G-SHOCK RELEASES LIMITED-EDITION COLLABORATION WITH WILDLIFE PROMISING INSPIRED BY THE AFRICAN ROCK PYTHON
Latest MT-G Model Features a Laser Etched Python Pattern Across the Ultra-Premium Band and Bezel


DOVER, NJ, noviembre 19, 2020 — Today, Casio G-SHOCK announces its latest collaboration with Wildlife Promising, an authorized nonprofit organization dedicated to African wildlife preservation, on a limited-edition MT-G series model. Inspired by the African Rock Python, the MTGB1000WLP1 boasts a laser etched band, case and bezel covered in a brown, black, and gold python pattern that is meant to mimic the skin of Africa’s largest python.


Influences from the African Rock Python and Wildlife Promising can be seen throughout the collaboration model’s design. The second hand on the dial sports a bright red color to match the color of the snake’s tongue, while the indicator hand at the 9 o’clock position, emulates the triangular pattern that mimics the top of the python’s distinct head. Wildlife Promising branding can be found on the watch band, as well as the case backing, which is etched with the organization’s mantra and logo, “Love The Sea And The Earth."


Upholding the premium features of the original MTGB1000 base model, the MTGB1000WLP1 arrives with Bluetooth? connectivity and time synchronization via the G-SHOCK Connected app and Multi-Band 6 radio-controlled timekeeping, Tough Solar power, sapphire crystal for enhanced scratch resistance, a dual dial display, and more.


The limited-edition MTGB1000WLP1 also comes equipped with standard G-SHOCK technology such as:
  • Triple G Resist (Shock, Vibration and Centrifugal Force Resistance)
  • Resistente al agua a 200 m
  • LED (Super LED)
  • Stopwatch (24Hr)
  • Alarma diaria
  • Temporizador de cuenta regresiva
  • Calendario completamente automático
  • World Time (39 Time Zones/ 27Cities + UTC)

Acerca de G-SHOCK
El reloj G-SHOCK de Casio, resistente a golpes, es sinónimo de dureza, se creó a partir del sue?o del desarrollador, el se?or Ibe, de “crear un reloj que nunca se rompiera”. Más de 200 muestras hechas a mano se crearon y se probaron hasta la destrucción, pero finalmente en 1983, el primer G-SHOCK, ahora icónico, llegó a las tiendas de Japón y comenzó a establecerse como “el reloj más resistente de todos los tiempos”. Cada reloj reúne los 7 elementos: resistencia a impactos eléctricos, resistencia a gravedad, resistencia a bajas temperaturas, resistencia a vibraciones, resistencia al agua, resistencia a golpes y dureza. El reloj cuenta con innovaciones y tecnologías de Casio para evitar que sufra golpes directos, lo que incluye componentes internos protegidos con uretano y módulos de cronometraje suspendidos en la estructura del reloj. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve, continuing to support on Mr. Ibe’s mantra “never, never give up." www.gshock.com.
