G-SHOCK Releases New MT-G Model

G-SHOCK RELEASES STRIKING MT-G MODEL INSPIRED BY VOLCANIC LIGHTNING

New, Premium Model Boasts Vivid, Multi-Colored Design and Semi-Translucent Red Band to Represent the Build Up of Magma

Today, Casio G-SHOCK announces the release of the MTGB1000VL-4A, an all-new, limited-edition to the popular MT-G line up of premium men’s watches. The new model boasts a striking, multi-colored design and rainbow ion-plate bezel that represents volcanic lightning.

A red, blue and white color scheme for the hour, minute and second hands sets them off against the black of the dial and gold hue of the index. A rainbow vapor deposition finish colors the inset dial ring with blue-to-violet gradations.

The MTGB1000VL-4A is also the first MT-G model to use a soft red urethane material for the band, which is made to represent the illusion of magma bubbling up. Fine resin gives the band connection a look of transparency.

The latest MT-G model features a combination of premium style and absolute toughness with an updated Core Guard structure that links the bezel and back cover with planar parts. This tough case construction provides Triple G Resist: Shock Resistant, Centrifugal Gravity-Force Resistant and Vibration Resistant. The timepiece also arrives with Bluetooth ® connectivity that provides automatic time adjustment, easy watch setting, world time for over 300 cities, home time/world time switching, alarm setting and phone finder function.
