MTG-G1000D-1A2DR

Recently, Casio has been pushing the luxury (aka expensive) range of G-Shock watches to the consumers. I am not surprised if one day, Casio announces their decision to join in the fun to manufacture luxury watches to the likes of Rolex, Panerai and etc. They already have one that is costing around S$12K (G-SHOCK MRG-G1000RT  retailing at SGD11,888.00). Design wise, I can see that Casio is still maintaining the character of a G-Shock. Hopefully, they will not change it in anyway.

Do check out the Press Release for more information.

Dual Coil Motor

When adjusting to different time zones, a Dual Coil Motor powers the inset dial’s watch hands at the six o’clock position to swiftly rotate both clockwise or counter-clockwise to almost instantly reflect the accurate time when the world time function is activated. Using the Dual Coil Motor, wearers can also instantly switch between world and home time displays on the main and inset dials, making the MTG-G1000D especially suitable for frequent travellers.

Advanced Core Guard Structure and Polished Finishing

Within the robust 198g stainless steel frame is Casio’s new and improved Core Guard Structure that boosts the watch’s shock-resistance using a newly developed spring-like fine resin. Wearers need not worry about hard knocks or impact even while on the go as the resin acts as a cushion to protect the module and watch face.
The MTG-G1000D is also fortified with Casio’s proprietary Triple G Resist – designed to withstand shocks from drops, gravitational forces and vibration – for unparalleled toughness and durability. Encased in stainless steel, it is a sophisticated fusion of strength and beauty complete with stunning Sallaz-polished finishing and sapphire crystal on the watch face.

Pricing and Availability

In 2013, Casio premiered the MT-G Metal Twisted G-SHOCK in Singapore, a collection designed for active and discerning gentlemen who enjoy the prestige of a luxury accessory but also seek outstanding performance and absolute toughness promised by a G-SHOCK. It is engineered and carefully crafted in Japan with the finest materials and opulent styling to deliver a luxurious timepiece while staying true to the durability of an original G-SHOCK.
