MR-G, the watch that overturned conventional thinking and opened up new frontiers of toughness, announces a magnificent new model, embellished with lustrous red gold accents, that will captivate wearers’ hearts like no other.
Constructed of titanium 6-4, an alloy harder than pure titanium, and hardened further with titanium-carbide processing, the bezel exhibits both dignity and power.
The case’s platinum coloring, embodying the strength and beauty of metal, is set off by lustrous red gold accents to engender the quality feel of armor and copper craftsmanship. The result is original styling reminiscent of traditional functional beauty.
Close attention has been paid to every detail, as seen in the application of black DLC (diamond-like carbon) processing to the button at 2 o’clock and the button and ring at 4 o’clock. Accurate timekeeping is assured, moreover, by a GPS HYBRID radio-controlled solar-powered system that corrects the time anywhere on Earth. In pursuit of toughness, and boasting “Made in Japan” quality, a new MR-G greets the world.
GPS HYBRID radio-controlled, solar-powered timekeeping
Signals are received from GPS satellites and used to determine the correct time in the current location in any time zone worldwide. When GPS satellite communication is impossible due to an indoor location or cloudy skies, for example, terrestrial standard time radio waves are received preferentially. This hybrid system, which chooses between two types of radio waves depending on the environment and operates on solar power, assures stable reception of timekeeping information at all times.
MULTIBAND 6 allows reception of time calibration signals from one of six transmitters around the globe : Germany, The United Kingdom, The United States, China, and Japan (two transmitters).
Clad Guard Structure*1
The crown/buttons and shield parts are integrated for improved shock resistance. By eliminating various parts, this made it possible to downsize the case while installing GPS satellite signal reception and other advanced functions.
αGEL®*2 is used as a lining inside the crown’s head cover, moreover, to moderate shocks to the crown itself.

Dual Dial World Time
This function provides prompt access to the times in 40 time zones worldwide and displays the times in two different locations simultaneously on the main dial and an inset dial. An automatic Daylight Saving Time function further reduces the bother of manual time setting.
An electronic crown switch and the use of multiple motors combine to enable conflict-free simultaneous operation of multiple functions, and smooth switching between functions.
A CASIO-original thin analog movement made possible by hybrid mounting protects against damage and enables auto home position correction that helps keep you on time all the time.
Tough Solar ensures stable operation even when using power-hungry functions.
