Casio Referees Watch
CASIO Introduces the Official 2006 FIFA World Cup Germany™ Referee Watch
Sporty New Timepiece PHYS RFT-100WC Specially Selected by FIFA
Kanga Sport is pleased to announce the release of the PHYS RFT-100WC, a special sports watch for football referees. The watch was selected as the official referee watch for the 2006 FIFA World Cup Germany, which gets underway this coming June. It will be supplied to all referees officiating in the event. This is the first time in the history of the FIFA World Cup that a timepiece has been chosen as the official referee watch. CASIO intends for this watch, selected for the ultimate football competition, to be used by 2006 FIFA World Cup referees as well as referees of all levels of football competition, and therefore will offer this model to the general public in February. In creating the PHYS RFT-100WC, CASIO brought together expertise cultivated through the development of a broad array of sport watches, incorporating the opinions of leading football referees and FIFA. The watch was designated as the official 2006 FIFA World Cup Germany™ referee watch on the strength of the following functionality:
- With its ability to record stoppage time, the stopwatch function is ideal for football games.
There are two stopwatches at the top and bottom of the LCD. Press the button and the two watches will start to count the time simultaneously. If the game is stopped, the top watch can be stopped simply by pressing the button, while the bottom watch will continue running. The stoppage time is indicated by the difference between the top and bottom watches, when the bottom watch reads forty-five minutes.
- The Start/Stop button is easy to operate and is designed to avoid error
- The large LCD enables the referee to check the time at a quick glance even when on the move
- The vibration function ensures that the referee is alerted when forty-five minutes have passed, even when the crowd is roaring
