Bolder Use of Metal While Retaining a Popular Mid-Sized Case
SINGAPORE, 20 NOVEMBER 2020 — After the successful launch of the MTG-B1000 back in 2018, Casio Computer Co. Ltd. will be rolling out the new and improved MTG-B2000 on 30 November 2020. Providing a functionally tough yet lightweight timepiece, the MTG-B2000 watches employ a new Dual Core Guard structure that features a carbon fiber-reinforced resin case and a carbon monocoque construction.
This new structure produced a watch with more visible metal while retaining the popular mid-sized case and weight that users found to be so wearable in the predecessor, MTG-B1000. To make things sweeter, the MTG-B2000BD (Red bezel) and MTG-B2000D (Black bezel) models both come with a new layered-composite band made with a higher proportion of resin, paired with metal parts, making them 15% lighter than the predecessor model. The MTG-B2000B (Blue bezel) comes with a soft urethane band for a more comfortable fit. The MTG-B2000 watches also feature Triple G-Resist technology to resist dropping shocks, centrifugal gravity, and vibration.
Users with a hectic lifestyle would be glad to know that these new watches are the first in the MT-G series to be equipped with three dual coil motors for smooth operation of the watch hands. Besides automatically adjusting to a local time zone without any need for the user to operate the buttons, the watch’s time can also be adjusted via radio wave calibration signals and a dedicated app via a smartphone.
The watch will be available for purchase from 30 November at all G-SHOCK stores and https://www.g-shock.sg/ at the following prices:
