This year’s limited edition G-Shock for Chinese New Year is the MTG-B1000CX-4A, which goes on sale in China (MTG-B1000CX-4APFH) on December 4 for 8,490 yuan. The festive gold and red watch celebrates the Year of the Tiger Chinese zodiac sign for 2022. A special tiger stripe pattern adorns the bezel, and a tiger head artwork based on a painting by Hou Shanzhao is engraved on the gold case back. Orders at the official online Casio Store in China include a wooden lacquer case and a limited incense burner with a golden tiger head.
This is the first time that an MT-G model serves as the base for a Chinese New Year edition. The MTG-B1000CX-4A features 200-meter water resistance, Tough Solar power, Multi-Band 6 auto radio time sync, Bluetooth mobile link, Triple G Resist (shock, g-force, vibration), and a sapphire crystal.
Update: The MTG-B1000CX-4A is also expected to be released throughout Asia (but possibly excluding Japan). The MTG-B1000CX-4AER is listed at G-Shock U.K. as coming soon for £999, so it will likely be released throughout Europe as well.
