This isn’t your old childhood G-SHOCK: tough exterior, nice water resistance, sweet battery life. Oh, the memories. With the new G-SHOCK MR-G GPS Hybrid Gold Hammer Tone, Casio gives your favorite watch of yore the royal treatment. And since there can be only one king, there’s just a single watch available in every country. Let’s have a closer look then, shall we.

Handcrafted in Yamagata, Japan, the G-SHOCK MR-G pays homage to traditional Japanese design elements by employing tsu-i-ki, a traditional metalworking technique. This is Bihou Asano, a third-generation master metal craftsman from Kyoto, who’s dedicated himself to restoring and reproducing Japan’s National Treasure metal artworks. Asano collaborated with Casio on this 20th anniversary timepiece out of an appreciation for the watchmaker’s vision. Impressive.

Asano employed his well-honed hammering technique to carefully shape the bezel and band of every single one of the only 300 timepieces available worldwide.


A shock and water-resistant titanium case, non-reflective sapphire crystal, Tough Solar Movement, GPS. Hard to resist.

If you’re in the market for a premium timepiece (it clocks in at P349,995) the gold G-SHOCK MR-G looks like a lock. See what we did there?

You may request a viewing or even purchase the limited edition watch at G-Factory Premium, Greenbelt 5.
