Casio’s new MTG-B1000RB is finished with rainbow ion plating and commemorates the 20th anniversary of the introduction of MT-G series of watches, which are known for their sturdy construction of both metal and resin.
Casio first introduced the MT-G Series in November 1999. The bezel of the new MTG-B1000RB watch is finished with rainbow ion plating, which vividly refracts light in different colors to evoke a “lunar rainbow.”*
The base model for the watch is the MTG-B1000, with a compact case employing a Core Guard Structure that links the bezel and back cover with planar parts. The Core Guard Structure forms a tough metal frame that protects the inner case from external shocks. The glass is made from sapphire crystal, and the metal parts are polished and treated with a hairline finish, for a look that is refined down to every detail.
The watch also features a soft urethane band for extra comfort, which is attached using durable fine resin and metal parts for optimum strength.
