To be honest I never thought such a thing could be done, even though Casio has been experimenting with making sophisticated digital functions in analog format for a while.
Frankly I like the looks of this Casio a bit better. Some people are going to take one look at this dial and sigh at how complex it is. This is the opposite of a simple watch dial. In fact, Casio designers did just about everything they could do to give it a rich, three-dimensional appearance with as many textures and levels as possible.
There is also the fact that the hands and dials each have at least more than one function depending on the mode the watch is in. I will however say that legibility is better than one expects. There are large easy to see yellowish hour markers and white hands. These have been lume coated and are pretty easy to see in the dark. There is also the date window. Speaking of the manual, this is a must for understanding this watch. Casio positions this Edifice Black Label watch as one of their higher-end timepieces, which means they have designed it to be convenient to live with.
For Casio that means that it is light-powered and syncs to a local atomic clock using radio signals. So the Japanese quartz movement is solar any light really powered, and should always be accurate.
It is set to sync itself with a local atomic clock 6 times a day. In power saving mode the battery can last about 5 months. Regardless, it is a good idea to store the watch where it has access to light. Those deep-set areas on the dial that look like green carbon fiber are where light enters to reach the photovoltaic cells. The world time function is neat, because it uses the upper left subdial to show you the reference time.
In fact, you can choose to have the reference time on the main dial, and the second time zone on the little subdial. Again, consult the manual for this. When operating the hands are all flying about rapidly. It is an intense little feat of engineering, and relies of five different small motors. You also need pretty good vision to see all the little numbers.
Seeing the miniature ballet of hands moving around never seems to get old. What makes the watch harder to use is the lack of labels on the pushers on the side of the case. Many digital Casio watches try to label the hands, at least generally so that you know what they do in most situations.
That sort of exists here, you need to take the watch off to see them, and it can be a bit confusing and frustrating to figure things out without the manual. I recommend learning how to use the basic functions, and not throwing the booklet away for when you need it. Using a steel case that has been IP black coated, this Edifice watch has an impressive stance with its multi-color black, green, and yellow dial.
The case wears a bit smaller than it is because of the thick bezel, but it is The case is water resistant to meters and has a mineral crystal.
The bracelet is integrated into the case and has a push button deployment clasp. Actually on the back of the watch Casio calls it a Wave Ceptor Edifice — there are so many names to keep track of. Now I need to get back to the manual to finish understanding how to set everything. March 28, Related Articles. Subscribe to our Newsletter.
