TOKYO, September 5, 2014— Casio Computer Co., Ltd. announced today the release of new limited edition of EDIFICE watches to celebrate Casio's partnership with Infiniti Red Bull Racing. The EDIFICE line of metal watches captures the essence of "Speed and Intelligence."

With its youthful image and energy, Infiniti Red Bull Racing strives to make its cars the fastest in the world by leveraging outstanding technology development capabilities. The team pursues intelligent racing strategies aimed at getting winning results. Casio believes that this approach is a perfect match for its EDIFICE brand concept, and has supported the Red Bull Racing Team as an official partner since 2009. The Infiniti Red Bull Racing team has won the World Constructor's Championship four years in a row since the 2011 Formula One™ season.


Casio is now releasing the Championship Gold series of five new EDIFICE watches. Casio designed the new watches using five base models, including its EQB-500, which can connect to smartphones via Bluetooth®*1 SMART technology and make it easy to set home city time and world time, and the ERA-300D featuring Casio's popular Neon Illuminator, which employs a built-in black light LED that makes the watch's specially coated lettering and hands glow.

For this new series, Casio boldly finished the watch hands and indicators in a striking gold color to celebrate the outstanding accomplishment of the Infiniti Red Bull Racing Team, and featured the team's colors of blue, yellow and red in various places, including the inset dials and second hands. Moreover, the Infiniti Red Bull Racing logo is prominently displayed on the watchface and the packaging. With an exclusive collector's card included in each package, the products exude premium quality worthy of their limited edition status.


Hiroshi Nakamura, Senior Executive Managing Officer and a member of the Board of Directors at Casio, had this to say: "Based on our popular and newly produced models, we have designed this lineup to capture the image of Infiniti Red Bull Racing. Among the new models, the EQB-500RB in particular makes it easy to set times to international time zones,so it is an excellent watch for pe*-ople who travel around the world like the team members of Infiniti Red Bull Racing.


Christian Horner, Team Principal, Infiniti Red Bull Racing, said: "We are delighted to partner with such a strong brand such as Casio. It was evident from day one that they shared our passion for precision engineering and like us, they are single minded in their pursuit for excellence. The new EQB range is another step forwards in this relationship. From a personal point of view, the use of digital technology presented in this range of watches is excellent; having a watch that synchronises perfectly to the world time via a smartphone will be of great help for the members of the Infiniti Red Bull Racing Team as we travel around the world."
