(Pocket-lint) – Casio has announced a special edition G-Shock Mudmaster watch inspired by the Toyota Auto Body Team Land Cruiser.
The Casio G-Shock GWG-2000TLC-1AER has a design theme styled around the veteran of the Dakar Rally race, with forged carbon bezel components and a carbon core guard structure to keep it light, yet able to withstand mud and dust.
The band features a pattern evoking the splatters caused by mud and sand, while there is the Toyota Land Cruiser logo laser engraved on the ion-plated stainless steel rear.
Features found on the watch itself include a built-in compass, altimeter, barometer and thermometer – ideal for racing across the desert.
