America’s largest luxury watch extravaganza, WatchTime New York, returns for its fifth consecutive year at Midtown Manhattan’s Gotham Hall on October 25 – 26, 2019. This year’s event, now less than a week away, is shaping up to be the biggest yet, with 37 participating watch brands displaying their latest and greatest timepieces. Among these brands is Casio’s G-Shock, which will showcase the latest additions to its premium MTG-B1000 series.
G-Shock has recently announced an update to its high-end MTG-B1000 division that adds a carbon bezel to the Bluetooth-enabled watch. The new MTG-B1000XBD and B1000XB builds on the dual-construction identity of combining resin and metal that the MT-G line has made its name on (“MT” stands for Metal Twisted, after all). Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, the MT-G family has grown in importance in recent years as the brand continues to shift further upmarket. The carbon fiber bezel helps in that regard by further enhancing the collection’s physical offering while remaining an accessible purchase overall.
