CASIO G-SHOCK MR-G “AKAZONAE” MRG-G1000B-1A4JR MADE IN JAPAN JDM
GPS Hybrid Radio-controlled Solar-powered*.
From the G-SHOCK MR-G flagship lineup, comes a new Akazonae theme model.
Akazonae was a special military unit during Japan's Warring States Period (Sengoku Jidai), whose armor and weapons were a distinctively uniform red color, which is said to have allowed commanders of elite troops to flaunt the valor of their soldiers.
The MRG-G1000B-1A4 features all of the toughness that has long been associated with the MR-G name, decorated with distinctive red coloring for the engraved lettering of the bezel, for city codes, and for various different components of the face.
Combining Akazonae red with G-SHOCK black creates a look of strength and power that spans the ages.
*GPS hybrid radio-controlled solar combines CASIO's own solar power charging system, positioning using the Global Positioning System (GPS), and reception of time calibration signals around the world.
The symbol of toughness and traditional Japanese beauty
Akazonae -Deep crimison color-
Akazonae was a military unit whose armor and weapons were a uniform red color. Its name has lived on through the ages because it was often used to allow elite troops known for their valor under exceptional commanders to stand out on the battlefield.
The strength and toughness represented by the Akazonae image for centuries has been incorporated into this model by using traditional Japanese crimson for the watch face, MR-G logo, second hand, dials, city codes,and other elements.This deep red evokes the aesthetic sense of Japan and expresses the intrepid toughness embodied in the color.
