The development of G-SHOCK began in 1981 with an engineer’s passion to create a rugged watch that would not break even if dropped. Two years and over 200 prototypes later, the first G-SHOCK model, the DW-5000C, featuring an all-new shock-resistant construction, was released in 1983. It overturned the accepted notion of the time that wristwatches are inherently fragile and susceptible to shocks, and established a new product category: the “tough watch.” Since then, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve with improved functions and performance.

The MRG-G1000B-1A4 is equipped with a hybrid time acquisition system that receives both GPS and radio wave time-calibration signals, conveying G-SHOCK strength in a design theme of crimson accents that evoke the red lacquered armor that once signified elite samurai.
