High-performance materials for a new level of toughness.
Shock-resistant full-metal body with a Dura Soft Fluoro-Rubber band
GPS Hybrid Radio-controlled Solar-powered Timepiece with Bluetooth®*
MR-G, the lineup that is constantly expanding the limits of absolute strength and accuracy, is proud to become the wirst timepiece in the G-SHOCK lineup to come with a Dura Soft Fluoro-Rubber band. This highly functional material has a soft, gentle texture and elegant feel, and also provides high durability. The surface of the band has a traditional Japanese bishamon kikko pattern, making this new band as aesthetically pleasing as it is functional.
A titanium case is combined with other materials for a new level of innovative functional elegance.
Function-wise, this watch includes a time adjustment system capable of obtaining data via Bluetooth®, GPS signals, and time signals and other powerful features and functions made possible by original technology.
Material, structure, function. Everything approached with an uncompromising spirit.
A new level of strength and new materials for a new model that is the top of the G-SHOCK line.
*GPS hybrid radio-controlled solar combines CASIO's own solar power charging system, positioning using a Global Positioning System (GPS), and reception of time calibration signals around the world.
Dura Soft Fluoro-Rubber Band
This is the first time for a G-SHOCK to be equipped with a band made of soft, yet durable fluro-rubber. Perfectly supple, pleasant to the touch, while at the same time more durable. This new material creates a band that is both strong and comfortable, which is only fitting for a top-of-the-line model.
* Band length adjustment requires special tools. Request band length adjustment from an original retailer or an Authorized CASIO Service Center.
Bishamon kikko is a pattern that combines hexagonal shapes into groups of three. Since ancient times, this pattern has been used on the clothing and armor worn by Bishamonten, one of the gods of war who is the protector of Buddhism, hence the name bishamon kikko. The band of the MRG-G2000R is finished with the ancient bishamon kikko pattern, which is an apt symbol of strength for this top-of-the-line model.
Titanium material is forged and machined to create the three-fold buckle. The ends of the band are embedded in the buckle for a simple design and comfortable fit.
Titanium parts are first subjected to a deep-layer hardening process, which makes their surfaces four to five times harder than plain titanium. Next, the case and back cover are coated with titanium carbide (TIC) to improve wear resistance. The bezel and buckle are coated with diamond-like carbon (DLC) for an exquisitely beautiful finish.
