G-SHOCK expands Pinnacle MR-G Series with new models in the classic square shape

Casio has introduced the newest additions to its pinnacle G-SHOCK MR-G line-up with the launch of the MRGB5000 series.

With the new models, the MRGB5000D-1 and MRGB5000B-1, the trademark square shape of the original G-SHOCK DW5000 is elevated to provide shock resistance with the addition of premium materials and the artisan craftmanship and quality that the MR-G series represents.

The enhanced bezel and case have been constructed of 25 individual components with Sallaz polishing applied to each part prior to assembly, giving the watches a stunning, elegant finish.

The new MRGB5000 models pay homage to the original G-SHOCK, DW5000C, by retaining the iconic brick pattern and red outline of the original G-SHOCK dial design. The MRGB5000B-1 is crafted with a DLC coating on the case and band to deliver enhanced wear resistance and a sleek, all-black look that pays tribute to G-SHOCK’s signature brand color. Gold-colored ion plating on the buttons and screw-lock case back evoke the refinement of the MR-G series as well. The silver-colored MRGB5000D-1 is made with a titanium carbide finish to enhance the beauty of its bezel and band.

The bezels of the new timepieces are made from premium materials, such as COBARION, a cobalt-chrome alloy that is four times harder than titanium and is part of a 25-piece Multi-Guard Structure, specifically developed for the MRGB5000, to protect the module with superior shock-absorption by incorporating flat springs and resin buffers between the components of the watch. Additionally, Ti64 is used for the case and the band employs DAT55G, a titanium alloy about three times harder than pure titanium to further enhance the absolute toughness of the models.

In addition, the MRGB5000D-1 and MRGB5000B-1 boast premium G-SHOCK technical features including Bluetooth® functionality that allows the watch to be connected to a smartphone via the CASIO Watches app, MULTIBAND 6 Atomic Timekeeping, Tough Solar Charging, Super LED illumination, and more.

As part of the release, G-SHOCK has unveiled an exclusive collection page taking consumers through the features, which can be viewed HERE.

The new timepieces also come equipped with G-SHOCK technology including:

  • Shock Resistance
  • 200M Water Resistance
  • Sapphire Crystal
  • LED (Super LED)
  • 1 Sec. Timer (24Hr)
  • 5 Daily Alarms

The MRGB5000D-1 will retail for $3,500 and the MRGB5000B-1 will retail for $4,000. Both models will be available for purchase this March at select G-SHOCK retailers, the G-SHOCK Soho Store and gshock.com.
