G-SHOCK EXPANDS LUXURY MT-G SERIES WITH NEW MULTI-LAYER CARBON FRAME AND LIGHTWEIGHT DESIGN
New Carbon Fiber Technology Delivers a Timepiece Structure About 77% Lighter than Previous MT-G Model


DOVER, NJ, noviembre 9, 2021— Today, Casio introduces the latest addition to its premium G-SHOCK MT-G series with the launch of the MTGB2000YBD1. The new model features a multi-layered carbon bezel frame, an advanced take on G-SHOCK’S latest Dual Core Guard Structure of a carbon monocoque case and metal frame. Now with the MTGB2000YBD1, the metal frame is replaced with a laminated carbon frame for improved strength to weight ratio, all in a sleek, black case with bright red accents.


The new multi-layered carbon bezel frame is formed by layering and heat-pressing carbon and glass fiber sheets to make a plate-shaped base material, which is then cut and molded to the desired shape, delivering a bezel frame that is 77% lighter than the stainless-steel frame used in previous models. The model also features a layered-composite band made from both metal and fine resin parts to offer a better fit while retaining the look and luster of metal.


For added strength, the top carbon layer of the bezel frame wraps around the sides of the watch and cylindrical carbon sheets are wrapped around the lugs used to connect the band. A polygonal crown complements the bezel frame design while bi-color layers and dial accents in G-SHOCK’s red add to the luxurious look and feel of the new model.


The MTGB2000YBD1 features G-SHOCK’S premium technical features, including Bluetooth® that allows the watch to be connected to a smartphone via the G-SHOCK Connected app, MULTIBAND 6 Atomic Timekeeping, Tough Solar Power, a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, Super Illuminator high-brightness LED, and more.


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

  • Resistencia al impacto
  • Resistente al agua a 200 m
  • BLE (Bluetooth Low-Energy) Time Sync
  • LED (Super LED)
  • World Time (27 Time Zones)
  • Alarma diaria

  • 1 Sec Countdown Timer (24Hr)

Acerca de G-SHOCK
El reloj G-SHOCK de Casio, resistente a golpes, es sinónimo de dureza, se creó a partir del sueño del desarrollador, el señor 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.
