This new limited-edition model is being introduced to mark the 25th anniversary (2021) of the top-of-the-line G-SHOCK MR-G. Its concept theme is HANA-BASARA, a term whose root is BASARA, which comes from the Sanskrit word for diamond.
The case, band, and back are coated with a traditional Japanese iron-colored (kurogane) DLC (diamond-like carbon) coating, which gives this model its main coloring. The iron color is a dark bluegreen color produced when armor and swords were heated during their forging. Brown ion plating (IP) is used for the case, while red molding around the face and green around the inset dials produce a calm color combination that is similar to the elegance and beauty of ancient Japanese armor. A plate on the edge of the case at 10 o'clock is engraved with 25TH LIMITED to commemorate the 25th anniversary of MR-G (2021).
The COBARION® bezel, which is about four times harder than pure titanium, is faceted by master gem cutter Kazuhito Komatsu to create a typical bezel shape. Facet cutting combines several small surfaces to maximize the transparency of a gemstone. Machining metal with this method requires a very high level of skill, and Kazuhito Komatsu was able to hand grind each bezel at a rate of only a few pieces per day.
The case and band are made of DAT55G titanium alloy, which is three times harder than pure titanium. This combines with the COBARION® bezel to provide outstanding hardness for the entire watch.
