"Casio's EQB500 and EQB600 feature bold and functional designs with cutting-edge technology and we are so proud to announce to shoppers in the Pacific Northwest that these elegant timepieces will be available in their area at Fred Meyer Jewelers." Rich Feature-Set and Unique Design The EQB500 and EQB600 are stylish, yet practical solutions that meet the needs for a consumer's busy lifestyle. This EQB600's main dial displays the Home Time (the time and date of the user's current home city), while the inset dome-shaped dial displays the current time zone in the selected World Time city in a 24-hour format over a world map. This 3D globe dial, installed at the 3 o'clock position, rotates once a day in time with Earth's rotation, with a small round hand indicating the time zone of the selected World Time city. The EQB600 has a high-torque dual-coil motor that provides the power to drive the 3D globe dial. While reproducing an image of the earth's rotation on the dial, it changes settings with smooth movements. A dual layered bezel of stainless steel and aluminum along with a 3D dial with discernible edges is mounted on a metal case. Beauty communicating an overflow of strength and intelligence is compressed in its simple confident styling. In addition to the 3D globe, there are molded 3D time indicators combining straight and curved lines which have been produced in molds made using Yamagata CASIO's micro-fabrication technologies. A slanted surface representing a curve has been modeled to emphasize the dial's appearance of depth.
