G-Shock beefs up MT-G Series offering with dual core guard structure

Casio is expanding its MT-G Series offering, with the introduction of the new G-SHOCK MTGB2000.

Amplifying the Metal Core Guard Structure used in previous MT-G models, the new MTGB2000 features an innovative Dual Core Guard structure that incorporates a carbon fiber-reinforced resin case, which leverages the light weight and rigidity of carbon fiber.

The dual structure utilizes a carbon monocoque case that is surrounded by a metal frame, giving the watch a refined metal look when viewed straight on and from the sides.

This new structure achieves a watch with more visible metal while retaining the popular mid-sized case.

The MTGB2000D-1A model features a black bezel and dial with a layered-composite band made with a higher proportion of fine resin, paired with metal parts and is about 15% lighter than previous models, while the MTGB2000B-1A2 features a black dial with blue accents, and a complementary blue bezel with a soft urethane band for enhanced wearability and optimum fit.

Both models utilize sapphire glass with non-reflective coating to the inner glass for clarity and undergo rough polishing to their beveled edges for a mirror finish.

These models are the first in the MT-G series to be equipped with three dual coil motors for swift operation of the hands and receive radio wave time-calibration signals to instantaneously adjust the time when paired with a smartphone using the dedicated G-SHOCK Connected App.

Other notable features include Triple G Resist (Shock, Vibration, and Centrifugal Force Resistance) to ensure toughness and automatic time adjustment to the local time zone when crossing zones.

The MTGB2000B-1A2 will retail for $950 and the MTGB2000D-1A will retail for $1,000.

They will be available for purchase starting this November at select G-SHOCK retailers, the G-SHOCK Soho Store, and gshock.com.
