The Trailblazing MR-G Hana-Basara

Unparalleled strength and beauty befitting the pinnacle of the G-SHOCK brand.


The ultimate in metal form, created with leading-edge technology and time-honoured artisanship. This trailblazing, one-of-a-kind MR-G is designed based on the concept of Hana-Basara, a Basara commander spirit. Basara was a term of respect used for samurai commanders who shattered conventions with a rebellious style that combined strength and a bold, lavish aesthetic.

Ultra-hard COBARION and DAT55G alloys developed in Japan are employed for the bezel and bands. It is cut and polished by a skilled artisan to apply techniques rarely used in metalwork, achieving mirror-surface facet cuts in metal. This watch exudes a distinctive aesthetic sensibility and worldview that embraces two of Japan’s proudest heritages: cutting-edge technology and traditional craftsmanship.


Facet-cut Bezel

The bezel employed a facet-cutting technique commonly used
in gemstone arts. Cutting/polishing artisan KOMATSU Kazuhito
applied crisp polishes to the many facets with their varying
angles to achieve a brilliant, gleaming finish. Working with an
ultra-hard alloy that is very tricky to process, kept production
limited to just a few pieces per day — an intricate process that
elevates this metal design to the realm of an artform.

Face Design Inspired by
Hana-Basara Armour

The dial design incorporates a Kusari Katabira (chain mail)
inspired woven pattern and mirror-finished components with
a folding fan pattern. The index features a curved form
achieved through nano processing evoking the curvature of a
Japanese sword. Adopting the Hana-Basara armour blend of
green, red, gold and black hues.

Dark Green Diamond-Like Carbon

The traditional Japanese hue kurogane-iro (literally “iron
colour”) is reproduced on the bezel and band with our newly
developed dark green DLC finish. The colour evokes the
distinguished presence of the iron-clad helmet and armour
Basara samurai commanders wore.

Super-hard Alloys Developed in Japan

The bezel is made of COBARION®, a cobalt-chrome alloy boasting a hardness about four times that of pure titanium and said to have a more brilliant gleam than platinum. The case and band employ DAT55G, a titanium alloy with a hardness about three times that of pure titanium that offers excellent processability. With these super-hard alloys developed in Japan, we achieved an exterior design that delivers both strength with beauty.
