Casio announced new MT-G with new design featuring multi-layer carbon

Casio and G-SHOCK fans alert! Casio announced new MT-G with new design featuring multi-layer carbon! The latest additions to the G-SHOCK line-up of shock-resistant watches, the new MTG-B2000YBD and MTG-B2000XD are part of the MT-G line of watches that feature a construction that makes the most of the properties of both metal and resin, along with a bezel component made of multi-layer carbon.

The new G-SHOCK MTG-B2000YBD and MTG-B2000XD are based on the MTG-B2000 model, which features a Dual Core Guard structure that gives added strength while highlighting the appeal of the materials. The new G-SHOCK watches employ a newly developed bezel frame, the top is made of carbon materials, all these create a beautiful exterior design while also reducing weight.

For the MTG-B2000YBD, this new watch has a bezel frame at its sides that is formed by layering and machining multiple carbon and fibre glass sheets. The new bezel frame is 77% lighter than the stainless steel one used in the MTG-B2000. The top-layer carbon sheet is wrapped around the side, and cylindrical carbon sheets are wrapped around the lugs for enhanced durability. A polygonal crown complements the bezel design. Fibre glass layers in G-SHOCK red provide a stylish accent around the sides of the case, with red indicators accenting the watch face.

MTG-B2000XD-1ADR

As for the MTG-B2000XD, the bezel top has a complex shape made by using advanced pressing and cutting processes on the multilayer carbon material. The side view of the bezel reveals fibre glass layers in an all-new original green, giving the watch a sporty and refined look.
