Today, Casio G-SHOCK announces the latest edition to its luxury MR-G line up of men's watches. Created to be the epitome of luxury and toughness, the new MRGG2000RJ-2A boasts a functional Dura Soft Fluoro-Rubber band in an all-new, deep violet color, which provides both durability and comfort. The watch also features a custom back inscription of the Japanese characters for "Jyuryokumaru" (meaning "gravity"), which are hand engraved by renown sword smith, Teruhira Kamiyama.

The latest model showcases the MR-G line's signature features to give it a tough, yet sleek design that can elevate any winter look. It has an all-titanium case, back cover and clasp which have undergone a deep-hardening treatment to make it five times harder than regular titanium. It also has a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with an inner coating, which enhances its overall clarity and readability.

The MRGG2000RJ-2A bezel is created from Murasaki-gane metal and Cobarion; premium materials that make the bezel two or three times stronger than stainless steel. The deep violet Arc Ion Plating (AIP) also gives the metal a mirror-like, purple finish to complete its sleek style.

In addition, the new watch offers G-SHOCK's three-way time sync for accurate time keeping. This is made possible through Bluetooth® connectivity, GPS satellite signal reception and Multi-Band 6 technology, which are signature technical capabilities within G-SHOCK's premium models. The watch also features Tough Solar technology that provides self-charging capabilities.

The timepiece comes equipped with standard G-SHOCK technology features which include:

  • 200M water resistance and shock resistance
  • World time
  • Daily alarm
  • Countdown timer
  • Automatic Date Update
  • Airplane Mode
  • Super Illuminator LED light
  • Full auto calendar
  • Countdown timer
  • Day/date display

The MRGG2000RJ-2A will be available for $4,300, starting this February at selected high-end Jewelers and the G-SHOCK Soho store.
