Watch This — Casio's Timely Debut Possesses Satellite Sensitivities

Able to receive satellite signals, possessing solar-powered and multi-band technology... this is not your father's Earth station, but the new MT-G GPS Hybrid G-SHOCK watch from Casio.

Similar to all MT-G GPS Hybrid models, the solar-powered MTGG1000RB-1A comes equipped with GPS satellite radio wave reception and Multiband 6 technology. This hybrid technology allows the watch to receive signals from satellites as well as from six different transmitters around the globe for the most accurate timekeeping and also allows for intuitive access to all key functions with Smart Access technology.

The watch was crafted at Casio's Yamagata factory in Japan and this limited edition features an ion plated stainless steel and fine resin case and layered composite band with unique dark grey rough blast finish, and an anti-glare sapphire-glass crystal. In addition, the MTGG1000RB-1A is equipped with G-SHOCK technology, including 200 meter water resistance and Triple G Resist, to guard against shock, centrifugal force and vibrations. For visibility, a LED Super Illuminator Light is employed.  Features such as World Time with 40 time zones that include 27 cities + UTC, Daily Alarm, 1/20th second Stopwatch, Countdown Timer, and 12/24 Hour Formats, make it a global timepiece, all enveloped in a 54.7 mm case.
