The Casio G-Shock is the most heavily armored watch in the world, and for most of its career, irrespective of its incarnations, the armor it has worn has looked distinctively modern, whether in the original palette of blacks and dark greys, or in the neon-bright colors of more fashion-forward G-Shocks. No matter the color scheme, however, the G-Shock has remained the G-Shock – capable of surviving impacts that would destroy virtually any other watch you can think of, and often with additional protection added depending on the model (the Mudmaster series, for instance, has gasketing specially designed to resist the intrusion of, well, mud).

In the last few years, Casio’s MR-G Watches series of high-end G-Shocks has come to be populated with timepieces that reflect more traditional Japanese crafts, and elements of Japanese culture – probably the best known example of this approach are the “Hammer Tone” MR-G watches, which are decorated using the tsuiki hammering technique, as applied by master craftsman Bihou Asano. At Baselworld 2017, Casio debuted the latest entry, the MRG-G1000B-1A4 Akazonae, which incorporates red accents meant to reflect the shade of red used in traditional Japanese samurai armor – in particular, the armor worn by senior samurai of the Takeda clan, during the Sengoku (“Warring States” period, c. 1467 – c. 1603).
