FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

THE G-SHOCK MT-G HYBRID: “Metal Twisted G-Shock”

Non-Stop, Self-Adjusting Technology in a Tough and Sophisticated Composite Design

DOVER, NJ, APRIL 1, 2008 - Casio America, Inc. introduces a new premium G-Shock watch - the MTG-1000 Hybrid Design.  Incorporating the G-Shock toughness with sophisticated design, the MT-G Hybrid breeds the perfect balance of stainless steel and resin to deliver the ultimate level of shock resistance.

MTG1000G-9A“We are thrilled to be introducing a high-end G-shock that blends advanced technology with style,” said Dave Johnson, Senior General Manager of Casio Timepiece Division.  “The MT-G Hybrid is the perfect watch for men who seek sophistication and elegance to match their rugged and active lifestyle.”

The MT-G Hybrid G-Shock has a full analog display with perpetual calendar and utilizes lightweight aluminium hands reinforced by a brass joining ring, which helps stabilize the hands  under extreme impacts and vibrations.  Additionally, the watch case is protected by both a stainless steel bezel and a resin layer allowing extra support on direct impact to protect the inner workings of the watch.  The band is also constructed of alternating stainless steel & resin links and the face of the double-locking deployment clasp has a resin protector embedded within.

The MT-G Hybrid features the multi-band atomic timekeeping (US, UK, GERMANY, JAPAN,) tough solar power, 200-meter water resistance, 27-city world time, 1/20 second chronograph and reverse countdown timer, making it the most advanced G-shock for the sophisticated gentlemen.

The stylish MTG-1000 is composed of stainless steel and black resin, with a choice of silver or gold accented hands and details. The series is currently available for $400 at select Macy’s locations nationwide and www.gshock.com.
