G-Shock has just unveiled two new wristwatches within its premium MT-G Series.
Introducing the MT-G MTGB2000, delivered in an all-new angular-shaped 51 mm × 15.9 mm case that blends stainless steel with a new “Dual Core Guard” structure that incorporates carbon-fiber-reinforced resin case components to offer lightweight and rigidity (55.1 mm lug-to-lug).
“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,” according to Casio.
Notably, this is the first in the series to be equipped with three dual-coil motors for faster operation of the hands and to more efficiently receive radio wave time-calibration signals to instantaneously adjust the time via Bluetooth when paired with a smartphone using the dedicated G-Shock Connected app.
MT-G Ref. MTGB2000D-1A features a steel-colored case and a black bezel and dial with a layered-composite steel bracelet made with a higher proportion of resin, paired with metal parts resulting in a 15% lighter watch than previous models. The second choice option is Ref. MTGB2000B-1A2 which features a black-PVD treated case with a blue bezel and a soft urethane band. The edges of each case are beveled and polished to enhance the appearance.
Both of the new MT-G wristwatches use a flat sapphire glass with a non-reflective inner coating. Water-resistance is rated to 200 meters and has Triple G Resist technology (Shock, Vibration, and Centrifugal Force Resistance) to enhance durability in any situation.
In addition to Bluetooth time syncing when connected to the G-Shock app, the watch also has the ability to connect to an atomic radio wave signal as a backup. Plus, these are Tough Solar movements that have a battery that is automatically charged by sunlight.
Typical G-Shock functions include a daily alarm, LED, 24-hour stopwatch, world time with DST adjustment, countdown timer, and a full automatic calendar.
The MTGB2000B-1A2 will retail for $950 and the MTGB2000D-1A will retail for $1,000.
