Available now at Feldmar Watch Company is this special edition G-Shock – the first in the B-2000 series. The Shougeki-Maru pays tribute to the kabuto helmets worn by Japan’s famous samurai warriors. One of just 400 pieces available worldwide, the combination of rust-colored brown and electric blue metalwork calls to mind the overlapping plates of armor worn by Japan’s feudal warriors.
Each piece is hand-crafted as a collaboration between master metalworker, Masao Kobayashi and casting artisan, Kikuchi Hojudo. Together, their work is reminiscent of the battle-worn armor of the samurai, featuring layers of brown and blue ion plating that is at once old and new.
Functionally, the G-Shock B-2000SH-5A cuts no corners, offering the advanced capabilities that have made G-Shock watches famous. From high-frequency radio calibration to 200m water resistance to Bluetooth integration, alarms, timers, and 27 time zones, the Shougeki-Maru is as useful as it is beautiful.
