Basel, March 20, 2019 — Casio Computer Co., Ltd., announced today the latest addition to its G-SHOCK line of shock-resistant watches. The new MTG-B1000RB is finished with rainbow ion plating and commemorates the 20th anniversary of the MT-G series of watches, which are known for a construction that makes the most of the properties of both metal and resin.
Casio first introduced the MT-G Series in November 1999, based on the concept of leveraging both metal and resin. The new MTG-B1000RB is a special model commemorating the 20th anniversary of the MT-G Series. The bezel of the watch is finished with rainbow ion plating, which vividly refracts light in different colors to evoke a “lunar rainbow.”*
The base model for the watch is the MTG-B1000, which realized toughness in a compact case by employing a Core Guard Structure that links the bezel and back cover with planar parts. The Core Guard Structure forms a tough metal frame that protects the inner case from external shocks. The glass is made from sapphire crystal, and the metal parts are polished and treated with a hairline finish, for a look that is refined down to every detail. The watch also features a soft urethane band for enhanced wearability, which is attached using durable fine resin and metal parts for optimum strength.
The special packaging is also finished with rainbow ion plating for a look worthy of an anniversary model.
