Casio G-SHOCK reveals the limited edition, luxury MR-G GPS Hybrid Gold Hammer Tone timepiece, handcrafted in Yamagata, Japan. Only 300 of the special MRGG1000HG-9A timepieces will be available worldwide, with 10 available in the U.S., and each is handcrafted using the traditional Japanese Tsu-i-ki technique.
This is the second collaboration with third generation master metal craftsman Bihou Asano, who individually hammered each bezel and band of 300 watches using the Tsu-i-ki technique: a traditional craft method that creates unique relief patterns through hammering. The Tsu-i-ki method has been used to create parts of the Japanese Railway and Bullet Train.
Each timepiece, which boasts a titanium case and bracelet band, and non-reflective sapphire crystal, also includes GPS satellite synchronization system for accuracy and comes equipped with Multiband 6 and Tough Solar capabilities.
