As legendary action film star Bruce Lee, who would have turned 80 years old this year, Casio Computer Co., Ltd. announced the release of MRG-G2000B to commemorate the icon. The watch is a new addition to the MR-G Series and only 300 copies of the limited edition watch will go on sale worldwide without any specific date mentioned by Casio at the time of writing.
Iconic Bruce Lee colours & design
Maintaining iconic Bruce Lee colours are the black and yellow used for the case and the band respectively limited edition G-SHOCK. In addition, the bezel is engraved with “Using no way as a way, having no limitation as limitation,” a phrase that expresses the limitless potential of Jeet Kune Do.
The back case of the watch is engraved with Jeet Kune Do logo while the 3 o’clock position on the dial is also decorated with Bruce Lee’s signature using the Chinese character “龍,” or dragon, Bruce’s nickname. These features definitely make the limited edition watch infused with the energy of Bruce Lee, whose intense spirit transcends the generations.
Other worthy mention on the watch features are time adjustment using radio wave time-calibration signals, GPS satellite signals, and Bluetooth® to ensure accurate time reflecting time zone changes around the world and daylight savings time.
