COMING SOON
Shougeki-Maru

Reaching new heights. A powerful presence and dignified aesthetic joined with traditional Japanese craftsmanship.

Taking inspiration from a KABUTO (helmet) specially created for the MR-G series, the MRG-B2000SH evokes the noble spirit and aesthetic sensibility of a samurai commander. Representing the helmet’s maedate (crest), each bezel features the image of a dragon hand carved by a metalsmith highly skilled in the technique of chasing. The case and band, cast with specially-produced metal dies, simulate the rugged look of rusted steel, with finishes of brown and blue aged IP for a time-worn appearance. Casio has teamed up with specialists in traditional arts to unite proud Japanese craftsmanship and advanced technology.

*This model is currently scheduled for release in late 2020*

Design & Technology

Metal Bezel Carved with Ascending Dragon

Metal Bezel Carved with Ascending Dragon

The Shougeki-Maru’s bezel evokes a helmet’s crest. Highly skilled in the technique of chasing, metalsmith Masao Kobayashi has carved the image of a mythical dragon on each. With his hand carving, no two watches are exactly alike.

Forged Bezel and Band with Rusted Steel Texture

Forged Bezel and Band with Rusted Steel Texture

The Shougeki-Maru's bezel and band impart its textural feel to it. Forged using a sand die by Masanao Kikuchi, they reproduce the rugged look of rusted steel. A highly-skilled technique using a sand die, with brushes and misting tools, is required to bring out the unique textured finish in the metal's surface.

Blue-Aged IP

Blue-Aged IP

Titanium treated with a deep-hardening process is finished with layers of both brown and blue IP. Removal of the blue IP from the convex surface produces the watch’s unique look, with its rusted steel texture and prominent ascending-dragon image. The coloration of the watch also creates the look of the navy blue ”KON ITO ODOSHI” * used in Japanese helmets and armor.
