The tang of the sword is inside the hilt and “yasuri-me” rasp marks are applied to prevent it from slipping out. The pattern on the centre band of the MRG-G2000GA is modelled after the file mark pattern used by the 800-year-old Gassan tradition of swordsmiths and is hand-applied to each link by Sadanobu Gassan. The second link in the centre band is also inscribed with the kanji character 鍛, from the Gassan motto tanto hitosuji (“a singular dedication to forging”).
The watch case is made of recrystallized titanium that gives it a sparkling appearance that evokes the crystal formation of the temper line on the blade of a sword. An Arc Ion Plating is applied with a deep purple colour that is traditionally associated with nobility in Japan. The bezel is made from Cobarion which is twice as hard as stainless steel and has a bevelled shape that is inspired by the blade tip of a sword.
Along with its beautiful appearance inspired by the traditional Japanese swords of the Gasssan family, the MRG-G2000GA-1A is one of the most technologically advanced G-Shock watches featuring Tough Solar power and 3-Way Time Sync with Multi-Band 6, GPS timekeeping, and Bluetooth mobile link.
