When it comes to playing it safe on the water, timing is everything. Casio’s latest marine watch, the Edifice EMA-100B, is a great general-purpose timekeeper. The analogue tide and moon phase displays help you determine when best to head offshore. Its anti-reverse rotary bezel and 200 metre depth rating and countdown timer (think decompression stops and the like) make the Casio Edifice EMA-100B a genuine divers’ watch. The stopwatch and light pastel blue LED illuminator will come in handy for those wanting to identify lighthouses at night (done by timing and noting each one’s particular flash combination).
Other features include a thermometer, 5 daily alarms (with 1 snooze), selectable illumination duration and hourly time signal.
Price: about R4 000. Contact distributors James Ralph on 011-314 8888 or visit www.jamesralph.co.za
