Casio Announces EDIFICE Collaboration Models with Scuderia AlphaTauri Formula One Team
Casio announced today the release of new additions to the EDIFICE line of high-performance metal chronographs based on the brand concept of Speed and Intelligence. The new EQB-1100AT and ECB-20AT watches are collaboration models with Scuderia AlphaTauri Formula One team. Based in Faenza in northern Italy, Scuderia AlphaTauri is a racing team whose roster is filled with up-and-coming young drivers.
With team driver Pierre Gasly’s Italian Grand Prix win in September 2020, the Scuderia AlphaTauri Formula One team is gaining even more attention. The team brings its youthful energy, racing cars powered by outstanding technological innovation, and the passionate pursuit of speed to the Formula One circuit.

The Casio EQB-1100AT and ECB-20AT collaboration models are the first since the team changed its name. The dials feature a gradated navy blue and white color scheme, taking after the Scuderia AlphaTauri team colors and exactly the same navy blue as the EDIFICE brand color.
The Casio ECB-20AT features a navy blue case and band. Both models are inscribed with the team logo on the dial, case back, and band, part of a design that is infused with the world view of Scuderia AlphaTauri.
