Recently, Casio released the MT-G B2000 to build its G-Shock, building out its already impressive Japanese watch collection further. With upgraded features that bolster the watch’s toughness and resilience, the new edition lives up to the G-Shock name. The MT-G B2000 is a durable timepiece built to withstand a beating without affecting precision or longevity.
The Tough Build
The new addition to the G-Shock collection, the MT-G B2000, sports a Dual-Core Guard. It is composed of an interior carbon fiber reinforced resin monocoque case to protect the inner workings from impact and a stainless steel metal cargo frame connected to the bezel surrounding the inner monocoque resin case. The complete metal case offers a tough outer shell to protect from external impact. And with the Triple G Resist protection safeguarding the accuracy of the timepiece from dropping shocks, centrifugal gravity, and vibrations, the watch will keep you on point.
The new G-Shock MT-G models have a 12-sided polygonal bezel that reminds G-Shock enthusiasts of older models with the same polygonal dials. The bezel is separate from the case. The separation allows different metallic color expressions and a full metal case for aesthetics rather than seeing underlying snippets of resin.
Of the three models available, the MTG-B2000B has a soft urethane band, while the MTG-B2000BD and MTG-B2000D models have a layered band composed of hollowed-out metal links on the exterior and a fine resin filler on the underside. This duo reduces the weight by 15% from the previous MTG-B1000.
The composite throughout the watch allows for a lightweight timepiece without sacrificing toughness and rigidity.
The G-Shock MT-G B2000 Watch Dial
Under the sapphire glass, which has an inner anti-reflective coating, is a matte black dial with accents that match the bezel. Three subdials — a stopwatch and countdown timer, alarm, and a calendar — fit snugly in the center of the dial.
The stopwatch and countdown timer max out at 24-hours. An aperture between the four and five o’clock hour markers shows the date as the calendar subdial marks the week’s day. When the darkness rolls in, an LED super-illuminator lights up the dial to keep you going even after sunset.
G-Shock Watch Features and Connectivity
Standout features outside of the protective Dual-Core Guard include the Tough Solar Power Source, Triple G-Resist protection, automatic time adjustment using Multi-Band 6 radio waves, 200-meter water resistance, and dual time zones. Dual-coil motors power the dials.
With the G-Shock Connected App linked to the watch via Bluetooth, it offers users clock status display (time reception status, solar charging status, internal data update history), self-check automatic diagnosis, automatic time adjustment, world time city setting, home time, and world time display replacement, timer, and alarm setting, and phone finder.
If you’re a frequent traveler, the automatic tie adjustment is a dream. Once you cross a time-zone, as long as your phone and watch are connected, the watch will pick up on radio frequencies and adjust the time appropriately.
The Price Tag
Depending on the specific model of the MT-G B2000, the G-Shock watch will run you between $1,051 and $1,195. The Japanese watch is built to last and withstand blows to the case without affecting the accuracy. Your lifestyle shouldn’t dictate whether or not your watch is correct; with the G-Shock MT-G B2000, you’ll never have to worry.
