G-SHOCK announced three new MRG-B2000

G-SHOCK recently announced three new MRG-B2000 watches. These new watches are inspired by the aesthetics of ancient Japan that can be seen by the detailing of the watches that is carefully crafted in terms of the structure, function, material and finish.

On the face of the new MRG-B2000 watch, the outer periphery is cut to the shape that resembles a Japanese fan or folding screen, creating a simple yet gorgeous texture. The nano-processing technology of Yamagata CASIO is harnessed to create the beautiful edges and curved surfaces of the hour markers in a form that recreates the curve of a fine sword.

There is a mirror finishing on the case and part of the band with Sallaz polishing, and the surface has a dual-layer hardened coating. Also, the watches have a glare-resistant coated sapphire crystal. There are three colorways: Black, silver, and red.

MRG-B2000B-1A4DR was designed with the theme of “Akazonae”: a special military unit during Japan’s Warring States Period called Sengoku Jidai. The armour and weapons were a distinctively uniform red colour. The commanders of elite troops have been allowed to flaunt the valour of their soldiers. This model is generously decorated with red, a colour that has been the symbol of strength since ancient times, on the bezel and dial. Combining Akazonae red with G-SHOCK black creates a look of strength and power that spans the ages.
