Casio releases the MTG-G1000AR, a new model in the MT -G series designed with a tough and elegant look. Built for long-term usage even in harsh environments, the new watch is made to look better the more it is worn.
MT-G watches offer a distinct combination of the refined look of metal and resin as well as outstanding shock resistance. Among models in the lineup, the MTG-G1000D, released last year, comes with the company’s hybrid time-keeping system for receiving both Global Positioning System (GPS) satellite signals and radio wave time-calibration signals.
The MTG-G1000D has been highly evaluated by global travelers for its ability to display accurate time anywhere in the world, along with its comfortable-to-wear lightweight resin and attractively refined metal finish.
Casio used the MTG-G1000D as the base model for the new MTG-G1000AR. Designed with a “sunken treasure” motif, this special model has been made to withstand harsh environments without ever going out of style—a distinctive G-SHOCK feature. Casio finished the surface with rose-gold ion plating, added a layer of black ion plating, and then stripped off some of the black ion plating to produce a finish with a well-worn vintage appearance.
It also used a matching hue of rose-gold to color each of the glow-in-the-dark minute indicators and hands, as well as the inset dial at the 10 o’clock position. In all of these ways, the watch is inspired by and designed to evoke sunken treasure, down to the last detail.
