Casio to Release the First MR-G to Feature the Iconic Design of the Original G-SHOCK
Multiple Components for Meticulous Finishes with Master Polishing Craftsmanship
Singapore, 16 March 2022 — G-SHOCK announced today the release of a new addition to the MR-G series, the flagship line of the G-SHOCK brand of shock-resistant watches. The new MRG-B5000 is the first MR-G timepiece to feature the iconic design of the very first G-SHOCK.
With a nod to the design of the DW-5000C, the first-ever G-SHOCK released in 1983, the MRG-B5000 now brings a brilliant shine and a dignified distinction to the shock-resistant watch by employing cutting-edge metals finished with master polishing craftsmanship.
To apply sophisticated polished finishes to even the tiniest corners of the complex bezel form made of 25 different components, Casio developed the new Multi-Guard Structure. The new structure incorporates shock-absorbent parts in the multi-component bezel to ensure excellent shock resistance, while also allowing polished finishes to be applied to each component, down to the most challenging spots, for a stunningly beautiful finish. The band employs a unique structure as well. The separate pins are pressed in round holes in each metal link which allows detailed polishing for an equally beautiful finish on the band.
The quality of the master polishing craftsmanship shows on the cutting-edge, made-in-Japan materials used for the MRG-B5000. COBARION, which has a hardness about four times that of pure titanium and a brilliant gleam comparable to platinum, is used for the top surface of the bezel. The band is made of DAT55G, a titanium alloy that is about three times harder than pure titanium and highly workable, making it scratch-resistant and ensuring a long-lasting, beautiful mirror finish.
Masterfully crafted polishing and meticulously selected materials come together to create a timepiece worthy of that original design, but with the trademark quality of the MR-G line, which stands at the pinnacle of the diverse family of G-SHOCK watches.
Regarding the function, the MRG-B5000 comes with a radio-controlled calibration and smartphone link connectivity. The watch connects with the dedicated CASIO WATCHES smartphone app to automatically adjust to the correct time. It also comes equipped with a solar charging system and a high-brightness LED light for added convenience.
As with other MR-G watches, the MRG-B5000 is crafted on the high-end Premium Production Line at Yamagata Casio, the “mother factory” of Casio watch production.
MRG-B5000 will be available in G-SHOCK stores at Marina Bay Sands, ION and VIVO City at the end of March or in April.
