The next evolution of G-Shock is here! Arizona Fine Time is proud to share a quick look at the new MRG-G1000RT, an introduction for Baselworld 2015 that is going to change the way you look at G-Shock forever. Casio has gone to a new extreme in toughness, launching a new titanium alloy known as Titanium 64. This new product is not only strong, but stronger then the previous titanium used. Ti64 is a type of alloy made from 90% titanium, 6% aluminum, and 4% vanadium and is nearly 7 times harder then pure titanium. The new MRG-G1000RT’s bezel undergoes a treatment at high temperatures giving it a crystallized presence, but also gives it a distinctive glow or reflection in dark situations. A similar process is used for katana blades, which helped inspire the new MR-G.
Last year marked a memorable day in the record books when Casio introduced one of their most expensive timepieces to the US market, bringing the MT-G Metal Twisted G-Shock to this country. This year, a new technology was brought forth with their GPW1000 series, featuring not only radio control, but also GPS timing information to make for the ultimate in accuracy. Today, we introduce a merger of these two revolutionary pieces introduced in a variation of G-Shock typically only sold in Japan as their most premium G. The MRG-G1000, known as the MR-G GPS Hybrid Wave Ceptor has officially been introduced to market, with an unbelievable metal construction, the durability G-Shock is renowned for, and the impressive technology of GPS and Multi Band 6, all powered by light.
