Casio Edifice EF-552PB-1A2VEF – Unboxing

So personal choice of watch is the Casio G-Shock, however I am partial to the Edifice range also. The Edifice range feels more formal and therefore may be more suitable for certain circumstances.

An Edifice for example may give a better first impression at a job interview than say a bright yellow G-Shock, then again the G-Shock could actually say a lot more about you than a metal banded watch. Who knows? Who cares? Let’s just settle for they are a different style of watch that may suit you sometime when you fancy a different style of watch!

Easy.

This is only my second Edifice but what I have noticed, instantly, is the build quality. These watches are well put together, very well put together. They feel solid, heavy, not weight lifting heavy but re-assuringly heavy. The glass on the face feels tough, it stands up to daily abuse marvellously, my first one still looks brand new. I am not worried if I hear it crunch of the stair’s bannister, or knock of a door or wall, it feels solid. It feels good.

The dimensions and official facts and figures of this model are :

Watch Information
Brand Casio
Model number EDIFICE
Part Number EF-552PB-1A2VEF

Case Thickness 11 millimeters

It is from these facts and figures that my only issue with this model arises, the face is just a little too small for me. I have reasonably big wrists and hands, I am used to wearing something closer in size to the G-Shock GA100 or GX56 series, so me this just feels a little small.

The GA100 comes in at 51mm
The GX56 comes in at 54mm
This Edifice comes in at 44mm

That is the only negative I have to say on this particular watch other than that another great addition to my collection!
