(Sponsored Post) This new G-Shock MR-G sits atop the G-SHOCK collection, boasting Bluetooth GPS radio-controlled solar-powered timekeeping and a rare hammer-finished bezel inspired by ancient Japanese black dragon folklore.
G-Shock’s artisans utilize traditional tsuiki metal hammering to replicate the effect, which has been used in Japan for centuries in the production of armor, copperware, and other metal tools. The painstakingly hammered patterns of the metal reflect the personality of the artisan who created them, and identify the handmade nature of each item.
This traditional Japanese aesthetic sense is applied to a shock-resistant, full-metal body that houses a 3-Way Connected Engine for accurate timekeeping anywhere in the world. This watch, like many G-Shock MRG timepieces, includes Bluetooth Connectivity and also possesses GPS and Atomic Solar Hybrid technology to accurately measure time and location from anywhere on earth, Tough Solar capabilities for increased battery function, as well as non-reflective sapphire crystal.
Additionally, by utilizing the new G-SHOCK MR-G Connected App for smart phones, users can quickly set world time as well as monitor the watch's key functions. The result is absolute toughness and absolute accuracy that is distinctively MR-G. The MRGG2000HB-1A retails for $5,000 at G-SHOCK retailers, including Macy's, gshock.com and the G-SHOCK Soho Store.
