We are proud to present the highly anticipated, new addition to our premium MR-G Series. MRG-2000GA-1ADR.
The MRG-G2000GA takes its inspiration from the traditional Japanese sword — known for bringing together the timeless strength and aesthetic sensibilities of Japan. It is hand-finished by a master craftsman in the world-renowned Gassan tradition of Japanese swordsmiths.
A limited production of only 300 watches will be released worldwide.
The finish of the MRG-G2000GA reflects a specialist attention to the smallest details. The case is made from recrystallised titanium, the sparkling appearance of which resembles the crystal formation of the temper line on the blade of Japanese swords. An Arc Ion Plating (AIP®)*1 treatment is then applied in the Koki-murasaki (deep purple) that is traditionally associated with nobility in Japan. The bezel is made from COBARIAN®*2 and bevelled in a manner inspired by the blade tip of a Japanese sword. The watch incorporates design elements inspired by Japanese swords — from the yasuri-me (rasp marks) on the nakago (tang) to the crystal formation of the hamon (temper line) and the kissaki (blade tip). The centre band of the MRG-G2000GA is finished in a pattern modelled after the pattern employed in the renowned Gassan tradition of swordsmiths. The pattern is applied by hand to each link by Sadanobu Gassan, who is in line to succeed the 800-year-old Gassan tradition. The second link in the band is also inscribed with the kanji character鍛, from the saying tanto hitosuji (“a singular dedication to forging”) that is espoused by the Gassan tradition.
The MRG-G2000GA features time adjustment using radio wave time-calibration signals, GPS satellite signals, and Bluetooth® to ensure accurate time keeping, reflecting time zone changes around the world and daylight savings time.
Born into the famous Gassan family of swordsmiths in 1979, Sadanobu Gassan was exposed to the world of swordmaking from a young age. In 1998, he began training with his father, Sadatoshi Gassan. In 2006, he was recognized as a swordsmith by the Japanese Agency for Cultural Affairs.
Since that time, he has continued to challenge himself in new areas of craftsmanship that carry forth the traditions of the past, winning numerous prizes and accolades in various competitions. As the sixth in the Gassan line from Osaka, he carries the honour of the next generation of Japanese swords.
Sadanobu Gassan currently serves as a director for the All Japan Swordsmith Association.
