G-SHOCK Upgrades Luxury MT-G Series With New Multi-Layered Carbon Frame and Lightweight Design

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)
  • Full Auto Calendar

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