Casio and Honda have teamed up for a limited edition Edifice watch that celebrates Honda's long association with the pinnacle of motorsport, Formula One.

Called the Edifice ECB-S100HR Honda Racing Championship White Edition, the watch is, as Casio fans might have guessed, based on the Edifice ECB-S100 but given some special touches.

To start, the watch is rendered in the iconic Championship White colour of Honda. This was the colour of Honda's first F1 car, the RA271. It's also the signature colour of Honda's Type R cars.

The periphery of the dial also features a chequered flag pattern that signifies the many victories of Honda.

Honda dominated F1 in the mid to early Nineties as an engine supplier. It won the World's Constructor's Championship with Williams in 1986 and 1987, and then with McLaren from 1988 to 1991.

Since the watch is based on the ECB-S100, it has a prominent countdown counter on the dial. Additionally, it has features such as Tough Solar, which means it's solar-powered; and Smartphone Link, which enables users to connect the watch to their phone via the Edifice Connected app for easy time adjustment and time-syncing.

Thereafter, it will be available at Edifice retailers and at all G-Shock stores from 3 December 2021.
