Casio G-SHOCK announces its latest collaboration with Wildlife Promising, an authorized nonprofit organization dedicated to African wildlife preservation, on a limited-edition MT-G series model. Inspired by the African Rock Python, the MTGB1000WLP1 boasts a laser-etched band, case and bezel covered in a brown, black, and gold python pattern that is meant to mimic the skin of Africa’s largest python.

Influences from the African Rock Python and Wildlife Promising can be seen throughout the collaboration model’s design. The second hand on the dial sports a bright red color to match the color of the snake’s tongue, while the indicator hand at the 9 0’clock position, emulates the triangular pattern that mimics the top of the python’s distinct head. Wildlife Promising branding can be found on the watchband, as well as the case backing, which is etched with the organization’s mantra and logo, “Love The Sea And The Earth.”

Upholding the premium features of the original MTGB1000 base model, the MTGB1000WLP1 arrives with Bluetooth connectivity and time synchronization via the G-SHOCK Connected app and Multi-Band 6 radio-controlled timekeeping, Tough Solar power, sapphire crystal for enhanced scratch resistance, a dual dial display, and more.

Triple G Resist (Shock, Vibration and Centrifugal Force Resistance), 200M Water Resistance, LED (Super LED), Stopwatch (24Hr), Daily Alarm, Countdown Timer (24Hr), Full Auto Calendar, World Time (39TZ / 27Cities + UTC), The MTGB1000WLP1, which retails for $1,300 will be available for purchase this December at select G-SHOCK retailers, the G-SHOCK Soho Store, and gshock.com.
