What is G-SHOCK's high-end line " MT-G "? Explanation of the appeal created by the fusion of metal and resin!

MT-G” is G-SHOCK’s high-end line of watches that fuses the brand’s iconic resin parts with stylish metal. In this issue, we dissect the features and appeal of MT-G and introduce everything from the standard models to the latest models!

An in-depth look at the features and appeal of G-SHOCK’s ” MT-G!

G-SHOCK’s ” MT-G ” was introduced in 1999. The series name “MT” stands for “Metal Twisted,” and its concept of “fusion of metal and resin” drew a great deal of attention. The series was renewed in 2013, the 30th anniversary year of the series. Five years later, in 2018, a new structure was established, and the series continues to evolve in pursuit of the latest technology. What are the features and appeal of such “MT-G” watches?

Dual Core Guard Structure

The “Core Guard Structure” originally developed by Casio for the MT-G has greatly improved durability over previous models. This is achieved by integrating the bezel and back cover with pipes, and adopting a lightweight and shock-resistant carbon material for the inner case that houses the movement. In 2020, the “Dual Core Guard Structure,” a further evolution of this structure, was born.

The “Dual Core Guard Structure” is a double-layered structure that sandwiches a carbon monocoque inner case with a stainless steel bezel and middle case, further increasing shock resistance. The one-piece molding contributes to increased rigidity while at the same time reducing size and weight. The stainless steel back cover is formed into a complex three-dimensional shape through several processes of pressing, cutting, and polishing, which is another detail that cannot be overlooked. This is interlocked with the top bezel and connected with a specially shaped screw to create a thin and lightweight exterior with a sense of metal mass and exquisite formative beauty. While the design has a luxurious feel that allows the wearer to enjoy the beautiful texture of the metal from both the front and sides, it is also lighter and more comfortable to wear than its appearance would suggest.

Durable and lightweight combination material bracelet

“MT-G” bracelets, with the exception of some series, are made of fine resin with a hairline and polished finish that is highly durable. The “composite band” is a combination of parts made of fine resin with a hairline and polished finish for superior durability, except for some series. In addition to its low thermal conductivity and high strength, this bracelet is much lighter and more comfortable to wear than it looks due to the hollowed-out frames. The belt can be changed with a push of a button on either side of the lugs without using any tools, so it is easy to enjoy the arrangement.

Luxury design for both on and offline use

By fusing resin parts and metal, the “MT-G” is lightweight and durable, yet has a luxurious feel that matches its elegant styling. The windshields of most series are made of scratch-resistant, highly transparent sapphire glass, with an anti-reflective coating on the inner surface to ensure clear visibility and a beautiful appearance. Some also feature LED lights on the dial and a super illuminator that is active in dark places. MT-G, which combines design and functionality, is recommended for those who are looking for a watch that can be used both on and off the job, not only for daily use but also to match with business style without discomfort.

Equipped with convenient and highly functional technology

What makes the MT-G amazing is not only its design, durability, and light weight, but also its “Connected Engine,” which links to your smartphone via Bluetooth and connects to a time server. The “Connected Engine,” which links to a smartphone via Bluetooth and connects to a time server, enables the watch to receive standard radio waves and obtain accurate time information from around the world. In addition, various functions can be easily set by linking the watch to the dedicated “CASIO WATCHES” application on a smartphone. This reduces the time-setting time when traveling abroad or on business trips. The watch is powered by electric energy charged by the solar panel, so there is no need to worry about running out of battery power.
