Meticulously Crafted
Casio G-Shock MRG-B2000 & MRG-B5000

The G-Shock MR-G – Casio’s top and most exclusive watch line – is the perfect showcase of Japanese craftsmanship through meticulously handled construction, materials, and finishes. The brand has just launched another excellent series with the MRG-B2000, while the MRG-B5000 series is a tribute to the brand’s roots.

Featuring a case and bracelet made of titanium and Sallaz polished by artisans, the MRG B2000 series is lightweight, rust and scratch-resistant, and expressive. The dial’s perimeter features a texture that’s cut to evoke the appearance of Japanese folding fans or screens, while the details of the index marks are inspired by the gentle curvature of a katana blade and handled by Yamagata Casio’s nano-processing technology. The limited MRG-B2000B-1A4 model is inspired by the “akazonae”, which is the crimson armour worn by ancient Japanese elite samurai units. The deep crimson hue on the watch is paired with black and gold — another colourway inspired by the samurai.

The MRG-B5000 series is another great demonstration of Casio’s full potential. It pays tribute to G-Shock’s very first watch, the DW-5000C and its full-metal exterior edition, the GMW-B5000. Taking the same shape as the original, the bezel now comprises 25 components, as this is the only way that every possible surface can be properly hand-polished. The top bezel is made of Cobarion, a cobalt-chrome alloy that is much harder than titanium and offers a brilliant shine similar to platinum, while the bracelet, the rest of the case, back cover and buttons are made of two titanium alloys.

Both series are equipped with functions such as 200-metre water resistance, world time, a smartphone link, and more. From now until June, the two new series plus signature MR-G models are being exhibited at the Oriental Watch Company’s Central flagship store.
