    Casio Releases New EDIFICE Watches
    Featuring Tough Solar Power System and Chronograph
    Driven by Five Motors



    EQS-500DB-1A1DREQS-500DB-1A2DR

    EQS-500C-1A1DREQS-500C-1A2DRTOKYO, July 14, 2010 — Casio Computer Co., Ltd., announced today the release of a new chronograph model in its EDIFICE line of metal watches—the EQS-500, featuring a dual-layer face for a dynamic design. The watch also features Casio’s Tough Solar system, which generates power from both sunlight and indoor lighting.


    Capturing the essence of speed and intelligence, EDIFICE metal watches evoke a sense of velocity and motor sports energy with the movement of the hands and distinctive face of the watch. EDIFICE watches are especially popular with young people, thanks to their rich stopwatch functions and standout face designs.

    A chronograph model with water resistance to 100 meters, the EQS-500 features a sporty metal case shaped with prominent edges framing a watch face that evokes the instrument panel and the gears of a sleek automotive machine.

    Expressing precision and speed, the multi-hand watch face is finished with a dual-layer design to emphasize a multi-dimensional feeling. Its hands — driven by five independent motors — move in variegated patterns that suggest dynamic movement. The chronograph dials include a small hand for minutes and seconds at the 8-o’clock position, a second hand in the center position that also displays values of 1/10 of a second, and a small hand at the 3-o’clock position that displays values of 1/100 of a second immediately when the user stops the chronograph.

    The EQS-500 is equipped with a world time function that displays the current time in 29 cities, viewable by matching the center second hand with city codes in the dial ring, as well as Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

    The new lineup includes the EQS-500DB, featuring a metal band and ion-plated bezel in a mirror-finished stainless steel case; and the EQS-500C, featuring a resin band and black, ion-plated stainless steel case and bezel.

    Maybe i might just finally buy my first Edifice. Really digging the EQS-500C-1A1DR.
    Hopefully they will sell at fairly decent prices. The spacings around the hour markers are fairly reminiscent of those on the Gs-1300

    I'd be too happy if they gave away a free magnifying glass with each of those Edifices.

    Oh, another watch with only 24 minutes stopwatch. What does Casio think about?

    It's an evolution but they seem to have gone backwards... it has 5 motors but now there's no CDT?

    Thanks to the OP for pointing it out

    I can deal with the size of the dials, but again, 24 mins STW is just useless for me. I have no idea who they think that's useful for.
    The Search function on vBulletin forums isn't very smart. If you want to search for a complete string in the G-Shock forum, or for posts which include multiple words, use Google, and enter site:forums.watchuseek.com/f17 into the search box. Then use normal google syntax after that to enter your search.
