The updated carbon fiber design makes this premium $1,200 G-SHOCK 77% lighter than before.
Casio has dropped the latest addition to its luxe G-SHOCK MT-G series with the launch of the MTGB2000YBD1 timepiece. The new premium model boasts a multi-layered carbon bezel frame and an advanced take on the brand’s carbon monocoque case and metal frame.
The metal frame has been upgraded with a laminated carbon frame for improved strength to weight ratio and is packaged in a sleek, black case with bright red accents.
More on the construction of G-SHOCK’s upgraded carbon fiber watch here:
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.
To make the latest G-SHOCK even more rugged than before, a 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 red add to the elevated look and feel of the new model. The new timepiece also comes equipped with G-SHOCK’s signature technical features including:
- Shock Resistance
- 200M Water Resistance
- BLE (Bluetooth Low-Energy) Time Sync
- LED (Super LED)
- World Time (27 TZ)
- Daily Alarm
- 1 Sec. Stopwatch (24Hr)
- 1 Sec Countdown Timer (24Hr)

The MTGB2000YBD1 retails for $1,200 and will be available for purchase beginning in mid-November at select G-SHOCK retailers and gshock.com.
