The G-Shock MT-G gets the 30th anniversary treatment with the release of the MTGS1030BD-1A. This limited edition release features gold highlights and a unique, red paneled bracelet band which honour’s the brand’s heritage colours of black and red.

Only 20 of the MTGS1030BD-1A will be coming to Australia (estimated arrival: mid to late February).

G-Factory Melbourne will be the first place to get it (retail: $1,399)

This new model combines the best of the metal and resin styling that the MT-G line-up has to offer with limited-edition colouring and design elements that commemorate G-Shock’s 30th Anniversary.

A new Core Guard Structure provides outstanding shock resistance. The metal bezel on the front of the watch and metal back cover create a frame that houses the inner workings of the watch to reduce the chance of impact force reaching the watch's module. In addition, Alpha Gel is used at points of contact on the bezel and back cover to further absorb impact. All of this is in addition to G-Shock’s renowned Triple G Resist structure. The case and band surfaces are done to a hairline ?nish, while the bevelled surfaces of parts are Sallaz polished. The red colouring of the inside band surface, gold-coloured buttons and 30th Anniversary logo on the back cover are design variations that will be available for a limited time only. The large resin dial ring combines Casio original cutting technology and new evaporation technology, and the band of watch is formed with highly durable ?ne resin panels, all of which enable both light weight, and outstanding resistance to shock and wear.
