Imaginative World Time Display


Singapore, 13 May 2016 — EQB-600D, the latest addition to the EDIFICE series of high-performance timepieces. Combining dynamic styling with cutting-edge technology, the EQB-600D links to a smartphone and boasts a new multidimensional inset dial featuring a stunning Earth motif, delivering the next step in the evolution of world time through an imaginative display.

3D Globe Dial

The 3D Globe Dial is a dome-shaped multidimensional inset dial with an Earth motif that displays the world time in an imaginative way. The motif is realized using advanced molding techniques at Yamagata Casio Co., Ltd., the production base of Casio in Japan. The watch is further refined with a polarized deposition, making the color change at different viewing angles.

As part of the Global Time Sync collection, EDIFICE watches are able to link with a smartphone to adjust and set the time corresponding with 300 cities globally to enable an advanced time keeping system that delivers time accurately, anywhere in the world.

The 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. Acting as a visual daytime and nighttime indicator, when the inset dial hand is in the upper half of the 3D Global Dial, it signifies nighttime (between 6:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.) in that time zone, and when in the lower half, it signifies daytime (between 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.) in that time zone.

Further extending the time-setting features when linked to a smartphone, Casio developed the Accurate Time System, which is incorporated into the CASIO Watch+ smartphone app. Linking up with the EQB-600D, the system connects to Internet time servers which supply time data, matching the data to a proprietary map database to obtain accurate times by extracting time zone data in the current location and daylight savings data.

Delivering accurate time with innovative features that evoke the unceasing flow of time around the world, the EDIFICE EQB-600D will be available at all CASIO G-FACTORY stores in Singapore from June 2016. The timepiece will be available at a recommended retail price of SGD699.00
