To celebrate Sebastian Vettel s achievement of becoming the youngest ever Formula One race winner at 2008 s Italian Grand Prix, watch maker Casio have created a limited edition watch.
According to Casio, the Edifice EQW-M1000-SV-1AER was created to reflect Vettel s “perfectly timed manoeuvres and near faultless driving.â€
Taking inspiration from his current team, Red Bull Racing, the watch is predominantly red, blue and yellow. Encased in solid steel, the Edifice watch features Vettel s signature and logos engraved on it.
Wave Ceptor technology is used to ensure that the watch is always perfectly on time. Wave Ceptor watches receive time signals several times a day from various timing services around the world, most of whom use ultra-accurate atomic clocks. By synchronising these signals, Wave Ceptor watches are able to achieve long-term time accuracy.
The limited edition Vettel watch also features a stopwatch, automated calendar, solar rechargeable power cell and tachymeter. Each watch also comes with a gift package that includes an autographed photograph of Sebastian Vettel and a badge.
Available at the Casio store on Carnaby Street, London, or from jeweller H. Samuel s website, there are just 100 of these unique, collectable watches on offer. Priced at just £350, it is anticipated that they will sell out quickly.
