Known for creating eye-catching, durable timepieces, the G-Shock line has become a bit of a style staple over the years. Today the legendary watch returns, this time around with a luxurious approach as we get our first look at The Casio G-Shock MR-G Gold Hammer Tone. This unique new design is handcrafted in Japan, using the traditional Tsu-i-ki method of individually hammering each bezel/band to create a unique relief pattern.
The timepiece also serves as Casio’s second collaboration with third generation master metal craftsman Bihou Asano and also provides another celebration of the 20th anniversary of the MR-G. This outstanding design comes with only 300 units created and features that clean, individually hammered bezel that makes for a unique and uncanny appeal. The design also includes a titanium case and bracelet band, non-reflective sapphire crystal, GPS satellite synchronization system for accuracy and comes equipped with Multiband 6 and Tough Solar capabilities.
