The trailblazing MR-G Hana-Basara. Unparalleled strength and beauty befitting the pinnacle of the G-Shock brand.
The ultimate in metal form, created with leading-edge technology and time-honoured artisanship. This trailblazing, one-of-a-kind MR-G is designed based on the concept of Hana-Basara, a Basara commander spirit. Basara was a term of respect used for samurai commanders who shattered conventions with a rebellious style that combined strength and a bold, lavish aesthetic.
Ultra-hard COBARION and DAT55G alloys developed in Japan are employed for the bezel and bands. It is cut and polished by a skilled artisan to apply techniques rarely used in metalwork, achieving mirror-surface facet cuts in metal. This watch exudes a distinctive aesthetic sensibility and worldview that embraces two of Japan’s proudest heritages: cutting-edge technology and traditional craftsmanship.

Design & Technology
The bezel employed a facet-cutting technique commonly used in gemstone arts. Cutting/polishing artisan KOMATSU Kazuhito applied crisp polishes to the many facets with their varying angles to achieve a brilliant, gleaming finish. Working with an ultra-hard alloy that is very tricky to process, kept production limited to just a few pieces per day — an intricate process that elevates this metal design to the realm of an artform.
Dark Green Diamond-like Carbon
The traditional Japanese hue kurogane-iro (literally “iron colour”) is reproduced on the bezel and band with our newly developed dark green DLC finish. A name derived from the deep shade of green that appears on the surface of iron heated to high temperatures, the colour evokes the distinguished presence of the iron-clad helmet and armour Basara samurai commanders wore.
Face Design Inspired By Hana-Basara Amour
The dial design incorporates a Kusari Katabira (chain mail) inspired woven pattern and mirror-finished components with a folding fan pattern. The index features a curved form achieved through nano processing to evoke the curvature of a Japanese sword. Adopting the Hana-Basara armour blend of green, red, gold and black hues, the watch face presents a creative design look.
Plate Commemorating MR-G 25th Anniversary
Brown AIP® (arc ion plating) is applied to the DAT55G case. A plate engraved with “25th LIMITED” adorns the case side to mark the 25th anniversary of the MR-G line.

Super-hard Alloys Developed in Japan
The bezel is made of COBARION®, a cobalt-chrome alloy boasting a hardness about four times that of pure titanium and said to have a more brilliant gleam than platinum. The case and band employ DAT55G, a titanium alloy with a hardness about three times that of pure titanium that offers excellent processability. With these super-hard alloys developed in Japan, we achieved an exterior design that delivers both strength with beauty.
