The 'MRG-G1000' G-SHOCK watch has been a popular model for decades, which isn't much of a surprise considering its high functionality and luxurious masculine look.

As HYPEBEAST reports, the timepiece take "cues from Japanese craftsmanship," and is even hand-finished by the talented Bihou Asano. Utilizing gold ion plating, the new G-SHOCK watch has a color scheme that's supposedly "meant to reflect the history of Japan." In order to add some rugged variance to the timepiece, G-SHOCK gives parts of the plating a hammered finish.

The face of the watch is complemented with bright accents of electric blue, while its protective covering is bolted on with thick dark metal screws. With just 300 of the latest G-SHOCK watches manufactured, those looking to get a hold of one will have to act quickly.
