G-SHOCK Expands MUDMASTER Series with Innovative Thinner Forged Carbon Models



New Slim GWG2000 Models Feature Forged Carbon Bezels for Added Durability in a Lightweight Case

DOVER, NJ, octubre 20, 2021— Today, Casio launches the latest additions to its G-SHOCK Master of G line-up of shock-resistant timepieces. Designed for use in the most extreme conditions, the three new MUDMASTER GWG2000 timepieces are engineered for those who work in extreme environments scattered with rubble, dirt, and debris. The latest models are the thinnest models in the series’ history measuring in at 16.1mm, 1.9mm thinner than its predecessor.

Utilizing a new forged carbon bezel and a carbon core guard structure case, the GWG2000 lineup is designed with increased durability in stronger and lighter cases. The forged carbon bezels are formed by kneading finely crushed carbon fiber into resin and then heat-pressing the resin into a mold. This process makes it possible to produce strong and lightweight parts with complex shapes to reinforce the MUDMASTER’s structure.

The new timepieces maintain the MUDMASTER’s signature dust and mud-proof structure with a new mud-resistant button structure that combines a stainless-steel button pipe and a silicon buffer to add toughness that will withstand long-term use.

In addition to a textured band that resembles the non-slip grip of heavy machinery and knurled buttons for improved operation, the three new timepieces are offered in unique and appealing colorways that are both practical and powerful. The GWG2000-1A1 sports a black resin band with a stainless-steel bezel, while the GWG2000-1A3 has an olive-green resin band with a stainless-steel bezel, and the GWG2000-1A5 features a khaki colored resin band with a black stainless-steel bezel.

Function-wise, these models are equipped with Tough Solar, Multi-Band 6 atomic timekeeping, and triple sensor technology for measurement of bearing information, barometric pressure and altitude, and temperature. Additional features were incorporated to enhance readability, including large numeral hour markers, arrow-shaped extra-thick hands, double LED light illumination, and a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.

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

Each new timepiece also comes equipped with G-SHOCK’s technical features including:
  • Resistencia al impacto
  • Resistente al agua a 200 m
  • Full Auto LED (Dual)
  • Daily Alarms
  • Cronómetro 1/100 segundos
  • 1/1th Sec. Timer (60m)
  • Calendario completamente automático
  • World Time (29TZ, 29Cities+UTC)

The new MUDMASTER series, GWG2000, will retail for $800 and be available for purchase in November at select G-SHOCK retailers, the G-SHOCK Soho Store and gshock.com.

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.
