EDIFICE collaborates with Honda to create a Type R-inspired timepiece, blending motorsport heritage with elegant design.
In a thrilling fusion of motorsport and horology, Honda has teamed up with Casio’s EDIFICE brand to launch a timepiece that embodies the essence of the iconic Honda Type R. This collaboration brings to life a chronograph that not only captures the “Ultimate Sport” concept but also pays homage to the rich legacy of Honda’s Type R series. The watch, inspired by the Honda Type R echoes the car’s distinctive features as a symbol of Honda’s passion for motorsport. Notably, it incorporates the “Championship White” hue and the “Red H” badge, iconic elements synonymous with the Type R’s racing legacy. The dial ring boasts the legendary “Championship White” color, applied using authentic Honda paint, symbolizing a spirit of challenge and the glory of F1TM racing victories.
Attention to detail is obvious in every aspect of the watch’s design. The dial features a honeycomb pattern reminiscent of the Type R’s front grille, while the inset dial at 9 o’clock showcases a motif inspired by past Type R models, complete with red and white markings and a yellow hand. The band, made of genuine white leather, is printed with the model codes of historic Type R cars and is complemented by an Alcantara underside with red stitching. This timepiece is a tribute to Honda’s relentless pursuit of excellence in motorsport. The metal band loop and case back are engraved with “Type R” logos, and the stopwatch timer button features an “R” mark, encapsulating the Type R worldview of challenging limits to achieve ultimate driving satisfaction. Awaiting its anticipated release later this month, the EDIFICE Honda TYPE R Edition is sure to be a hit amongst car collectors and automotive enthusiasts.
