Casio to Release EDIFICE with Inset Dial Featuring Planet Earth Motif
"The EQB-600D features 3D Globe Dial, a dome-shaped multidimensional inset dial with an Earth motif that displays the world time in an imaginative and aesthetically pleasing way
. The finely detailed Earth motif is realized using the advanced molding techniques of Yamagata Casio Co., Ltd., the production base of Casio in Japan. A polarized deposition finish makes the color change at different viewing angles, adding further refinement to the watch
.3D Globe Dial works in conjunction with the world time shown on the inset dial at the 8 o’clock position, and it gradually rotates once every 24 hours just like Earth.
The curved inset dial hand indicates the time zone for the world time city. When the inset dial hand is in the upper half of the 3D Global Dial, it indicates that it is nighttime (between 6:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.) in that time zone, and when in the lower half, it indicates that it is daytime (between 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.) in that time zone. This provides a visual daytime and nighttime indication, in addition to the time indication.
