All About Casio Edifice Watches
Elegant, stylish, intelligent and high-performance, Casio Edifice is all things smart, handsome and powerful. A legacy timepiece to adorn the hands of men, the Edifice has enthralled watch connoisseurs for over 2 decades.
The Edifice comes in different alluring models, bringing to the fore sensible innovation and timeless style. From bands in resin, nylon and metal, and generous water resistance, to high-end solar-powered and smartphone-compatibility features, the Edifice is quite impressive.
The Edifice comes from Casio, a brand with a rich legacy. Casio was founded by the Kashio brothers – Tadao Kashio, Kazuo, Yukio and Toshio in April 1946.
Did you know that the first invention of the Kashio brothers was the Yubiwa smoking pipe? Shaped
as a finger ring, this device allowed users to smoke cigarettes all the way to the end. Then, in 1957, came the 14-A, the first all-electric calculator in the world.
Led by Toshio, the company reached greater heights of innovation and growth. Tadao took on the company’s financial leadership. Yukio managed production while Kazuo led the sales end of the company.
The Brand Emblem
Toshio Kashio, who designed the Casio calculator, was also the individual behind the company’s emblem. The 4 highlighting K-pointers in the emblem represent the Kashio brothers and their solid ties with each other. The emblem represents the founding brothers’ philosophy of working in unison.
The First Casio Watch
It was in 1974 that Casio introduced its first watch – the Casiotron QW02. Casiotron was the first electronic watch in the world to have a self-adjustable calendar. Since then, the company has been one of the pioneers in advanced watch technology and innovation.
Casio Watches in Later Years
Casio saw the release of its extremely popular G-SHOCK shock-resistant watch in November 2002.
This was followed by a line of radio-controlled and solar-based watches. These timepieces came with a complete metal case.
Radio-controlled G-SHOCK was introduced in June 2008. This watch was the first in the world to feature a Multi Band 6 technology. This was followed by the launch of Tough Movement technology for the brand’s radio-controlled watches. These timepieces were known for their sleek design and high functionality.
In December 2009, the G-SHOCK saw a total of 50 million watches being shipped across the world. In 2016, Casio showed its expertise in watchmaking with the Smart Outdoor Watch, aimed at wearers with an intense outdoor life. This outdoor watch was designed to perform well in rain and other outdoor situations.
The following years saw Casio introducing more advanced product lines, featuring some of the finest timepieces the world would come to love.

The Solid Urban Line features designs that are simple, functional and blend in naturally with modern urban lifestyles. These timepieces have been designed to deliver a feel of luxury to wearers.

There is then solar power that powers this timepiece to accomplish tasks with ease and efficiency. This power keeps the watch stable even when your timepiece is busy performing power-consuming tasks.
The entire technology and features reside in a wonderfully slim design.
