CASIO G-SHOCK UNVEILS SPECIAL LIMITED EDITION CONNECTED MR-G AT BASELWORLD 2019
Latest Model Boasts an All-New Mirror-Like, Titanium Finish


DOVER, NEW JERSEY, March 20, 2019 - Today, Casio G-SHOCK unveils the latest addition to its luxury MR-G line up of men’s watches, with the release of the MRGG2000GA-1A, which is currently on display at Baselworld.

Each limited-edition timepiece is hand engraved using the classic Japanese technique, “yasuri-me," an intricate process that entails each of the band’s center links with a rasp finish similar to that done on the tang of a sword. The band is complemented by a deep violet color and recrystallized Arc Ion Plating (AIP) on the case, and the bezel boasts an upscale, mirror-like finish.

The special edition MR-G watch will be on display at Baselworld from March 21-26 at the Casio booth, located in Hall 1.1 B71 & 67.

The MRGG200GA-1A features a Cobarion® bezel with a flawless mirror-finish, and a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with non-reflective coating, elevating its overall clarity and brilliance. The watch’s face also boasts a watered pattern and a unique bladed edge to symbolize a Japanese sword, while the band is hand engraved by historic Japanese artisan Sadanobu Gassan, whose heritage dates back to the 12th century.

The new model also comes equipped with G-SHOCK’s top-of-the-line technical capabilities including Multi-Band 6 technology for three-way time sync to allows for accurate time keeping, as well as Tough Solar technology that provides self-charging capabilities. The watch also has Bluetooth technology to connect with the MR-G Connected smartphone app, which allows for self-adjusting time changes as one travels between time zones in addition to tracking solar charge, checking signal reception frequency and more.

    About G-SHOCK
    CASIO’s shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch is synonymous with toughness, born from the developer Mr. Ibe’s dream of ‘creating a watch that never breaks’. Over 200 handmade samples were created and tested to destruction until finally in 1983 the first, now iconic G-SHOCK hit the streets of Japan and began to establish itself as ‘the toughest watch of all time’. Each watch encompasses the 7 elements; electric shock resistance, gravity resistance, low temperature resistance, vibration resistance, water resistance, shock resistance and toughness. The watch is packed with Casio innovations and technologies to prevent it from suffering direct shock; this includes internal components protected with urethane and suspended timekeeping modules inside the watch structure. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve, continuing to support on Mr. Ibe’s mantra “never, never give up." www.gshock.com
