I am a huge fan of the Casio G-Shock range and like all G-Shock wearers sometimes we feel the need for a more formal watch, without losing the grunt that a G-Shock affords.
This is where Casio noticed a spot in the market, and hence you have the Casio Edifice range. These watches are huge in Japan, almost a sub culture which started from the G-Shock fraternity. You will find a huge number of G-Shock collectors are equally keen on the Edifice and whilst often ‘cheaper’ in the European market some of the Edifice range can sport a price tag amongst collectors that would make Tag or Rolex wearers raise an eyebrow!
This is my first dip into the Edifice world and I have to say I am hugely impressed, this thing is big, heavy, obvious and at the same time, sleek, and tidy.
I won’t waste anyone’s time with a review, or insult anyone’s intelligence, but here are the top points…
1. It is a watch, it tells the time!
2. It also tells the date!
3. It has a chronograph.
4. It even tells you the day!
A few serious points I will make though,
1. This watch feels exceptionally well put together.
2. It is heavy.
3. It is big!
