Hit the throttle with the new Casio Edifice ECB10HR-1A

When it comes to Casio Edifice designs, it’s starting to remind of the old gem regarding Midwestern weather. To paraphrase a bit, if you don’t like the design of today’s Edifice, just wait a bit, because it’ll change soon enough. So, if you didn’t like that last roundup we gave you, there’s a new Honda collaboration waiting for you in the form of the Casio Edifice ECB10HR-1A.

The Casio Edifice ECB10HR-1A is actually an anniversary piece for the brand, as it’s been 20 years since the first Edifice was made available to the public. So, it’s sort of fitting that they’d team up with another Japanese powerhouse brand in Honda.

To that end, you’ve got that signature Honda red showing up in the strap and dial, and you’ve got some other motorsports influences showing up. The dial has a carbon fiber weave pattern to it, you’ve got the tachymeter scale engraved into the bezel, and the retrograde dial of course calls to mind any number of gauges showing up in an instrument cluster.

Past that, you’ve got a lot of the same functionality that we’ve seen in other Casio Edifice models (and fully listed out below), including a Bluetooth connection that greatly simplifies setting and adjusting things on the watch (as well as reminding you how to use the various functions of the watch).

The Casio Edifice ECB10HR-1A is not available just yet. As it stands now, it’s intended to be available in May for the price of $180 – just about the time that (hopefully) we can think about getting back out on the road. edifice.casio.com
