Casio unveils ERA-200 EDIFICE Chronograph Watch with Direction Sensor


ERA-200DB_WatchCasio announced today the release of a new addition to its Edifice line of metal watches which capture the essence of speed and intelligence. The new ERA-200 is a new addition to the Active Racing Line series which evokes a sense of motor sports energy, and it features a direction sensor. The new ERA-200 is equipped with a unique drive system developed by Casio. The hands are powered by independent motors, making it possible for each one to perform multiple functions. The ERA-200 is the first model in the Edifice line to be equipped with a direction sensor. Just press the direct compass button, located at the 3 o’clock position, and the second hand immediately points north, no matter what mode the watch is in. The new model is also equipped with a bearing memory that saves a preset destination bearing, enabling wearers to quickly check if they are on course.

Like other Edifice watches, the ERA-200 also includes a full range of stopwatch functions, including a 1/100-second stopwatch and split time mode. The results are displayed in both digital and analog formats. Casio also announced the simultaneous release of the EMA-100, a new addition to the Advanced Marine Line of Edifice watches. This line evokes the sense of speed found in marine sports like powerboating and jet skiing. Water resistant to 200 meters, the EMA-100 is equipped with a high-brightness LED backlight and tide graph function that uses an indicator to display tide levels. The hour, minute, and second hands have design features inspired by anchors and marine propellers, and the overall face design conveys a nautical feel.
