G-Shock seals victory with latest MR-G


Casio has launched the latest additions to its luxury G-SHOCK MR-G Series, with the introduction of the Kachi-Iro Collection.

The brand-new MRGB2000B-1A and MRGB2000R-1A take inspiration from kachi-iro, the color of winning and victory in Japanese culture.


Kachi-iro is a dark navy-blue color that was preferred by the native samurai warriors and was often used for armor and helmets.

The MRGB2000B-1A boasts a full metal band, derived from the base MRGB2000.

A traditional Japanese scale pattern is used on the surface of the dial, while the outer face is cut to a shape that resembles a Japanese fan, creating a stunning impression.

The gentle concave surfaces of the hour markers resemble the curve of a samurai sword, while the inner surface of the bezel, inset dials, and logo all incorporate the bold kachi-iro color.

The MRGB2000R-1A model offers a durable fluorine rubber band with a distinctive Bishamon tortoise shell finish—a symbol of strength in Japan since ancient times.

While both models are equipped with a deep layered hardening titanium case, the unique bezel of the MRGB2000R-1A is made of recrystallized titanium.

Heat treating titanium creates a distinctive crystal pattern on its surface which resembles the nie on Japanese sword blades.

Both models incorporate ancient Japanese strength and aesthetics that pair well with G-SHOCK’s absolute toughness and top technical features such as Tough Movement, Multi-Band 6 Atomic Timekeeping, and Full Time Link Bluetooth connectivity.

Each of the new timepieces also come equipped with standard G-SHOCK technology.

Via the dedicated MR-G Connected Smartphone app, a graphical display of time reception status, solar power generation status, and internal history updates can be tracked. In addition, home city/world time swapping, alarm & time settings as well as an expansion to 300 city word time can be achieved.

There’s also a unique phone finder function that allows the user to ping their smartphone from the watch to locate it within range.

The MRGB2000B-1A and MRGB2000R-1A will retail for $3,000 each and will be available beginning this March at select G-SHOCK retailers, the G-SHOCK Soho Store and gshock.com.
