we bet you didn’t think a G-SHOCK watch would go with your tuxe event. actually, you are right – that’s until the arrival of the G-SHOCK Metal Twisted MT-G Watches. now, don’t let the CASIO and G-SHOCK brands scare you away; the Japanese electronics maker has proudly claimed that the Metal Twisted MT-G collection is “their most sophisticated and prestigious timepiece collection to date.” if that’s not enough to quell your anxiety of being frown upon at any black tie event – perhaps, the image above (and those in the gallery after the break) should give you the much needed reassurance. there are three premium chronograph models in this collection, but regardless of which model you choose, you will be sure that the time piece is of highest standards of engineering and has been put through rigorous testing at CASIO’s design center in Japan.
beneath its stainless steel case are resin and alpha Gel that forms the shock resistant quality that G-SHOCK watches are known for. other features include LED-infused Tough Movement, Triple G Resist for shock, gravitational drop and even resistance to centrifugal force (fighter pilots, take note), and multi-band 6 Atomic Timekeeping that ensures the accuracy of time by pulling time/date updates from global transmitting stations. as you might have these watches don’t come cheap by CASIO or G-SHOCK standard; the polished stainless steel and resin model (MTGS1000D-1A) has a $900 sticker, the black ion-plated stainless steel and resin version (MTGS1000BD-1A) goes for $1,000 a piece, while the limited edition G-SHOCK 30th anniversary black ion-Plated model (MTGS1030BD-1A), set apart from its cohorts by gold accents and red panel bracelet band, will set you back at $1,100.
the G-SHOCK Metal Twisted MT-G Watches are slated to be available this November exclusively at Tourneau, Tourneau web store, as well as G-SHOCK NYC Soho store till after Thanksgiving. after which, they will be offered at select premium retailers and G-SHOCK online store. click through for a few more look.
