Traditional Japanese samurai armor-inspired sports wristwatch

US$ 3,774

The word "akazonae" carries a special weight in samurai warfare history: this was the name for battle units dressed in all red armor like those of Obu Toramasa, a general for the medieval warlord Takeda Shingen. This shade of red (crimson, to be exact) has been used in the design of the G-Shock MRG-B2000B-1A4JR Akazonae Watch. This timepiece boasts a uniquely Japanese character, thanks to the folding-fan-like patterns on its face, the gold touches on the crown, screws, and hour marks, and the curvature in the index marks that brings to mind samurai swords, and all set on a black background!

The sense of power that the Casio's G-Shock Akazonae Watch emits through its looks is also backed by a breathtaking array of features: from the solid titanium of its case, bezel, and band to its sapphire crystal, the radio-controlled, Multiband 6 time adjustment, and compatibility with the MR-G Connected app through Bluetooth. Shock-, magnetic- and water-resistant, it withstands any environment, no matter how tough. It gets its power from the sun and it keeps perfect time in 27 time zones. All this and much, much more!
