On the heels of success of TEAM LAND CRUISER TOYOTA AUTO BODY at the recent 2022 DAKAR RALLY, CASIO is celebrating success with an Limited Edition G-Shock!
Because we are Toyota Land Cruisers fans along with DAKAR RALLY RIAD FANS, we have to share this with you!
In true JDM fashion, this is the Toyota Auto Body Team Land Cruiser x G-Shock Mudmaster GWG-2000TLC-1AJR for Dakar Rally 2022! The G-Shock GWG-2000TLC-1AJR is the first limited edition Mudmaster GWG-2000 model and will be released in Japan in January 2022 for 110,000 yen / 959.58 $USD. The watch is a collaboration CASIO with Toyota Auto Body’s Team Land Cruiser to commemorate its participation in the 2022 Dakar Rally as they have captured their 9th consecutive victory in the Production Car Category of the DAKAR RALLY. The watch’s blue accents reflect the color of the car, and camo-like graphics that resemble dirt and mud are printed on the bezel and band.
The GWG-2000TLC-1AJR is made with a carbon fiber reinforced case and forged carbon parts. Major features include shock resistance, 200-meter water resistance, mud and dust resistance, Tough Solar power, Multi-Band 6 auto radio timekeeping, and the Triple Sensor (pressure with altimeter and barometer, compass, and thermometer). The Dakar Rally took place in Saudi Arabia from January 2 to 14, 2022. G-Shock is an official partner of Toyota Auto Body. This will be the Land Cruiser 200 Series’ last appearance at the Dakar Rally, as the newly launched Land Cruiser 300 Series will compete at the 2023 Dakar Rally.
It’s not yet known if the watch will be released outside of Japan, but a previous GG-1000TLC-1A Team Land Cruiser collaboration from 2018 was also released in other countries, so it is possible and seems likely. With that, here are some listings of the GWG-2000TLC-1AJR on eBay.
