G-Shock Japan announced three new MT-G (Metal Twisted G-Shock) watches for September. They are the black (or dark gray)/copper MTG-G1000RB-1AJF (limited edition), the silver/black/red MTG-G1000RS-1AJF, and the silver/blue MTG-G1000RS-2AJF. These models have a textured surface on the body and bezel, which is a rough blast finish inspired by meteors traveling from space and reaching Earth without burning out. The fully analog, solar-powered G-Shock MTG-G1000 series includes high-end features like GPS Hybrid Wave Ceptor timekeeping for worldwide time syncing and a sapphire crystal. These watches are manufactured exclusively at the Premium Production Line at the Yamagata Casio factory in Japan.
