Each watch painstakingly crafted to perfection.
Shock-resistant Full-metal Body + Bluetooth® + GPS* + Radio-controlled Solar-powered* Timekeeping
From MR-G, the top of the G-SHOCK lineup, comes a new limited-edition model with Bluetooth®, GPS, and solar power in a design that reflects ancient Japanese workmanship and culture.
The Japanese samurai sword is widely regarded as a work of art that embodies the very soul of the samurai warrior. One of its fittings is the tsuba (hilt guard), whose strength and beauty is created by a traditional Japanese technique known as tsuiki.
Components of each of these timepieces are handcrafted using a mallet and special chisel to hand carve a pattern known as arashi-tsuchime, which resembles the texture of a stone surface. AIP® (Arc Ion Plating), a state-of-the-art coating technology, is then used to give metal parts the characteristic coloring of artistic metalworking.
Function-wise, this model is equipped with an advanced timekeeping correction system and smartphone linking for the ultimate in reliability and practicality.
Traditional craftsmanship and advanced technology, two aspects that are very much parts of Japanese pride.
The result is a limited run of only 350 shock-resistant full-metal models that deliver Bluetooth® GPS radio-controlled solar-powered timekeeping.
*GPS hybrid radio-controlled solar combines CASIO's own solar power charging system, positioning using a Global Positioning System (GPS) and reception of time calibration signals around the world.
