Casio launches 3 new timepieces of the G-SHOCK brand of shock-resistant watches featuring one of the slimmest designs to date that is comfortable and fit for everyday wear.
The three new models are MTG-B3000, GST-B500 in the metal timepiece line and GA-B2100 in the iconic octagonal 2100 series.
The MTG-B3000, which boasts an innovative slim module and shock-resistant construction in a rugged and compact form, is an even more streamlined addition to the MT-G line of timepieces, all of which feature a construction that makes the most of the properties of both metal and resin.
The MTG-B3000 pairs an innovative slim module and shock-resistant structure, together with high-density mounting technology and an even more advanced Dual Core Guard structure to achieve a streamlined shock-resistant watch with case that is more than 2mm slimmer than the previous model (MTG-B1000). The newly developed guard structure protects the module with a carbon-reinforced resin case and encloses the exterior with metal components, retaining the metal look and texture while reducing the weight. Hence, all of these innovative designs and technologies result in a metal timepiece with a mere 12.1mm case that is extremely comfortable to wear.
When it comes to function, the MTG-B3000 features radio-controlled calibration and Smartphone Link connectivity via Bluetooth®. The watch connects with the dedicated CASIO WATCHES smartphone app to automatically adjust to the correct time. It also comes equipped with a solar charging system and high-brightness LED light for practicality and convenience.
Moving on to the addition of GST-B500, which is the slimmest and lightest in the G-STEEL line of metal timepiece. The effortlessly stylish watch features a redesigned bezel that makes for a more compact size and enhanced metallic texture, whilst maintaining strength and lightness at a slim profile of just 12.8 mm. and a light weight of just 143 g.
The new G-STEEL watch is equipped with Carbon Core Guard structure, both strong and light, as well as G-SHOCK’s signature shock-resistant structure that protects the module, with a carbon fibre-reinforced resin case offering strength, lightness, and excellent wear resistance. The GST-B500 is equipped with a Super Illuminator (high-brightness double LED light) for maintaining watch readability in the dark, as well as other functions such as the solar-powered timekeeping with Bluetooth® for enhanced accuracy and reliability.
This new lineup consists of three silver metal models with dials of different designs and two models with black IP and gold IP finishes. The designs of these models have been created to match a wide range of tastes and styles.
Finally, we have the five new GA-B2100 watches, that feature a slim module with optimized component and a Carbon Core Guard structure. The new GA-B2100 watches are the first in the iconic octagonal 2100 line to be equipped with Smartphone Link connectivity via Bluetooth® and solar charging capabilities. Released in 2019, the base-model GA-2100 was a contemporary interpretation of the very first G-SHOCK, the DW-5000C. Its simple, stylish design proved popular around the world, especially among younger consumers.
With Bluetooth® connectivity and a solar charging system, the new GA-B2100 shock-resistant watches add a whole new level of convenience. Smartphone pairing via Bluetooth® delivers accurate timekeeping, whilst the Tough Solar charging system effectively converts light from fluorescent lamps and other sources to power the watch, eliminating the need to regularly replace the battery.
The new GA-B2100 is available in five colors, represented in the classic colors first used in the G-SHOCK 5600 line with reproductions of the yellow, green, and blue of the DW-5600C-9BV, DW-5600B-3V and DW-5600B-2V. There are also two black options — a black and gray model in the same color scheme as the DW-5600C-1V from the original 5600 series, as well as an all-black model.
