It is a mature, refined-looking G-Shock that adds sophistication while maintaining the brand’s legendary toughness. It’s the rare G-Shock that can match any outfit and occasion.

The MT-G features a stainless steel case and Triple G Resist meaning it is shock resistant, vibration resistant, and g-force resistant. Its unique Core Guard Structure has an Alpha Gel shock absorber It is an all-analog design with a seconds hand and 4 subdials along with the time and date. Features include 200m water resistance, quick set world time, chronograph, countdown timer, and alarm. The purely analog display gives the watch a more expensive and upscale look than the typical G-Shock. Operational control is intuitive with its Smart Access electronic crown. The watch also features Multi-Band 6 Wave Ceptor technology for automatic time-syncing and Tough Solar charging. The band is a layered composite with stainless steel on the outer band and a resin layer on the inner band for maximum strength and thermal-controlled comfort.

The MT-G adds a new level of luxury to the G-Shock brand. Is it worth $1,000? It is if you want a luxury watch that has the legendary toughness and convenience of a G-Shock. The CEO of Casio’s Timepiece Division has said this watch will not just last a lifetime but for will last for “generations.” If that’s true then it justifies the price. If the MT-G is not quite prestigious enough, then you should consider the MRG-G1000.
