G-Shock MRG-G1000HG-9A Gold Hammer Tone 20th Anniv.

It hasn’t been officially announced by Casio yet (other than the Youtube video released above), but several Japanese retailers are reporting that the G-Shock MRG-G1000HG-9AJR Gold Hammer Tone 20th Anniversary Edition is being released on December 9, 2016. This ultra-luxurious limited edition G-Shock shares the same type of handcrafted tsuiki-patterned bezel and center band links as the MRG-G1000HT-1A, another limited MR-G 20th anniversary model released during Baselworld 2016. Like the MRG-G1000HT, the tsuiki patterns of the MRG-G1000HG were applied by master artisan Bihou Asano.

The MRG-G1000HG-9A features a striking gold IP, indigo-colored markers with blue DLC, and a black IP for the front screws, buttons, and electronic crown. A special side plate commemorates the 20th Anniversary of the MR-G series and the serial number is engraved on the case back. This model is limited to 300 units and has a list price of ¥756,000 JPY (including tax). As limited edition MR-G watches are usually very difficult to obtain, the best option may be contacting a Japanese retailer like Oomiya or Tomiya.

Update: Casio made an official announcement for the MRG-G1000HG.

Update 2: Casio USA announced that there will be ten MRGG1000HG-9A watches available in the U.S. with a list price of $6,200 and availability in January 2017.

The MRG-G1000 series is the top of the G-Shock line and features a titanium exterior, shock resistance, 200-meter water resistance, sapphire crystal, Tough solar power system, GPS Hybrid Wave Ceptor timekeeping, world time, stopwatch, countdown timer, daily alarm, low battery alert, date display, neobrite luminous hands, and LED light with afterglow.

We are a Los Angeles retailer called Altivo Timepieces who receives very limited G-Shock products, such as many MR-G models. A small family business and one of the best kept secrets in LA!
