Casio Edifice, creators of motorsport-inspired watches, have announced the release of a new model in to the EDIFICE line – the Scuderia Toro Rosso Limited Edition EFR-554TR.
The sporty timepiece marks Casio’s first partnership watch with the Formula One team Scuderia Toro Rosso, and follows the brand becoming an official partner of the racing team in January this year.

The team’s logo is emblazoned on the watch face and caseback, and the timepiece itself comes packaged with a display stand and commemorative card.

We look forward to the future success of the team.”
