Casio G-Shock MRG-B1000 Watches

This model is a real find for professional divers and just diving enthusiasts. Water protection meets international standards ISO 200, in which samples are tested for stable operation at a depth of 200 meters under water. The case is distinguished by its atypical asymmetric shape. The strap is made of two materials – polyurethane and carbon fiber [for even greater strength]. A new generation triple sensor is installed in the watch – the depth gauge, which measures the depth of being under water, takes the place of the barometer. The measuring range of -80m is ready to satisfy almost any divers needs. After the dive, you can display information about the water temperature, duration of the dive and depth. If the ascent is too fast, the watch will tell you about the need to slow down for the safety of the body. Other functions of the sensor are a thermometer that measures the temperature of the water, and a digital compass. The solar battery is responsible for the power, and the time is synchronized by radio waves. Powerful backlighting will make the dial visible even in the darkest places under water.

Official Marketing Focus from Casio

Introducing an elegantly beautiful new titanium model for the mid-size series of the G-SHOCK MR-G flagship lineup. Everything possible has been done to reflect the metal crafting aesthetics of armor, swords, and other Japanese arms, which have been symbols of power in Japan since time immemorial.
The case and band are made of titanium that has been deep surface hardened and then given a titanium carbide finish, which creates a beautiful lustrous silver color. The bezel is then giving a diamond-like carbon (DLC) coating that gives it a bold and intrepid black color. All of this is offset by the vivid red accents on the face that evoke images of red braided armor that adds an imposing majesty to the metal and creates a sense of power.
Functions include Bluetooth®, time correction using time calibration signals, and smartphone linking capabilities.
