Product Details

Introducing the second collaboration between EDIFICE, the high-performance metal chronograph timepiece, and Honda Racing.
Honda Racing, which supplies the power units for the Scuderia Toro Rosso Formula 1 team, and EDIFICE are Japanese brands that are constantly meeting the challenges of motor sports on a global scale. Both brands are very much a part of the Formula 1 world-class racing scene, and these new collaboration models were developed in cooperation with the HRD Sakura R&D facility, which develops Honda automotive motorsports technology.
EQB-1000HR features red and black gradations on the face to capture the image of the instant that a spark ignites the fuel inside an engine cylinder.
The base model of this new timepieces is the high-spec, slim EQB-1000 chronograph. Bluetooth® Smartphone Link, a Tough Solar power system that enables charging even by exposure to fluorescent light, and chronograph timekeeping all come packed into a configuration that is a mere 8.9 mm thin. The result is an amazingly powerful timepiece that is thinner and lighter, and that provides a more comfortable fit to the wrist.
Phone Linking enables a host of useful motorsports features and functions, including highly accurate timekeeping, simple selection from among 300 World Time cities, transfer of 200 lap time records from the watch to the phone, recording of times in units of 1/1000 of a second, and more. Formula 1 races are conducted under strict rules of session punctuality while facing unpredictable conditions that include inclement weather, crashes, and more. Time is literally of the essence and needs to be managed with seconds-level precision, so teams are constantly fighting the clock to avoid penalties incurred if mechanics exceed the allotted time on the grid at the beginning of a race. World Time capabilities are also essential because Honda Racing Formula 1 engineers need to take part in 21 races around the globe while maintaining contact with their R&D team in Japan.
This new limited-edition model was developed through close cooperation between EDIFICE and Honda Racing.
