    TOKYO, January 29, 2016 — Casio Computer Co., Ltd., announced today the latest addition to the flagship MR-G Series in the G-SHOCK line of shock-resistant watches. The new G-SHOCK MRG-G1000DC features “Akagane” (copper color) 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 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 pure titanium, 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.


    * Ti64 is a type of alloy made from 90% titanium, 6% aluminum, and 4% vanadium

    Interesting design, this is the first MRG-G1000 to have a silver bezel and I think it is very good looking. I wonder if this is the new MRG that you alluded to starscream, or if there's another new one coming

    from what i've heard there should be more.. This year is the 20th anniversary for the MRG so Casio is planning to celebrate that. I have not seen anything yet though.. But they will probably reveal them at Basel.

    Thanks, good point on 20 years of MRG, can't wait to see what they'll bring out this year. I'd love to see a digital MRG again
