Here’s a new Casio EDIFICE Honda Racing timepiece. Unlike previous Casio x Honda Racing EDIFICE wrist watches, Casio x Honda Racing EQS-930HR ain’t not about Formula 1; it is a celebration of Honda Racing’s achievement in the MotoGP.
The Casio x Honda Racing EQS-930HR is a special timepiece released to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the 1961 Honda victory in Round 2 of the 250cc Gran Prix in West Germany, where Kunimitsu Takahashi became the first Japanese rider to win a motorcycle road racing world championship. The motorcycle was the Honda Racing RC162 [JP].
For this commemorative racing timepiece, it gets a bezel and dial that evokes the bike’s hammered aluminum fairing. Meanwhile, the black dial is accented with red inspired by the RC162’s fuel tank, and the color of the bike’s body, silver. The dial also features a striking yellow line motif as well as Honda logo as it appeared in 1961.
Rounding the package is a genuine leather band which Casio said serves to remind of the racing suit.
It is a beautiful watch which motorcycle racing fans will appreciate. Even if you are not a fan, the watch is beautiful on its own.
As far as the watch goes, it is based on the EQS-930 which touts Casio’s innovative shadow-dispersing solar cells under the inset dials that work to enable smaller amount of light to get through the dial is plenty to power the watch. No words on the availability and pricing yet.
