Casio Edifice Tough Solar 5289 (Cased in China), June 2013
My first watch purchase after almost 2 Years!
I bought the last watch, the Edifice 5165, in September 2011. Seeing all the Edifice advertising in conjunction with Formula One and Red Bull Racing must have turned me weak. Seriously, it is simply amazing how the Edifice line has developed in the last two years. The quality was always amazing, but I think the finish has been taken to the next level. Also the designs are getting better and better. The Japanese "Kaizen" way, one small step after one small step. And I must say, in the case of this Edifice, it really works! The watch does not feel like a USD 300 piece. The wrist presence puts this closer to a USD 1'000 watch.
