Casio’s G-SHOCK MRGB2100B-1A: Where Ancient Craft Meets Modern Mastery.

Casio has unveiled the latest jewel in its luxury G-SHOCK MR-G collection: the stunning MRGB2100B-1A. This state-of-the-art timepiece draws inspiration from the ancient Japanese woodworking technique of "kigumi," a masterful building method from the Heian period (794-1185) that ingeniously eliminated the need for metal or nails. With 27 meticulously crafted components, the MRGB2100B-1A exemplifies the harmonious blend of tradition and innovation.


An Ode to Timeless Craftsmanship


The spirit of "kigumi" is vividly embodied in the MRGB2100B-1A. Each piece is painstakingly polished before assembly, ensuring a flawless, distortion-free finish, even in the most intricate recessed areas. This dedication to perfection is evident in the band, which features intricate dimples crafted from separate pieces, and the dial’s base surface, which boasts a corrugated facade with geometric openings designed for optimal solar power generation.


Polished to Perfection


Sallaz polishing graces the MRGB2100B-1A with mirrored finishes, enhancing its visual appeal and reflecting Casio's unwavering commitment to craftsmanship. The top bezel, made from COBARION, and the band links, crafted from DAT55G, are both stronger than pure titanium, offering unparalleled durability and resilience without sacrificing style.


Advanced Features


Beyond its striking appearance, the MRGB2100B-1A is a marvel of modern engineering. The index mark at 12 o’clock features a two-part structure, adding a touch of sophistication. An LED light illuminates the date display and day indicator, ensuring readability in any lighting condition.


The watch also boasts 200M water resistance, making it suitable for a variety of environments, from casual settings to more demanding conditions.


Seamless Connectivity


One of the standout features of the MRGB2100B-1A is its ability to link with a smartphone, providing seamless connectivity that enhances the user experience.


This integration allows for precise timekeeping and access to a range of functions that make this timepiece not only a work of art but also a practical tool for modern living.


A Luxurious Investment


Set to be available for purchase on June 14, the G-SHOCK MRGB2100B-1A will be priced at ~$4,800 USD. It will be available at select jewelers and on G-SHOCK’s webstore, offering enthusiasts and collectors the opportunity to own a piece that embodies the pinnacle of luxury and innovation.
