Casio's new MR-G G-SHOCK with copper tone reflects the beauty of traditional Japanese metal craftsmanship

DUBAI - Casio Computer Co., Ltd., announced the latest addition to their flagship MR-G Series in the G-SHOCK line of shock-resistant watches. The new G-SHOCK MRG-G1000DC features “Akagane” (copper colour) accents realized with ion plating, evoking a metal that has been used in traditional Japanese metalwork, much prized in Japan over the centuries. The new model reflects the beauty of traditional Japanese craftsmanship.

The MR-G series offers the ultimate in tough watch design. It combines a sense of quality evoked by finely finished metallic elements with the distinctively solid feel of G-SHOCK, which conveys its shock-resistant performance. MR-G has gained popularity among adults who want to enjoy a G-SHOCK watch for many years to come.

'The latest MR-G is both a tribute to ancient Japanese tradition as well as a representation of the most modern technological innovations that power the Casio brand,' said Tsuneo Nagai, Managing Director of Casio Middle East. 'The Akagane MR-G should be well received by our Middle East clientele, who are highly appreciative of fine craftsmanship and the latest in time-keeping technology.'

The new G-SHOCK MRG-G1000DC inherits the features of the model it is based on, the MRG-G1000—an advanced timekeeping system that receives both Global Positioning System (GPS) and radio wave time-calibration signals and offers Dual Dial World Time, which simultaneously displays the time in two different cities. Moreover, the new model offers a look that reflects the beauty of traditional Japanese craftsmanship.

A beautiful warm copper hue found in traditional Japanese metalwork has been used to accent the numerals, inset dials, and crown, as well as the guards that reinforce the shock-resistance of the side buttons. The copper-colored accents realized with ion plating deliver a Japanese artistic style within a tough design.

The case and band have received titanium-carbide processing, and Sallaz polishing, the ultimate in polishing technology, has been used to ensure that the metallic surfaces shine beautifully for many years. As part of a pursuit of toughness, the bezel is made from Ti64*, which is even harder than puretitanium, and DLC coating has been applied to the surface of the four bezel screws and to the side buttons in the 2 and 4 o'clock positions. The result is a special model that will be appreciated has timeless appeal.
