Casio launches limited edition, rainbow-coloured G-SHOCK watch - the MT-G Blue Phoenix

Casio G-SHOCK MT-G Blue Phoenix (MTG-B2000PH).

Casio released a new G-SHOCK watch today - the MT-G Blue Phoenix (MTG-B2000PH). It combines the ruggedness and durability of G-SHOCK watches with a resplendent rainbow hue.

According to Casio, the MT-G Blue Phoenix's design motif combines the watch's rainbow ion metal plating applied to its bezel and case, along with a multi-coloured dial. The rainbow gradation of the ion plating is primarily light-blue with intertwined layers of yellow-to-red: an aesthetic that evokes imagery of blazing-hot, mystical flames. The dial's colours are further accented with hints of pink and orange. To bring the colours together, Casio used a translucent navy-blue shade for the watch's band.

Because of its unique make, no two MT-G Blue Phoenix has an identical rainbow ion plating pattern. The watches primarily use a metal construction that marries ion plating, laser engraving, and new materials to create this G-SHOCK variant.

As a modern G-SHOCK timepiece made for 2021 and beyond, it features radio wave time-calibration, automatic time adjustment (with smartphone app pairing), water-resistance of 200m, a solar-charging system, Bluetooth low energy, alongside other G-SHOCK staples that embodies its shock-resistant structure and toughness.

Casio said that the design was inspired by "the Blue Phoenix, a bird of Eastern mythology said to bear auspicious tidings".

Online retail starts on 11 June 2021 at the official Casio G-SHOCK online store, and it will hit physical shelves within G-SHOCK shops from 18 June 2021. A special physical installation featuring the watch will be available at Casio G-SHOCK Premium Marina Bay Sands between 18 to 24 June 2021.
