G-Shock MT-G Stainless Steel

This watch is new addition to the MT-G lineup that combines metal and resin into attractive, high-function timepieces. This model feature a new Core Guard Structure that provides outstanding shock resistance. The metal bezel on the front of the watch and metal back cover create a frame that houses inner workings to reduce the chance of impact force reaching the watch's module. In addition, α gel is used at points of contact on the bezel and back cover to further absorb impact. All of this is in addition to G-SHOCK's renowned Triple G Resist structure. The case and band surfaces are done to a hairline finish, while the beveled surfaces of parts are sallaz polished to a shiny finish. The large resin dial ring combines CASIO original cutting technology and new evaporation technology, which enable both light weight and outstanding shock resistant. The band of the watch is fitted with highly durable fine resin panels that deliver a great fit to the wrist along with light weight.

Core Guard Structure
Four stainless-steel pipes form a metal frame that joins the bezel securely with the case back. A resin case is mounted inside the frame to protect the module from direct shocks. This Core Guard Structure with its metal frame mirrors the basic G-SHOCK concept of a “hollow structure” in which the module is floated in the air with support at just a few points.

Layered composite band
Metal band parts are combined with lightweight but highly durable fine resin parts to achieve a solid feel and reduce weight simultaneously.

Four-layer dial structure
The 3D dial, comprising four layers and conveying an impression of depth, is mounted with oversized hour markers with prominently protruding edges. Despite the use of resin material to absorb shocks, G-SHOCK's unique cutting and evaporation technologies have helped to produce a robust, radiantly beautiful form.

Sallaz polishing
The bezel, bevelled case sections are processed with Sallaz polishing, a superlative metal-polishing technique, to create beautiful mirror surfaces.
