G-SHOCK Releases Limited-Edition MR-G Timepieces Inspired by Kachi-Iro, The Japanese Color for Winning



Latest Luxury Models Pay Homage to the Spirit of Victory Japanese Samurai Warriors

DOVER, NJ, marzo 3, 2021— Today, Casio announces 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 including:
  • Resistencia al impacto
  • Resistente al agua a 200 m
  • Resistencia magnética
  • Tough Solar
  • Super Illuminator LED light with Afterglow
  • Dual Time (27 Time Zones & Auto DST)
  • Alarma diaria
  • 1/1 Sec. Stopwatch (24H)
  • 1/1 Countdown Timer (24H)
  • Calendario completamente automático
  • 5 Months Battery Life with Normal Use

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.

Acerca de G-SHOCK
El reloj G-SHOCK de Casio, resistente a golpes, es sinónimo de dureza, se creó a partir del sueño del desarrollador, el señor Ibe, de “crear un reloj que nunca se rompiera”. Más de 200 muestras hechas a mano se crearon y se probaron hasta la destrucción, pero finalmente en 1983, el primer G-SHOCK, ahora icónico, llegó a las tiendas de Japón y comenzó a establecerse como “el reloj más resistente de todos los tiempos”. Cada reloj reúne los 7 elementos: resistencia a impactos eléctricos, resistencia a gravedad, resistencia a bajas temperaturas, resistencia a vibraciones, resistencia al agua, resistencia a golpes y dureza. El reloj cuenta con innovaciones y tecnologías de Casio para evitar que sufra golpes directos, lo que incluye componentes internos protegidos con uretano y módulos de cronometraje suspendidos en la estructura del reloj. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve, continuing to support on Mr. Ibe’s mantra “never, never give up." www.gshock.com.
