, which is produced with high-strength carbon fiber like the material used in racing car wings and floors. The team’s navy-blue color sets the overall tone, while the team’s logo is engraved on the dials, case backs, and band loops.

Both models feature robust sapphire crystals for peace of mind even in the most grueling of races. The watches automatically adjust the time when paired with a smartphone using the dedicated app, providing the highly accurate time team members rely on when scheduling their days down to the minute. The app also features about 300 cities to choose from to set world time quickly and easily — ideal for a team that travels the world.
