Featuring a smaller and slimmer case design, the MRGB1000B-1A boasts a resilient yet lightweight titanium case and band with a diamond-like carbon coating, as well as a non-reflective sapphire crystal for added luxury and strength. The G-SHOCK MR-G Connected App is available for smartphone users to easily set world time and monitor the watch's key functions, such as self-adjustment, solar charging, and access a 5-year digital warranty.
The new model also comes equipped with standard G-SHOCK technology of shock resistance and 200M water resistance, as well as Super Illuminator LED, World Time display (39 cities + UTC), daily alarm, stopwatch, countdown timer, date/date display and a full auto calendar - all in a 46.2mm case.
CASIO's shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch is synonymous with toughness, born from the developer Mr. Ibe's dream of 'creating a watch that never breaks'. Over 200 handmade samples were created and tested to destruction until finally in 1983 the first, now iconic G-SHOCK hit the streets of Japan and began to establish itself as 'the toughest watch of all time'. Each watch encompasses the 7 elements; electric shock resistance, gravity resistance, low temperature resistance, vibration resistance, water resistance, shock resistance and toughness. The watch is packed with Casio innovations and technologies to prevent it from suffering direct shock; this includes internal components protected with urethane and suspended timekeeping modules inside the watch structure. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve, continuing to support on Mr. Ibe's mantra "never, never give up." www.gshock.com
