Introducing a collaboration timepiece featuring the Honda Type R, a car with a passion for delivering the ultimate in motorsports, and the EDIFICE line of chronographs dedicated to expressing a motorsports worldview. Concepts regarding the importance of “true essence” and “the senses” along with a passion for craftsmanship resonated with us when we spoke with the head developer of the Honda Type R cars. We were inspired to create a special design that evokes the racing spirit of Honda with meticulous attention to colors, materials, and finishes, including faithful reproductions of the “Championship White” hue and “Red H” badge — iconic symbols of Honda’s Type R cars.
Meeting with the head developer of the Honda TYPE R cars, the EDIFICE development team was inspired by the Honda concept of introducing the “true essence” and “sense” of racing to the road car, and set out to integrate these ideas into the design of the EDIFICE Honda TYPE R Edition. The “true essence” of racing is reflected in the timepiece’s readability and fit. Glow-in-the-dark paint applied to the index marks and hands ensures outstanding readability, while the genuine-leather band with its deployment buckle and Alcantara material lining ensures an even more comfortable fit.
Turning to the “sense” of racing, this timepiece feels almost like “wearing” a Honda TYPE R car on your wrist. The design is packed with symbols of the TYPE R — the “Red H” badge, authentic Championship White paint, buttons featuring the R mark, the TYPE logo on the band loop and case back, and the Alcantara material and red stitching actually used in the interior of TYPE R cars.
Finally, the entire TYPE R lineage is honored with iconic TYPE R model codes printed on the white leather band. The case is made with carbon fiber-reinforced resin for both strength and lightness. The timepiece delivers practicality, too, with Smartphone Link via Bluetooth®, Tough Solar charging system, high-brightness LED light, and scratch-resistant, highly transparent sapphire crystal. Tap into the smartphone app for automatic adjustment to the correct time, effortless watch operation, and easy management of World Time and alarm settings.
