“Our latest EDIFICE timepiece is the ideal combination of style, innovation and design,” said David Johnson, Vice President of Casio’s Timepiece Division. “We know consumers are always on the hunt for a versatile timepiece that is both functional and looks great. The new EQB1000D-1A offers that and more in a slim and stylish package.”

For those who travel across time zones, the EQB1000D-1A provides an additional layer of accurate timekeeping when paired to a smartphone.

Casio’s EQB1000D-1A also features a Tough Solar chronograph with enhanced charging technology that can efficiently store energy for power as well as maintain a charge.
