Distinctive "Akazonae" red captures the essence of strength and power. GPS Hybrid Radio-controlled Solar-powered*.
From the G-SHOCK MR-G flagship lineup, comes a new Akazonae theme model. Akazonae was a special military unit during Japan's Warring States Period (Sengoku Jidai), whose armor and weapons were a disctinctively uniform red colour, which is said to have allowed commanders of elite troops to flaunt the valor of their soldiers. The MRGG1000B-1A4 features all of the toughness that has long been associated with the MR-G name, decorated with distinctive red colouring for the engraved lettering of the bezel for city codes, and for various different components of the face. Combining Akazonae red with G-SHOCK black creates a look of strength and power that spans the ages.
*GPS hybrid radio-controlled solar combines CASIO's own solar power charging system, positioning using the Global Positioning System (GPS), and reception of time calibration signals around the world.
THE SYMBOL OF TOUGHNESS AND TRADITIONAL JAPANESE BEAUTY
Akazonae - Deep crimison colour-
Akazonae was a military unit whose armor and weapons were a uniform red colour. Its name has lived on through the ages because it was often used to allow elite troops known for their valor under exceptional commanders to stand out on the battlefield. The strength and toughness represented by the Akazonae image for centuries has been incorporated into this model by using traditional Japanese crimson for the watch face, MR-G logo, second hand, dials, city codes and other elements. This deep red evokes the aethetic sense of Japan and expresses the intrepid toughness embodied in the colour.
Bold gold ion plating
The front screws, crown, side buttons and part of the buckle have a gold ion plated finish. These gold accents to the basic black colouring add a look of heft and splendour, which is similar to that of the hefty and gorgeous armor worn by Warring States Period military commanders.
Dual-layer hardening for a long-lasting shiny titanium finish
Each component is finished using a deep-layer hardening process that enhances the hardness of the titanium material. This is followed by diamond like coating (DLC) surface finishing, which enables outstanding resistance to wear.
Scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with non-reflective coating
Highly scratch-resistant sapphire glass, which has a high transparency index, is coated with an anti-glare agent on both sides to help keep information easy to read.
Sallaz polishing for the ultimate in exquisite beauty
Sallaz polishing is said to be the absolute best polishing technique available today. It produces an exquisite shine that is free of distortion.
