Casio announced an all-new top of the line G-Shock MR-G series that is making its debut as the limited edition MRG-G2000HT-1A. This model is a Baselworld 2017 special edition limited to 500 units worldwide with a serial number engraved on the case back. The MRG-G2000HT features the same 3-Way Time Sync feature as the recently announced G-Shock GPW-2000 Gravitymaster series. 3-Way Time Sync incorporates automatic timekeeping through Multi-Band 6 radio waves, GPS signals, or Bluetooth connectivity to a smartphone, allowing the watch to adjust the time on its own anywhere in the world.
The MRG-G2000HT-1A features a tsuiki metal-hammered bezel and bands handcrafted by Bihou Asano, a master Japanese artisan who also crafted the bezel and bands on the “Hammer Tone” MRG-G1000HT-1A and the gold MRG-G1000HG-9A MR-G 20th Anniversary Editions. The bezel, bands, and case back have a “Japan blue” indigo DLC coating. The band and buttons have a silver-gray finish that is commonly used in Japan for traditional sword accessories and ornaments. Like the previous MRG-G1000 series, the titanium case and band undergo a deep-hardening process that makes it five times harder than standard titanium. The MRG-G2000HT also features advanced Sallaz polishing and a sapphire crystal with a non-reflective coating.
Other features include Tough Solar power, shock resistance, 200-meter water resistance, ISO 764-compliant magnetic resistance, world time, 1/1 second stopwatch (24 minutes), countdown timer (24 hours), 1 daily alarm, battery level indicator, and LED light with afterglow.
Casio America also announced the MRGG2000HT-1A for a U.S. release in September 2017, with a list price of $7,400 USD.
