CASIO G-SHOCK UNVEILS A BASEL SPECIAL LIMITED EDITION MR-G TIMEPIECE (PRNewsFoto/Casio America, Inc.)

The Casio MRGG1000RT-1A is the most expensive G-Shock ever released for sale. Made with the titanium 64 alloy. Casio claims that the composition mix of 90% titanium, 6% aluminum and 4% vanadium makes the Ti64, seven times harder than pure titanium. Not to mention the “Japan Blue” DLC (diamond-like carbon) treatment on the case, bracelet, gold front screw and crown, and anti-glare sapphire glass. Finishing up with a recrystallized bezel that is inspired by the “nie pattern” a conjunction of small distinct crystalline particles that appear like twinkling stars, often used in the craftsmanship of Japanese swords.

Some of the innovative features on this 56mm Casio is the: Multi Band 6 system, that receives atomic-clock-based time calibration radio signals broadcast around the world. It also has a built-in GPS receiver that correlates location with internally stored map data to instantly set the time with a push of the button. These two features combined allow for accurate timekeeping at all times, anywhere in the world.
