A combination of traditional aesthetic design and innovative material engineering.
The latest in kurozonae metalworking.
Shock-resistant full-metal design, with Bluetooth® GPS radio-controlled solar-powered timekeeping
From the G-SHOCK MR-G flagship lineup, comes a new kurozonae theme model.
Since ancient times, kurozonae has given military weapons a distinctive uniform black color that has been a symbol of strength and power, and the distinctive black coloring on the exterior finish and the face of this model reflects this image. The black metal is finished in a way that makes its dark and light facets resemble the fine gradations seen in black ink paintings.
The bezel is made of COBARION®, a Japan-developed cobalt base alloy that is twice as hard as stainless steel and has a shine that is equal to that of platinum. High-level cutting and polishing technology is used to carefully shape and polish each individual bezel to a level of never-before-possible hardness and elegance.
This new model is designed to receive time calibration signals, GPS satellite signals, and Bluetooth®, all of which can be used to correct the current time setting for outstanding accuracy.
Timeless traditional Japanese beauty plush the latest in advanced innovative technology combine to create the next generation in fashionable, full-metal timekeeping.
*GPS radio-controlled solar combines CASIO's own solar power charging system, positioning using a Global Positioning System (GPS), and reception of time calibration signals around the world.
Tradition and innovation, toughness and elegance.
Clad in metal with a finish that is an ancient symbol of power.
Kurozonae was a name given to special military units whose weapons were a uniform black color. Legendary warrior and leader Date Masamune used this name to distinguish military groups for their bravery. Often evoking images of darkness and death, black has been used since ancient times to create overwhelming psychological images in the mind of the viewer.
CONNECTED ENGINE 3-WAY
Time calibration signals, GPS satellite signals, and Bluetooth® can all be used to correct the current time setting.
Links with a smartphone for more accurate timekeeping and access to a host of mobile link functions.
CASIO’s original solar-charging system converts not only sunlight but also light from fluorescent lamps and other sources into power.
