Introducing the latest addition to
the MRG-B5000 series, the flagship line of the G-SHOCK brand of
shock-resistant watches. The new color MRG-B5000BA Ao-zumi is designed
in the image of the blue ink used in India ink paintings and
With a nod to the design of the
DW-5000C, the first-ever G-SHOCK released in 1983, the MRG-B5000 brings a
brilliant shine and a dignified distinction to the shock-resistant
watch by employing cutting-edge metals finished with master polishing
To apply sophisticated polished
finishes to even the tiniest corners of the complex bezel form made of
25 different components, Casio developed the new Multi-Guard Structure.
The new structure incorporates shock-absorbent parts in the
multi-component bezel to ensure excellent shock resistance, while also
allowing polished finishes to be applied to each component, down to the
most challenging spots, for a stunningly beautiful finish. The band
employs a unique structure as well. The separate pins are pressed in
round holes in each metal link which allows detailed polishing for an
equally beautiful finish on the band.
The quality of the master polishing
craftsmanship shows on the cutting-edge, made-in-Japan materials used
for the MRG-B5000. COBARION, which has a hardness about four times that
of pure titanium and a brilliant gleam comparable to platinum, is used
for the top surface of the bezel. The band is made of DAT55G, a titanium
alloy that is about three times harder than pure titanium and highly
workable, making it scratch-resistant and ensuring a long-lasting,
beautiful mirror finish.
MRG-B5000BA is applied with a diamond
like carbon black base coloring accented by band pins and bezel parts
with a blue ion-plated (IP) finish. The dial uses blue and gold vapor
deposition coloring along with the brick pattern border, which is an
identifying characteristic of the original DW-5000C model.
Regarding the function, the
MRG-B5000 comes with a radio-controlled calibration and smartphone link
connectivity. The watch connects with the dedicated CASIO WATCHES
smartphone app to automatically adjust to the correct time. It also
comes equipped with a solar charging system and a high-brightness LED
light for added convenience.
There are three base models: the
standard square case DW-5600, the octagon bezel GA-2100, and the large
size case GA-110. There are two colorways: black and transparent color.
Regarding the functions, all five watches are equipped with lights for
digital displays and faces that give a clear view in dark places.
GA-2100SR, GA-2100SRS, and GA-110SR watches can be set a world time from
48 cities. All five watches are shock resistance and water (200-meter)
resistance. And these watches include a stopwatch and countdown timer
