G-SHOCK to celebrate 40 years with new Flare Red collection

0

Casio has introduced the limited edition Flare Red series ahead of the brand’s 40th anniversary celebrations in 2023.

The MTGB3000FR1A and GWG2040FR-1A are the first timepieces to feature a solar flare theme, with the Flare Red look being achieved by crafting the bezels of layered carbon and colored glass fibers, along with embedded phosphorescent material, resulting in a truly unique pattern for every timepiece, making no two bezels alike in the series.

Phosphorescent-embedded forged carbon bezel parts comprise the 12 and 6 o’clock positions of the GWG2040GR-1A, which appear black in daylight and glow in unique patterns to complement the bezel in the dark.

A combination of rose gold and black IP is used for metal parts throughout the timepieces and a solar flare-inspired pattern embellishes the dial beneath a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating.

The MTGB3000FR1A also comes equipped with a Bluetooth link through the Casio Watches app, connecting to a smartphone for functions such as automatic time adjustment, self-check evaluation, phone finder, and more.

The two featured watches of the series, MTGB3000FR1A and GWG2040FR-1A, include the Eric Haze-designed logo commemorating the 40th anniversary engraved on the case back, along with four stars with “SINCE 1983” laser-engraved on the stainless-steel band loop.

The MTGB3000FR1A will retail for $1,300, and the GWG2040FR-1A for $1,100.

Both designs will be available for purchase from October 20th at select retailers, gshock.com, and the G-SHOCK Soho store.
