We all want pretty things in our lives, and sometimes that means forking out a fair bit of cash. If you happen to have about $12,000 (yes you read that right) lying around, you might be interested in the new G-SHOCK MRG-G1000RT, the rarest G-SHOCK in the world with only 100 pieces specially crafted at Casio’s renowned Yamagata Premium Production Line in Japan. The bezel sports the “Nie” design, a pattern that’s been commonly used on traditional Japanese swords, and is framed within a black case with gold accents. This “Nie” design was a distinguishing characteristic of these swords and represented the sheer detail and quality of Japanese craftsmanship. It also makes for a rich and polished finish when it catches the light. The watch is made using a recrystallized Ti641 alloy, a material that’s seven times hardier than pure Titanium, making it indestructible. It’s also laminated with the resilient “Japan Blue” Diamond-like carbon coating, which shines in different hues depending on the lighting and angles. Beneath the case is Casio’s proprietary GPS Wave Ceptor Technology, a combination of both GPS Positioning and Radio Wave Time-Calibration Signals that ensures precision no matter where you are in the world.
G-SHOCK Limited Edition MRG-G1000RT, $11,888. Interested parties can register their interest at the G-FACTORY Premium store at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.
