This customary Japanese finish, which combines hexagonal shapes into groups of three, dates back to ancient times and was often seen on the armor of Bishamonten – a group of warriors that symbolized ultimate strength in battle.
Including premium features such as a diamond-like carbon coating to increase abrasion resistance, as well as titanium that's undergone a deep layer hardening process to render it up to five times tougher than normal, the MRG-G2000R combines Japanese aesthetics with modern technology for a luxurious, tough watch.
Other top-of-the-line finishes include a scratch-resistant sapphire inner crystal coating, G-SHOCK's legendary Multi-Band 6 technology and tough solar technology, as well as Bluetooth connectivity through the G-SHOCK Connected app.
In another first for the brand, the Dura Soft Fluoro-Rubber Band and titanium case are connected via "L/R-Δ Loc" (pronounced "L-R Delta Lock"), which Casio co-developed in partnership with NejiLaw – a company known for "screws that never come loose." Based on an L/R bolt* with two nuts that lock together and spin in opposite directions, L/R-Δ Loc was created specifically for watches as a revolutionary mechanism that prevents screws from coming loose due to vibration and other forces.
