Casio Edifice EQB-500 Features Automatic DST Adjusting and Bluetooth

Daylight Saving Time (DST) ends on the first Sunday of November each year, and on Sunday, November 1 at 1:59:59 a.m., in complying areas across the country everyone will receive an extra hour in their day. Whether going on a trip overseas or across town, Casio America, Inc., has a variety of timepieces, like the latest EDIFICE EQB-500 which offers Casio’s Mobile Link Technology, to help consumers - and especially business travelers – stay in sync with the time change.

“At Casio, we know our consumers are constantly on the go, and they need a timepiece to keep up with their busy pace - whether it’s taking a red-eye coast to coast or jet-setting overseas,” said David Johnson, Vice President of Casio’s Timepiece Division. “With the EDIFICE EQB-500, we make adjusting for Daylight Saving Time or switching time zones a seamless process so consumers don’t miss a beat.”
