One of the most hotly anticipated G-Shocks of the year has got to be the MTG-B1000RB, a special model released to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the MT-G series.

The MT-G series is one of the G-Shock's premium collection and it's distinguishable by its hand-polished metal case and the fact that it is assembled in Japan at Casio's state-of-the-art Yamagata facility.

The new MTG-B1000RB is based on the MTG-B1000 but features an iridescent rainbow ion-plated that looks downright cool.

Apart from looking extremely funky, the MTG-B1000RB is built to be extremely tough and packed with features. So it's not just all looks and no substance.

The colorful bezel is actually part of the Core Guard Structure that is the first line of defense against shocks. This protects the inner carbon-fiber reinforced resin case which protects the watch's movement. It also has a water resistance rating of 200 meters.

Functions include Multi-band 6 atomic time-syncing, dual-time display, chronograph functions, countdown timer, and Bluetooth connectivity.

Bluetooth connectivity is especially useful since it can be difficult to adjust and access all the myriad functions of this watch.

Using the G-Shock Connected app, owners will be able to easily sync the watch to atomic time and change the time zones displayed on the dial.

The Casio G-Shock MTG-B1000RB will be available in Singapore on 24 May and is priced at S$1,499.
