Casio G-Shock MR-G ‘Gassan’ Watch

G-Shock has impressed the watch industry several times over at this point with a series of jaw-dropping Japanese-influenced MR-G timepieces — each one more impressive than the last. But they may have finally outdone themselves with their Baselworld-exclusive ‘Gassan’ watch — named after the Japanese artisan responsible for its creation, Sadanobu Gassan.

Crafted using techniques that date back over 800 years, including a yasuri-me hand-finishing technique taken from Japanese sword-making used on the bracelet’s center links, this is a gorgeous time-keeping tribute to samurai culture. But it also features plenty of modern techniques, as well — like Arc Ion Plating (a physical vapor deposition process) used to create the watch’s eye-catching purple “recrystallized” titanium case. Like the rest of the watches in this series, this one also features a Cobarion bezel, a sapphire crystal, and all the normal sensors, features, and connectivity we’ve come to expect from G-Shock — like solar charging, Bluetooth compatibility, and more. The Casio G-Shock MR-G G2000GA will sell for $7,400 starting in July.
