    What does MT-G stand for?

    I have thought that MTG stands for MeTal G-shock.
    But, is this correct?

    In looking at the face of my new MTG-910DA, it reads "MT-G".
    Note the hyphen is between the T and G.

    What does MT-G stand for? Is it indeed MeTal-G?

    Now, why does my metal bracelet stainless steel G-7000D not get the designation MT-G7000D? Is it because it is an older model? Is it because it is not Wave Ceptor?

    Thanks.
    regards,
    James

    Hi James,

    It means Metal Twisted G (-Shock). These models have high end polyurethane pieces in the metal bracelets.

    In the MTG-9X0 models if I recall right (I haven't got one near now) the bezel and last part of the bracelet is made of resin. If I am right the first MT-G models had these metal twisted watchbands. I see I have non of these models in my collection, only with the upper parts and bezel out of resin.


    (this watch is part of the Jurphaas Collection)

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    I whish I could find an picture of an original MT-G, but imagine this kind of watchband (a watch from the "The G" series).

    THREAD RESURRECTION! Im the owner of a new MT-G 910 and came across this thread looking into the components. I found a site selling new bracelets for this model, at 68.00 a pop. Wow.

    I didn't PAY 68.00 for mine (forumite)
