Casio Releases New Shock-Resistant MT-G Watch with a Vintage Look
Look Achieved by Layering Gold and Black Ion Plating

BASEL, March 26, 2014 – Casio Computer Co., Ltd. announced today the limited edition release of a new MT-G shock-resistant watch that combines strength and beauty. With only 500 watches produced, the MTG-S1000BS features a vintage feel including brass accents created by layering gold and black ion plating.

The MT-G line of G-SHOCK watches offer outstanding shock-resistance combined with the feel and appearance of a metal exterior. As part of this line, the MTG-S1000 was released last year. It featured a new Core Guard Structure for shock-resistant performance, advanced Triple G Resist* construction, and an exterior with the look and feel of metal. It has gained popularity for its tough performance, and its clean and simple lines.
* Reinforced construction to resist shocks, centrifugal force and vibrations.

While based on the robust and timeless design of the MTG-S1000, the new MTG-S1000BS features a special ion-plating finish for a vintage feel. It conveys the appeal of a G-SHOCK watch that can withstand harsh environments and be used for many years. To achieve the color of brass which is known for becoming even more attractive as time goes on, the new watch features black ion plating layered over gold ion plating, with some of the top layer then burnished away. The result is a well worn appearance, creating a special model with a vintage feel.
