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). A dark navy blue color with a long history in Japan, the winning color kachi-iro was preferred by samurai, and was often used for armor and helmets. This means that this new MR-G model adopt the very spirit of the samurai warrior.
The MRGB2000R-1A model comes with a durable fluorine rubber band 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 surface of the dial, while the outer periphery of the face 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.
Function-wise, this model is equipped with time signal reception and Bluetooth® communication capabilities for smartphone connectivity. This MR-G model incorporates ancient Japanese strength and aesthetics, combined with unmatched modern materials, structure, and functions.
