Casio has recently announced the latest additions to its EDIFICE line of metal watches based on the concept of Speed & Intelligence. The new ERA-300 watches are multi-function chronographs featuring compass bearing and temperature indicators. With the addition of Casio’s Neon Illuminator technology, they are also much easier to read at night. The watch indicators, dials and hands are coated with a special luminous ink that absorbs the photic energy of black light and emits light, causing each coated part to glow vividly. Many colours are possible by using differently coloured fluorescent coatings, thereby enabling a wide range of design possibilities and visibility variations.
The new EDIFICE ERA-300 watches are equipped with compass bearing and temperature functions, which enable wearers to check their bearings and temperature conditions at a glance, as well as a full range of stopwatch functions. In addition, the new watches also feature Neon Illuminator, which displays information from the watch’s multiple functions vividly at night. When the direct button in the 9 o’clock position is pressed, the second hand immediately points north.
The new watches are also equipped with a bearing memory that indicates the bearing from a starting point to a destination, enabling wearers to quickly check if they are on course. Like other EDIFICE watches, the ERA-300 models also include a full range of stopwatch functions, including a 1/20-second stopwatch, split time mode and 100 lap memories.
The face of the ERA-300 watches boast a multidimensional look, integrating digital and analog design in order to clearly display information provided by various watch functions. The watches also boast design features that capture the sense of speed, including the two inset dials that evoke the look of dashboard gauges.
