Casio G-SHOCK MRG-G1000 Watch Displays Accurate Time Anywhere in the World
Casio announced today the latest addition to the flagship MR-G Series in the G-SHOCK family of shock-resistant watches- G-SHOCK MRG-G1000. The new Casio G-SHOCK MRG-G1000 features a key technology in the company’s analog watch strategy—a new hybrid solar-powered timekeeping system that receives both Global Positioning System (GPS) signals and radio wave time-calibration signals.
This advanced timekeeping system receives both GPS signals and radio wave time-calibration signals transmitted from six stations worldwide, enabling it to maintain accurate time anywhere in the world. In areas where radio waves are available, the watch prioritizes receipt of radio wave signals. In areas without radio wave coverage, the system adjusts the time based on the location information obtained using GPS signals.
The new G-SHOCK MRG-G1000 watch has been finely crafted down to the very smallest detail. With just a push of a button, the watch corrects the time if needed in as little as seven seconds using either GPS signals or radio wave time-calibration signals, keeping accurate time anywhere in the world.
An outer case made of lightweight and rust-resistant titanium is finished with superb Sallaz polishing, a superlative metal-polishing technique that creates a solid, yet refined look. The G-SHOCK MRG-G1000 watch has been designed to protect the crown and buttons without requiring extra protective parts, achieving high performance module in a modest size.
The G-SHOCK MRG-G1000’s face features sapphire glass with an anti-reflective coating for scratch resistance and high visibility, while the bezel is dual surface-coated to withstand scratches. Large side buttons carved from metal and multidimensional index marks realized through proprietary fine metal crafting techniques yield a refined watch made with the very finest attention to detail. Advanced performance in a tough yet refined watch design—this is what users can count on in the MR-G Series.
