CASIO G-SHOCK MT-G LAUNCH @ ION SKY!

 
At the launch of the CASIO G-SHOCK MT-G on 3rd November 2015 @ Ion Sky!
It was a nice afternoon event high up on the 55th floor of Ion Orchard.
 
A prestigious good launch of the G-Shock MT-G Series!
 
It was presented by a few professional Japanese who are very serious in what they are doing and providing us. Which is a good thing.. so that we get the best thing out of it!
 
G-Shock has been around for many years and it has been a tough and durable watch ever since its establishment. It has a growing number of ardent fans from all around the world; collecting G-Shock watches. A few of my friends are G-Shock watch collectors and myself is a member on a G-Shock Fanpage in Singapore on the Facebook. Always seeing enthusiastic G-Shock lovers putting up their favourite pictures of their G-Shock/s on the fanpage and members liking their postings. There are really these groups of G-Shock-ing people..
 
Here with the Singapore's CASIO representative having his say on the G-Shock MT-G.
 
The MT-G series was actually borned in 1999 and it has a few models thereafter till now it launches the latest MT-G model in 2015. 
 
So here's the G-SHOCK MTG-G1000D!
In full stainless-steel metal twisted chain.
 
And a closer look at it to lure your interest!
 
The internal details of the G-SHOCK MT-G for your observation.
 
It boasts the improved Core Guard Structure that boosts the watch’s shock-resistance using a newly developed spring-like fine resin. Wearers need not worry about hard knocks or impact even while on the go as the resin acts as a cushion to protect the module and watch face.

Other models at the launch...

 
EDIFICE.
 
OCEANUS.
 
MR-G.

Nice canapés served at the event.. as well as good wine.
 
They also showcased the G-Shock Gravity Master which also has the Global Time Sync at the event.
It is probably the most affordable Global Time Sync G-Shock you can get.
Its interface is nice with simple dials in it.
 
A closer look at the skeleton of the Gravity Master.

I personally own a few G-Shocks as well.. and my favourite one would be the G-Shock GA1000-1A Aviation Series which I find every detail is very nice with a tinge of orange that gives it a sportier look to the overall interface.
 
Here's just a glimpse of it!

The MT-G series is one that is even tougher and it guarantees superb timekeeping as it is armed with Casio’s revolutionary GPS Wave Ceptor Technology and a Dual Coil Motor to quickly adjust and display accurate time, no matter where in the world.


If given a choice of these two.. its really a tough choice for me as both of 'em exudes their own style with their respective persona.

But I shall take blue.

The MTG-G1000D comes in two colour variations, stainless steel with either Blue (MTG-G1000D1A2) or Black (MTG-G1000D-1A) coded City Code Rings. Both models retail at a Suggested Retail Price of SGD$1,799.00 in limited quantities from 3 November 2015 onwards, at all G-Factory stores as well as Cortina Chinatown Point outlet.

Casio Releases Distinguished Metal Twisted G-SHOCK MTG-G1000D Series for the Discerning Globetrotter - Definitely Worth Your Read!

 
Latest addition to G-SHOCK’s sophisticated MT-G line comes armed with Casio’s revolutionary GPS Hybrid Wave Ceptor and Dual Coil Motor for precise timekeeping worldwide.
 
 
Singapore, 3 November 2015: Casio Singapore has announced the arrival of the G-SHOCK MTG-G1000D, the latest addition to its premium line-up of Metal Twisted G-SHOCK timepieces, which has been enhanced to suit today’s savvy jetsetter. It guarantees superb timekeeping as it is armed with Casio’s revolutionary GPS Wave Ceptor Technology and a Dual Coil Motor to quickly adjust and display accurate time, no matter where in the world.

The MTG-G1000D is the final piece to be added to Casio’s Global Time Sync collection, alongside selected G-SHOCK, EDIFICE and OCEANUS models featuring Casio’s pioneering and world’s first1 GPS Wave Ceptor Technology which utilises radio wave time-calibration and Global Positioning System (GPS) signals for instant and accurate timekeeping even across changing time zones.
 
 
Dual Coil Motor
 
When adjusting to different time zones, a Dual Coil Motor powers the inset dial’s watch hands at the six o’clock position to swiftly rotate both clockwise or counter-clockwise to almost instantly reflect the accurate time when the world time function is activated. Using the Dual Coil Motor, wearers can also instantly switch between world and home time displays on the main and inset dials, making the MTGG1000D especially suitable for frequent travellers.
 
 
Advanced Core Guard Structure and Polished Finishing
 
Within the robust 198g stainless steel frame is Casio’s new and improved Core Guard Structure that boosts the watch’s shock-resistance using a newly developed spring-like fine resin. Wearers need not worry about hard knocks or impact even while on the go as the resin acts as a cushion to protect the module and watch face.
 

The MTG-G1000D is also fortified with Casio’s proprietary Triple G Resist – designed to withstand shocks from drops, gravitational forces and vibration – for unparalleled toughness and durability. Encased in stainless steel, it is a sophisticated fusion of strength and beauty complete with stunning Sallaz-polished finishing and sapphire crystal on the watch face.

In 2013, Casio premiered the MT-G Metal Twisted G-SHOCK in Singapore, a collection designed for active and discerning gentlemen who enjoy the prestige of a luxury accessory but also seek outstanding performance and absolute toughness promised by a G-SHOCK.

Singapore: LTA Officer "Beats" up Uber Driver!

 

Everything has a reason for the LTA Officer to react this way!
Netizens would sure condemned his act by initiating the fight first..
He should still remain his cool no matter how the public react to him.
I'm not siding any side but I somehow felt that both are at fault.
Just think before you act!

Wihardja Furnishing Tour | With 5% Discount PromoCode Unleashed!

 
I have always been an artistic person.. hence it contributes to the tastes and interest I have in interior design. From young.. I would love to have my house all-white and clean. But of course.. as time changes.. I have a change in perception of things and I felt that I like some other kind of home decors too. As long as you have a theme.. That's it! You wouldn't go wrong! I personally feel you can't have a mix of different themes together. If you have a theme.. just go with it!
 
Here at Wihardja.. they have lotsa Hip and Funky Furnitures!
Which can easily suit to any theme of yours that YOU want to have for your home!
And I really LOVE 'Em!
 
Most of the furniture here are made of Teak Wood and Suar Wood.

Just look at this Standing Lamp which comes with a vintage-look clock..
Isn't that cool?
 
Here are some similar ones.. but they are Table Lamps.. with the right one which comes with the clock. :)
 
I like this Drum Wood Standing Lamp .. Its pretty interesting that a Drum Wood can be converted in to a lamp which turn out so nice as well.. And it ended off with a tripod stand which made it seem like half of it is like a telescope!
  
 
A Simple Love word adds a bit of love to the home and people around you! Isn't it? I Love it!
 
 
Side table.. this would be especially good when I wanna have Maggie Mee (instant noodles) and watch TV on my couch at the same time! :)
 
How bout a wooden anchor ?

Nice wooden table which looks really solid.. and the patterns on it are nice and smooth.
Accompanied at the sides are a few wooden stools with different designs.
They are all made of Teak Wood and Suar Wood.

Haze

Our factory does not allow condone the use of ‘slash and burn’ technique for the clearing of lands for cultivation.
