This model dresses up the top-of-the-line G-Shock, the MR-G, in the traditional Japanese color known as kachi-iro (winning color). This dark navy blue has a long history in Japan, where it was preferred by samurai and was often used for armor and helmets. Likewise, this new MR-G model adopts the look and very spirit of the samurai warrior.
The MRGB2000R-1A model comes with a durable fluorine rubber strap with the distinctive Bishamon tortoise-shell finish of Bishamonten armor, a symbol of strength in Japan since ancient times.
A typical Japanese scale pattern is used on the dial's surface, while the outer periphery is cut to a shape that resembles a Japanese fan or folding screen, creating a stunning impression. The gentle concave surfaces of the hour markers resemble the curve of a samurai sword. The inner surface of the bezel, inset dials, and logo all incorporate kachi-iro. The bezel is made of recrystallized titanium. Heat treating titanium creates a distinctive crystal pattern on its surface, which resembles the nie on Japanese sword blades.
This model is equipped with time signal reception and Bluetooth communication capabilities for smartphone connectivity in terms of function. This MR-G model incorporates ancient Japanese strength and aesthetics, combined with unmatched modern materials, structure, and functions.
