G-Shock MT-G Series Gets Metallic with New Carbon Fiber Watches
Bulking up the Metal Core Guard Structure used in previous MT-G models, G-SHOCK–which seems to debut a new watch every week– has imbued its latest timepiece with a Dual Core Guard structure that incorporates a carbon fiber-reinforced resin case, designed to leverage both the lightness and superior strength of carbon fiber.
The carbon monocoque case is surrounded by a metal frame, giving the watch a refined metallic look.
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.
The MTGB2000B-1A2 features a black dial with blue accents, and a complementary blue bezel with a soft urethane band for 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.
The watches 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 adjust the time when paired with a smartphone using the G-SHOCK Connected App.
Both models also come equipped with G-SHOCK technology including:
