Passion for craftsmanship, fusing tradition and innovation — A G-SHOCK 40th anniversary model inspired by the Japanese sword
Announcing a new collaboration with Sadanobu Gassan, one of the premiere swordsmiths in Japan, to commemorate the G-SHOCK 40th anniversary. This limited-edition watch is an addition to the MR-G series, the flagship G-SHOCK line. It presents a combination of strength and beauty with a range of features that incorporate the techniques and aesthetic of Japanese sword-making into the design.
The bezel’s recrystallized hybrid titanium expresses the Gassan family’s signature ayasugi-hada pattern. A decorative rasp-mark pattern and hand-carved inscription adorn the band. The recrystallized titanium case reproduces the look of the temper patterns of a Japanese sword. A blue grey AIP® treatment evokes the blue-tinged ferrous hue long thought to exemplify a finely crafted sword. Introducing an MR-G that embodies a deep passion for craftsmanship, fusing tradition and innovation.
