ABSOLUTE COMMITMENT TO EVOLUTION
The development of CASIO G-SHOCK began in 1981 with an engineer’s passion to create a watch that would not break against impact. The first G-SHOCK model was released in 1983 and it overturned the accepted notion of the time that wristwatches are inherently fragile and susceptible to shocks. Since then, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve with improved functions and performance. Based in Yamagata Japan, CASIO is dedicated in producing unparalleled watch technologies in its premium range, advocating an evolutionary accuracy and creating its own legacy of toughness, strength and precision.
Casio's pursuit of the tough watch’s final form has led to a shock-resistant structure with a full-metal case. Today, with a traditional Japanese artisan’s technique integrated into its construction, MR-G has achieved the ultimate in both strength and beauty. The Japanese sword, a symbol of the samurai spirit, is highly prized as a work of art. A metal hammering technique used to embellish the sword’s hilt guard, a part that fulfils both practical and decorative purposes, is adopted for MR-G.
