G-Shocks occupy a space in my mind where you get a rugged, affordable watch that could last through years, maybe decades of abuse. Releasing a $4,300 USD version of a G-Shock breaks that affordability, and I’m not even mad. It’s hand-engraved, made of an all-titanium case, and is fantastic.
I love titanium. The MRGG2000RJ-2A has an all titanium case, case back, and clasp, all of which have undergone a hardening treatment to make them more durable and scratch resistant. The crystal is a sapphire with AR coating for increased legibility. The bezel is a Murasaki-gane metal and Cobarion, both premium materials that make the bezel two or three times stronger than stainless steel. It is ion-plated with a purple/violet finish that looks stunning.
The G-Shock MRGG2000RJ-2A uses three methods to set the time automatically: GPS, multi-band 6 Atomic technology, and Bluetooth connectivity to a mobile phone app. It also recharges using Casio’s ToughSolar tech.
Standard G-Shock features are
- 200M water resistance and shock resistance
- World time
- Daily alarm
- Countdown timer
- Automatic Date Update
- Airplane Mode
- Super Illuminator LED light
- Full auto calendar
- Countdown timer
- Day/date display
G-Shock exists because the founder of Casio, Mr. Ibe, wanted to create “a watch that never breaks”. For $4,300 USD, you could have one at select jewelers, beginning in February. g-shock.com
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
