Bluetooth®-EQUIPPED GPS HYBRID WAVE CEPTOR
+ JAPANESE CRAFTSMANSHIP

Japan's proud advanced technologies and traditional technical skills merge in MR-G.
Its ability to receive standard time radio waves, GPS satellite signals and Bluetooth® transmissions enables it to acquire accurate time information in any location on Earth under virtually any conditions.
Metal exterior surfaces are finished with a traditional kasumi-tsuchime hammering technique.
And Japan Blue indigo, a representative color in Japanese traditional craftsmanship, is applied with blue DLC coating.
The true staying power of traditional beauty is embodied in this 500-piece numbered limited edition model of MR-G, the flagship series in the G-SHOCK line.

STORY BEHIND THE QUALITY

Integration of traditional Japanese craftsmanship
with advanced Casio technologies

KASUMI-TSUCHIME

–HAMMER TONE–

KASUMITSUCHIME traditional metal-hammering craftsmanship

The external surface of the MRG-G2000HT is patterned by bold but delicate strokes of craftsmen's hands applying traditional kasumi-tsuchime metal hammering.
This forging technique, in which metal is pounded with a hammer, has long been used to form robust metal products such as armor and copperware.
The technique has been passed down to modern times by skilled masters of the craft through a history of over 1,200 years.
Bihou Asano is among these distinguished masters.
Born into a Kyoto family steeped in this tradition,he continues to create products using the traditional techniques, while also undertaking restoration and reproduction of national treasures of the metalworking arts.
His activities reflect a commitment to taking up new product manufacturing challenges while continuing his family tradition. It was because this conviction resonated with MR-G that the present collaboration was initiated.

Traditional beauty through the
application of KASUMI-TSUCHIME

Kasumi-tsuchime metal hammering applied to the bezel and center band pieces creates a unique patterning effect known as kasumi-tsuchime.
When applied to forge-cast titanium, the pattern changes depending on the angle of the hammer’s edge and the force with which it is struck. Products are completed one by one with great care by craftsmen drawing on their experience and skill in a labor-intensive process that leaves no piece with the same appearance as another.

After hammering, the watch parts undergo deep layer-hardening processing.
A DLC coating is then applied to reinforce the surface’s abrasion resistance, moreover, and to preserve its beauty far into the future.

“Japan Blue” Indigo

The bezel, case back and metal plate are embellished with deep blue COLORING. This shade of traditional Japanese indigo we call “Japan Blue” was developed specially for MR-G.

The blue COLORING is applied using a DLC coating process. Blue is considered more difficult to reproduce with DLC coating than more commonly applied color tones such as black.
A highly developed film formation technology is also required to apply COLORING uniformly to surfaces of materials with complex irregularities.
This is realized for the MRG-G2000HT by precisely adjusting the hardness, thickness, laminated structure and other characteristics of the DLC film. This time-consuming process, which can be conducted for only a limited production quantity, reaches completion with the attainment of a deep, tasteful color.

FEATURES

KASUMI-TSUCHIME
–Hammer tone–

The bezel and center band links are finished with traditional Japanese kasumi-tsuchime hammering.
A special hammer is used to individualize each indentation.

Blue DLC

A blue DLC (diamond-like carbon) coating is applied to the bezel, case back and metal plate at 10 o'clock.
The difficult-to-reproduce indigo color known as “Japan Blue” is achieved through a laborious process.

Shock-resistant structure

This model with its titanium case boasts a tough structure that resists dropping shocks despite its all-metal exterior.

Multi-layer dial

The powerful face design conveys an impression of depth.
Its luminous 3D index is accompanied by multilateral-cut hour and minute hands.

Super Illuminator
(High-brightness LED light)

The dial is illuminated by a high-brightness LED that ensures visibility in the dark.

Magnetic resistant
(ISO 764 standard-compliant)

A magnetic-resistant plate installed in the module prevents stoppage or shifting of the hands due to magnetic forces in everyday use without interfering with radio wave reception.

Clad Guard Structure

The crown, buttons and guard parts are integrated to reinforce shock resistance.
αGEL®* is packed into the crown’s head cover, moreover, to mitigate shocks to the crown itself.

αGEL® (Alpha Gel) is a registered trademark of Taica Corporation.

Dual disk displays

The date and function displays are operated by two independently driven disks.
The city code and function are displayed in a small window at 3 o'clock.

Double-hardening processing

Deep-hardening processing is applied to form a hardened surface layer on the titanium material, after which the surface is given a DLC coating to reinforce its abrasion resistance.

Sapphire crystal

A high-transparency, abrasion-resistant sapphire crystal with a non-reflective coating is installed to ensure clear visibility.
