After celebrating the 20th anniversary of its MR-G model last year, G-SHOCK has unveiled a new model of its signature MR-G model made in collaboration with renowned artist Michael Lau. The watch’s exterior is crafted of a high-quality metal and is finished with the traditional Japanese Kasumi-Tsuchime technique, a style of craftsmanship that has been passed down from generation to generation for the past 1,200 years. The metal finish is complemented by trims of blue around the watch’s face, which is a shout out to the Japanese crafting and is applied with a blue DLC coating. The watch’s entire face is protected by a sapphire crystal plane coated with a non-reflective film. The new model of the MR-G is just as beautiful on the inside as it is outside, with a built-in Bluetooth-equipped GPS Hybrid Wave Receptor that allows for accurate time keeping anywhere in the world.

Only 500 pieces of the Kasumi-Tsuchime model of the G-SHOCK MR-G will be available worldwide and will sell for $60,000 HKD (about $7,700 USD).
