In May 2006, CASIO introduced a new product in its shock-resistant G-SHOCK series — the Limited Edition M:i:III (Mission Impossible III) G-SHOCK. This exclusive watch was launched to commemorate the release of the third film in the Mission Impossible movie series.
CASIO’s G-SHOCK watches are built on a rock-solid, shock-resistant base, and they continue to push the envelope in performance, functionality, design, materials and radical reliability. Their distinctive rugged look and intrepid styling have made G-SHOCK watches a hit with young people all around the world.
The “Mission Impossible” series was launched in 1996. CASIO’s shock-resistant G-SHOCK watches are a long-standing part of the Mission: Impossible story. The film’s unbeatable action hero, Ethan Hunt (played by Tom Cruise) wore G-SHOCK watches in these movies.
The Limited Edition M:i:III G-SHOCK was released in 2006 in commemoration of the release of M:i:III. Throughout the movie, Ethan Hunt wears the solar-powered G-SHOCK model MTG-910.
The limited-edition watch, based on that model, has “M:i:III” inscribed on the back face. It was supplied in highly original packaging featuring an “M:i:III” design.
