Unboxing and quick look at Casio Edifice EQW-A1100DB-1AJF

Birthday present time again. How time flies..!

Casio has been sponsoring the Red Bull F1 Racing Team for a few years now and the Edifice (means sky scraper/large building) line promoted as the watches worn by the team.

Gotta tell ya, the watch looks pretty amazing. I liked this one for many reasons (solar power, radio controlled time, etc) but also it looks just awesome. The squarish windows, instead of the normally round dials used in other watches, gave this watch a different look. Casio has a more expensive Oceanus line of watches that also look amazing. In the end, this one looked more different and turned out to be the watch I decided to go with.

Interestingly, because this is a Casio, wife called this a “toy” watch. To her and her father, the proper Japanese watches are Seiko and Citizen. For me, Casio was my first “serious” watch after my Mickey mouse watched died after 1 month. And that Casio digital watch just kept going and going. No amount of drops and bangs by the hands of a primary school boy stopped it and nothing couldn’t be fixed by a battery change. In the end the band broke and that was how I moved to the next watch and eventually away from Casio. The G-Shocks popped on the radar every once a while but none really grabbed me. Here I am again with a Casio, my long lost friend.

Here is the required unboxing video. 🙂
