The pinnacle of the event came as the highly anticipated new luxury timepieces from G-SHOCK were announced: the metal twisted MT-G Collection. This game changer will reposition the G-SHOCK brand into a more premium space for the affluent consumer — the MT-G, Metal Twisted G-SHOCK collection is a completely new timepiece crafted at Casio’s advanced factory in Yamagata, Japan, for select premium styles.
