G-Shock MRG-G1000B-1A MRG Series GPS Black
In 1983 Kikuo Ibe, Casio’s research and development engineer set out to design a watch that could survive a 10m drop after his first ever watch, a gift from his parents on graduation day, broke from a fall. G-Shocks are world famous for quality and extreme toughness. Worn by military through to action sports athletes, every man should have at least one G-Shock in his stylin’ artillery.
Just how accurate can a watch really be? What constitutes a truly practical world time system? The answers to these questions are apparent in the GPS HYBRID Wave Ceptor, with separate GPS and radio wave reception capable of adjusting to a specific location and environment. This solution, as the name implies, means that no matter where on Earth you may be your watch will always show the correct time. The GPS algorithm, capable of gathering and analyzing precise positioning data, gives access to evermore accurate information, such as whether or not Daylight Savings Time is in effect. Along with the practical feature of having the times in two different cities displayed simultaneously, the MR-G, as the highest of the line, provides the perfect example of unparalleled precision.
The titanium used in the MR-G case and band is exceptionally scratch resistant. The titanium is heated in a mixture of oxygen and nitrogen gas and used to create a 20~30μm hard layer on the material’s outer surface. Unlike a film, it makes the actual material itself harder than pure titanium. A coating with a hard amorphous carbon film composed of carbon and hydrogen which then undergoes a DLC treatment, all serve to make the case, band, and buckle, as well as each of the links with in the band, wear resistant.
