As of late, the Casio Edifice lineup has really been leaning into motorsports inspiration. Their latest model, the Casio Edifice Sospensione (aka ECB2000) continues that trend, with a hefty does of carbon fiber.
You might see the carbon fiber pattern on the bezel, and sure, that feels like a bit of “go fast”. Where the truly interesting carbon fiber is, however, is in the case. For the first time, a Casio Edifice feature carbon fiber-reinforced resin. Not quite the same idea as forged carbon, but it does look an awful lot like it. It should provide strength and a lighter weight on the wrist.
The Casio Edifice Sospensione is supposed to call to mind the double-wishbone suspension on a race car, which I guess it kind of does? It’s a unique lug configuration, which means you need to stick with the stock straps (either resin or metal bracelet) as the aftermarket won’t have anything that fits this.
While the resin-strap version features a striking red and black color combo, I think the dark argent and blue of the bracelet version comes across as a bit more refined. Either one, it’s going to run you $300, and you get the full suite of functionality (solar power, chronograph functionality, bluetooth connection) that the Edifice lineup is known for. casio.com
