The latest from Casio;
Casio has announced the latest additions to its G-SHOCK line of shock-resistant watches. The new MTG-B2000 models are part of the MT-G series of watches, which are known for a construction that makes the most of the properties of both metal and resin. The MTG-B2000 features a new innovation—the Dual Core Guard structure—which accentuates the beauty and feel of metal.
The new MTG-B2000 watches feature a Metal Core Guard Structure, used in previous MT-G series watches. Employing a new Dual Core Guard Structure that incorporates a carbon fibre-reinforced resin case, it offers light weight and rigidity. The watch features a dual structure with a carbon monocoque case that integrates the case and case back.
This is surrounded by metal frame, giving the watch a refined metal look when viewed straight on and from the sides. This new structure means more visible metal, while retaining the popular mid-sized case and weight. The MTG-B2000 watches also feature Triple G Resist to resist dropping shocks, centrifugal gravity, and vibration.
The MTG-B2000BD and MTG-B2000D models both come with a new layered-composite band made with a higher proportion of resin, paired with metal parts. They are both about 15% lighter than the predecessor model. The MTG-B2000B comes with a soft urethane band for enhanced wearability and optimum fit, which also accentuates the bold impression.
These new watches are the first in the MT-G series to be equipped with three dual coil motors, for swift operation of the hands. In addition to receiving radio wave time-calibration signals, the watch automatically sets the time when paired with a smartphone, using a dedicated app.
Other features include automatic time adjustment to the local zone when crossing zones. There’s no need for the user to operate the buttons, the watch updates by itself. These features make the MTG-B2000 models ideal shock-resistant watches for travellers.
