[G-SHOCK MRG] MRG-B5000BA-1 — Blue Ink Calligraphy Image

The Ultimate Guide to All G-SHOCKs — composed by Experts

The “MR-G” series, which is the highest grade line of G-SHOCK. MRG-B5000 is a model created as MR-G by using the first model DW-5000C of G-SHOCK with carefully selected metal materials and careful finishing. By composing the bezel with a complicated shape with 25 parts, it became possible to polish each part in detail, and it was possible to finish it with a higher texture. In addition, we used a new impact-resistant multi-guard structure with increased strength by installing a cushioning material such as stainless steel leaf springs and silicone between the bezel parts. Based on the image of “blue ink” used in ink paintings and calligraphy, the band pins and bezel parts are coated with blue IP based on black coated with diamond-like carbon. The face has a blue vapor deposition that matches the brick pattern that is the identity of the first model DW-5000C. In terms of functionality, it is also practical because it supports cooperation with smartphones using the radio wave reception function and Bluetooth® communication function.
