Casio G-SHOCK MR-G Series by G-SHOCK for use by 360 Magazine

CASIO’S Kachi-Iro Watch Collection

By: Armon Hayes

Now more than ever, consumer priorities have shifted to become increasingly more selective when it comes to luxury goods. After all, the majority of wise spending decisions are made on the basis of durability, functionality and of course, value. If a dose of retail therapy is required, or you’re deciding on the ideal gift for Mother’s or Father’s Day–whatever the occasion may be­–G-Shock’s 2021 Spring/Summer latest release encompasses the philosophy of combining distinctive CMF design with leading-edge technology; redefining timepieces and the watch industry.

Casio announces the latest additions to its luxury G-SHOCK MR-G Series, with the introduction of the Kachi-Iro Collection. The brand-new MRGB2000B-1A and MRGB2000R-1A take inspiration from kachi-iro, the color of winning and victory in Japanese culture. Kachi-iro is a dark navy-blue color that was preferred by the native samurai warriors, often used for armor and helmets. Both high-end models incorporate ancient Japanese strength and aesthetics that pair well with G-SHOCK’s absolute toughness and top technical features, such as tough movement and standard technology.

The MRGB2000B-1A boasts a full metal band, derived from a traditional Japanese scale pattern used on the surface of the dial. The outer face is cut to a shape that resembles a Japanese fan, creating a stunning impression. The gentle concave surfaces of the hour markers resemble the curve of a samurai sword, while the inner surface of the bezel, inset dials, and logo all incorporate the bold kachi-iro color.

Each model is equipped with a deep layered hardening titanium case, the unique bezel of the MRGB2000R-1A is made of recrystallized titanium. Heat treating titanium creates a distinctive crystal pattern on its surface, which resembles the nie on Japanese sword blades. This model offers a durable fluorine rubber band with a Bishamon tortoise shell finish—a symbol of strength in Japan since ancient times. The only choice here is preference of wristband, dependent on one’s personal style.

My personal favorite is the G-STEEL collection. An owner of their previous edition, moderately priced at $425 and a notable collector’s item, the new GSTB100GC-1A, features an updated two-toned black colorway with refined gold accents. My favorite two finishes combine both style and functionality. The sleek, polyurethane black band and layered guard structure provide durability to enhance the model’s toughness–ensuring that it can withstand any activity.

The G-STEEL collection is fashionable, stylish, and equipped with premium design features–such as a highly scratch resistant black IP (ion plated) bezel with gold IP buttons, and buckle to match the timepiece’s elevated gold accents. As for functions, the watch is equipped with G-SHOCK’s most up-to-date features, including solar-powered charging capabilities, a super LED light and Neo-Brite luminous hands for maximum visibility. The timepiece also boasts Bluetooth technology to pair with smart phones via the G-SHOCK Connected App, offering connectivity, automatic time adjustment, and more!

As of late, this line up of the refined timepieces embodies the process of color material & finish, known as CMF. Unique colors and application techniques with the release of three new additions to its popular G-MS series of women’s watches, the MSGS600G-1, MSGS600-2, and MSGS600G-7, each offer a sporty-yet-elegant look that’s ideal for the multi-dimensional woman on the go.

The luxury watch­­­­­­ comes with understated blue, black, and white resin bands–a staple accessory to elevate any look while providing functionality and a comfortable fit on a smaller wrist. The watch is equipped with standard G-SHOCK technology, including shock resistance, 100M water resistance, daily alarms (5), stopwatch, countdown timer, and full auto calendar to year 2099. It comes available in a rose gold IP bezel, retailing for $200, and stainless-steel bezel at $170.

Mr. Ibe’s dream of creating a watch that never breaks challenges the theory of time and waits for no one. Available now at select G-SHOCK retailers, the G-SHOCK Soho Store, and on G-SHOCK’s website.

The gold accents work in conjunction with an engraved gold IP case back that features inscriptions reading “100 1920-2020,” a tribute to New Era’s long and storied history.

2020 GREEN GOOD DESIGN

Sustainability award for the Rado True Thinline Leaf

Rarely have the award and the prize winner been better suited to each other: our emerald green Rado True Thinline Leaf was presented with the prestigious GREEN GOOD DESIGN Award by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design and the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies. Under the motto “Build a better world now”, the coveted award honours outstanding architecture and product designs that leave a lasting impression with their “green” concept.

The Green Good Design Award 2020 went to our True Thinline Leaf. Made from hightech ceramic, this timepiece features a green iridescent mother-of-pearl dial with a delicate leaf structure embossed on the underside. As a result of the creative partnership with Grandi Giardini Italiani, an organisation dedicated to preserving extraordinary Italian gardens, this line celebrates the interplay of design and nature.

The creation of each individual watch is just as unique as its dial. Years of research culminated in the True Thinline’s ground breaking monobloc ceramic case – a neverbefore-seen type of case construction featuring solid ceramic with no need for a stainless steel core. This not only gave the True Thinline its extreme lightness and super slim silhouette, but it also paved the way for new design possibilities.

This year’s edition of the GREEN GOOD DESIGN AWARD focused on the world’s most important new products, buildings, construction and planning projects, whose sustainable and environmentally friendly design is pioneering. We are therefore particularly pleased that our vision of a “natural” timepiece has been appreciated by such a prestigious organisation.

About Rado

Rado is known as the Master of Materials for the way it has revolutionised traditional watchmaking, leading the industry by introducing high-tech ceramic, ultra-light high-tech ceramic, colourful high-tech ceramic and Ceramos to its design-led collections. An award-winning designer with numerous prestigious international prizes to its name, and considered the most forward-thinking design player in the watch industry today, Rado has always been a pioneer and leader, setting the standard and raising the bar.

About GOOD DESIGN™

GOOD DESIGN™ is a prestigious, recognised, and longstanding design award program organised annually by The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design in cooperation with the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies. The trademarked awards were founded in Chicago in 1950 by renowned architects Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray Eames, and Edgar Kaufmann, Jr.

G-SHOCK – Full Metal Timepiece

G-SHOCK UNVEILS FULL METAL GMWB5000 WITH PREMIUM LASER-CUT GRID DESIGN

Latest Model Boasts a Futuristic and Innovative “Grid Tunnel” Pattern on All-Black Stainless-Steel Case

Casio G-SHOCK announces a new limited-edition timepiece to its Full Metal Series, the GMWB5000CS-1. The new timepiece is constructed with a stainless-steel case and band that features a brand-new, laser-carved grid design.

While inheriting the shape of the first G-SHOCK, the new timepiece boasts an evolved exterior with full metal construction and a Grid Tunnel pattern that connects the past with the future. After a black IP finish is applied to the metal, a grid pattern is engraved by laser, adding a modern touch to the classic design. The new GMWB5000CS-1 features a diamond-like carbon (DLC) finishing process and laser etching on the screw-lock back case and upholds its metal, shock-resistant exterior with a fine resin cushioning material that is inserted between the stainless-steel case and bezel, and then enclosed in a protective shell. The band connection sections also employ a three-pronged structure to distribute the impact from shocks, further enhancing the model’s state-of-the-art strength and design.

The new timepiece comes equipped with several of G-SHOCK’s most premium technical features, including Bluetooth Connectivity via the G-SHOCK Connected app, Multi-Band 6 Atomic Timekeeping for self-adjusting and accurate hour/date display virtually anywhere on the globe, and a specially developed button structure that guards the button shafts from the inside against lateral shocks. It also features Tough Solar Technology, rendering it capable of self-charging even with low sun exposure.

As part of the release, G-SHOCK has unveiled an exclusive landing page taking consumers through the features, which can be viewed HERE.

About G-SHOCK

CASIO’s shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch is synonymous with toughness, born from the developer Mr. Ibe’s dream of ‘creating a watch that never breaks’. Over 200 handmade samples were created and tested to destruction until finally in 1983 the first, now iconic G-SHOCK hit the streets of Japan and began to establish itself as ‘the toughest watch of all time’. Each watch encompasses the 7 elements; electric shock resistance, gravity resistance, low-temperature resistance, vibration resistance, water resistance, shock resistance, and toughness. The watch is packed with Casio innovations and technologies to prevent it from suffering direct shock; this includes internal components protected with urethane and suspended timekeeping modules inside the watch structure. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve, continuing to support on Mr. Ibe’s mantra “never, never give up.”

360 Magazine × G-Shock

By Bob Cal

Partnering with the Nassau Fire Department, G-Shock hosted an exclusive ‘Train Like a Firefighter’ event to unveil their latest product—the Mudmaster. 360 Magazine, along with a dozen other editors and photographers, attended this one-day class to gain first-hand experience with G-Shock’s high performance watch.

Arriving at G-Shock’s Soho location in Manhattan, the media personnel were transported to the Nassau County Fire Department in Long Island—and boy were they in for an adrenaline rush! Each attendee was gifted a G-Shock Mudmaster watch to test during this day of high intensity classes instructed by certified firefighting teachers. The students for the day were clad head to toe in heavy, authentic fire fighting gear, doing everything from traversing a pitch black building, busting out of a trapped room and sliding down the rope of a second floor window– all while wearing their G-Shock Mudmaster watch. The media guests were both physically and mentally tested.

Living up to its name, the mud resistant Mudmaster watch was like a diamond through every firefighting drill. Never did it scratch or catch dirt through contact with debris. Its light weight maximizes comfort and ease without comprising durability and longevity. The product’s other features include a digital compass, LED lights and water resistance. It is an all around visually elegant performance accessory.
