Casio Computer Co., Ltd. announced today the release of a new addition to the MR-G Series, the flagship series of the G-SHOCK brand of shock-resistant watches. The MRG-G2000GA takes its inspiration from the traditional Japanese sword — known for bringing together the timeless strength and aesthetic sensibilities of Japan. It is hand-finished by a master craftsman in the world-renowned Gassan tradition of Japanese swordsmiths. A limited edition of just 300 of these watches will be released worldwide.
The MRG-G2000GA is inspired by the strength and refinement of Japanese swords, which have much in common with the toughness and functional sophistication of the MR-G Series. The watch incorporates design elements inspired by Japanese swords — from the yasuri-me (rasp marks) on the nakago (tang) to the crystal formation of the hamon (temper line) and the kissaki (blade tip).
