G-Shock is releasing the MTG-B2000PH-2A this summer, which is based on the mythical Blue Phoenix, a symbol of immortality and rebirth. The watch features a rainbow ion plating on the bezel and case, a multi-colored dial, and a translucent band.
To achieve its unique look, the bezel and case have a light blue ion-plating, over which gradations of yellow to red are applied to the middle sections. This process results in unique color variations in which no two watches are exactly alike. The dial has pink and orange accents, and the translucent silicone band is navy blue. (Although the band looks opaque and black in the images, Casio states that it is translucent and blue. Kakakumag confirms that the band is dark but translucent.) These colors evoke the image of the Blue Phoenix rising from the ashes and flames.
In Japan, the MTG-B2000PH-2AJR has a tax-included price of 143,000 JPY and will be released in May 2021. The MTG-B2000PH-2A was also announced for the Asia region. Based on the “JR” in the Japanese model name, this is a limited edition model. The MTG-B2000PH-2A will be released throughout Asia. G-Shock U.S. is expected to release the MTGB2000PH-2A (as the MTGB2000PH2A) for $1,100, and the MTG-B2000PH-2AER is expected to be released in Europe for 1,049 euros.
The MTG-B2000 base is a high-end G-Shock featuring Tough Solar power, Multi-Band 6 auto radio-sync timekeeping, Triple G Resist (shock, centrifugal force, vibration), 200-meter water resistance, sapphire crystal, Bluetooth smartphone link, dual time, 1-second stopwatch (24 hours), countdown timer (24 hours), daily alarm, and Super Illuminator LED light with afterglow.
