Casio G-Shock has released a new limited edition for MR-G called Hana-Basara, commemorating the MR-G 25th anniversary.
Basara signifies as aesthetic sense of favoring a chic, ornate look liberated from the status quo. Back when Japan was still divided up into competing domains, Samurai commanders who had unshakeable will and challenged conventional thinking were called Basara commanders. This name recognized not only their physical prowess, but also their keen aesthetic sensibilities. They valued “Hana”, brilliance in their armour and helmet and sought innovative techniques and creative designs to express their individuality.
This model has features in color, finish and material. The bezel and band are applied with a traditional Japanese Kurogane-iro (literally iron-color) DLC coating, which gives this model its main colouring. The Kurogane is a dark blue green color produced when armour and swords were heated during their forging. Brown ion plating (IP) is used for the case as well, while red around the face and green around the inset dials produce a calm color combination inspired by the elegance and beauty of ancient Japanese armour.
In terms of finish and material, the bezel produced by Cobarion which is 4 time harder than pure titanium is finished by Kazuhito Komatsu, who is a cutting and polishing artisan famous for Hana Shinjyu (faceted pearls). Facet cutting combines several small surfaces to maximize the transparency of a gemstone. Cutting metal with this method requires a very high level of skill. Maximum production per day was limited to just a few pieces. Besides, 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.
The watch will be available from 23 July, 2021.
