Since its debut back in 1983, the G-Shock has quickly established itself as the ‘the toughest watch of all time’, and remained at the top by constantly evolving. Now, the well-liked model gets a cosmetic makeover with premium materials and fine Japanese workmanship. Enter Casio’s G-Shock MR-G Hammer Tone ($6,200).
Designed using the traditional Tsu-i-ki technique (creating relief patterns through hammering), this badass timepiece features a hardened, DLC-coated Titanium case & bracelet, with highlights in dark silver Oboro-gin and a copper alloy containing 3-5% gold, called Akagene. The watch owns the same toughness and precision that made it famous, and comes equipped with anti-shock, 200 m water resistance, latitude indicator, airplane mode, world time (40 time zones, 27 cities+UTC), Super Illuminator LED, alarm, full auto calendar, 1/20th sec. stopwatch, countdown timer (24Hr), day/date display and a case size of 54.7mm. Limited to only 300 pieces worldwide, the G-Shock MR-G Hammer Tone will be available starting July 2016, at select high-end retailers.
