G-SHOCK Unveils Additions to MT-G Series Featuring All-New Dual Core Guard Structure



New Luxury Timepieces Feature Bolder Use of Metal

DOVER, NEW JERSEY, octubre 14, 2020 — Today, Casio introduces the all-new G-SHOCK MTGB2000, adding to its luxury MT-G series, best known for combining style, toughness and practicality.

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.

Boasting the utmost functionality, 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.

As part of the release, G-SHOCK has unveiled an exclusive landing page taking consumers through the features, which can be viewed HERE.

Both models also come equipped with G-SHOCK technology including:
  • Resistente al agua a 200 m
  • Resistencia al impacto
  • Resistencia Triple G
  • Radio Wave Reception
  • Tough Solar Power System
  • Bluetooth? low energy

  • Automatic Time Adjustment
  • Full Auto LED (Super LED)
  • Stopwatch (24Hr)
  • World Time (27 Time Zones, DST)
  • Temporizador de cuenta regresiva

The MTGB2000B-1A2 will retail for $950 and the MTGB2000D-1A will retail for $1,000 and will be available for purchase starting this November at select G-SHOCK retailers, the G-SHOCK Soho Store, and gshock.com.

Acerca de G-SHOCK
El reloj G-SHOCK de Casio, resistente a golpes, es sinónimo de dureza, se creó a partir del sue?o del desarrollador, el se?or Ibe, de “crear un reloj que nunca se rompiera”. Más de 200 muestras hechas a mano se crearon y se probaron hasta la destrucción, pero finalmente en 1983, el primer G-SHOCK, ahora icónico, llegó a las tiendas de Japón y comenzó a establecerse como “el reloj más resistente de todos los tiempos”. Cada reloj reúne los 7 elementos: resistencia a impactos eléctricos, resistencia a gravedad, resistencia a bajas temperaturas, resistencia a vibraciones, resistencia al agua, resistencia a golpes y dureza. El reloj cuenta con innovaciones y tecnologías de Casio para evitar que sufra golpes directos, lo que incluye componentes internos protegidos con uretano y módulos de cronometraje suspendidos en la estructura del reloj. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve, continuing to support on Mr. Ibe’s mantra “never, never give up." www.gshock.com.
