Casio releases the MTG-G1000AR, a new model in the G-SHOCK 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.
