A Ca­sio spe­cial


Top Gear (Malaysia) - - Watch List -

Ca­sio G-SHOCK’s lat­est time­pieces made their de­buts here re­cently, and in style. The limited edi­tion MR-G2000HA and MTG-B1000 were launched dur­ing a spe­cial evening co-hosted by Ca­sio Malaysia and Cortina Watch at Beta Resto­bar, Kuala Lumpur.

The MR-G2000HA, in­spired by the TETSU-TSUBA (“iron sword guard”) of tra­di­tional Ja­panese swords, is a fine ex­am­ple of how to marry a sym­bol of Ja­panese strength with aes­thetic sen­si­bil­i­ties.

Each time­piece is hand­crafted and fea­tures a new ham­mer tone pat­tern called Arashi-Tuchime (cre­ated by ar­ti­san Bi­hou Asano), a three-way time sync via Blue­tooth, and the G-SHOCK app. In­cor­po­rated too is G-SHOCK’s GPS Hy­brid Wave Cep­tor tech­nol­ogy that ac­cu­rately mea­sures time and lo­ca­tion from any­where on earth.

Only 350 pieces of the G-SHOCK MR-G2000HA will be made, which means only a hand­ful will be avail­able here.

If you can’t get one, fret not be­cause the MTG-B1000 se­ries could make up for it. While it isn’t a limited edi­tion, it does have fea­tures sim­i­lar to the MR-G2000HA’s.

The lat­est in Ca­sio G-SHOCK MTG men’s line, the MTG-B1000 lever­ages to great ef­fect the use of metal and resin in its con­struc­tion. Avail­able in three choices, the MTG-B1000 boasts of hav­ing the lat­est evo­lu­tion of the Core Guard Struc­ture that em­ploys a metal frame formed by join­ing the bezel and back cover with metal parts to house the mod­ule and pro­vide shock re­sis­tance.

The lay­out of the parts has been re­ar­ranged, al­low­ing for a stream­lined pro­file and en­hanced wear­a­bil­ity. Be­sides that, the MTG-B1000 ben­e­fits from Ca­sio’s Con­nected Time En­gine, BLE time-sync, and the G-SHOCK Con­nected smart­phone app.

Like the MR-G2000AH spe­cial, the MTG-B1000 is all about form, func­tion and st yle, mak­ing it ideal for both the ac­tive lifest yle and the ca­sual.
