Casio G-SHOCK‘s latest premium MR-G release takes the form of the original DW-5000C G-SHOCK from 1983.

Using premium materials combined with a high level of finishing, the MRG-B5000 sees the iconic case shape with the incorporation of Ti64 titanium construction, scratch-resistant DLC coating, a DAT55G titanium bracelet (three times stronger than regular titanium), a Cobarion bezel (a cobalt-chromium alloy that is four times harder than titanium yet shines like platinum), AR-coated sapphire glass, and advanced Sallaz polishing — the bezel assembly sees 25 parts alone.

Weighing 114 grams, the MRG-B5000 packs the same level of functionality as its GMW siblings with Tough Solar power, Multi-Band 6 automatic radio time calibration, 200 meters of water resistance, 39 times zones, a stopwatch, alarm, calendar, a Super Illuminator LED backlight, Phone Finder function, multi-language settings, and Bluetooth smartphone link capabilities.

Set for a March 12 release in Japan, look for these watches to release with a premium price tag of roughly $4,000 USD for the DLC version and $3,500 USD for the titanium carbide version.
