Casio Computer Co., Ltd. announced today the latest additions to its G-SHOCK line of shock-resistant watches. The new MTG-B2000 models are part of the MT-G series of watches, which are known for a construction that makes the most of the properties of both metal and resin. The MTG-B2000 features a new innovation--the Dual Core Guard structure--which accentuates the beauty and feel of metal while retaining a mid-sized case.

The new MTG-B2000 watches further advance the Metal Core Guard Structure used in previous MT-G series watches by employing a new Dual Core Guard Structure that incorporates a carbon fiber-reinforced resin case, leveraging the light weight and rigidity of carbon fiber. The watch features a dual structure with a carbon monocoque case that seamlessly integrates the case and case back. This is surrounded by metal frame, giving the watch a refined metal look when viewed straight on and from the sides. This new structure achieved a watch with more visible metal while retaining the popular mid-sized case and weight that users found to be so wearable in the MTG-B1000 released in 2018. The MTG-B2000 watches also feature Triple G Resist to resist dropping shocks, centrifugal gravity, and vibration, ensuring toughness.

The MTG-B2000BD and MTG-B2000D models both come with a new layered-composite band made with a higher proportion of resin, paired with metal parts. They are both about 15% lighter than the predecessor model.* The MTG-B2000B comes with a soft urethane band for enhanced wearability and optimum fit, which also accentuates the bold impression of the watch.

* MTG-B1000D (released in 2018)

These new watches are the first in the MT-G series to be equipped with three dual coil motors, for swift operation of the hands. In addition to receiving radio wave time-calibration signals, the watch automatically adjusts the time when paired with a smartphone using a dedicated app. Other outstanding features include automatic time adjustment to the local time zone when crossing zones without any need for the user to operate the buttons. These features make the MTG-B2000 models ideal shock-resistant watches in a business setting.

stand outs for me - theyre keeping the slightly smaller size, theyve shaved some weight while still keeping the metal look, theyve ditched the manhole cover bezel and the biggest thing...A FOURTH BUTTON!!! 馃槻馃槀 always felt a bit ripped off on my mtgs and mrgg with that blank spot. kind of like buying the entry level model car and wondering what would fill the space on the higher model 馃槄

I really dislike how they reconfigured the sub dials. I sold my MTG-S1000D-1A4JF because of the dial lay out, but I might dislike the new one more because of that weird day/function wheel. The MTG-B1000D-1A4JF nailed the sub dial lay out and size in my opinion, although I should say I am glad they continued to keep the case size down with the new ones and the bezel is interesting.

Interesting design. Love the contrasting octagonal bezel. Like the size. Wish the red and blue bezels were available with plain stainless steel. Will have to let the dial layout sink in a bit. At first glance it seems a little more MRG-ish while keeping a somewhat distinct MTG identity. At the price, these are not an impulse buy,

Can someone explain to me why Casio does these metal/resin bracelets on the MTGs? What are the advantages of having the resin on the inside of the bracelet? Just seems to me like it makes it more expensive and less durable. Resin doesn't last forever, metal does.

Couple of deal-breakers for me:
1. No world time city bezel to set time
2. No battery level indicator

Having said that, it's highly possible that i'll be poisoned into buying one in the (perhaps) distant future. :p

It is also not thinner than the previous ones according to g central. I have a mixed feelings about them too.

I like it and think we should reserve final judgement until we see real world photos. The smaller, thinner profile is a big plus, as MTGs have always been oversized, which is fine for resin but another story with these steel beasts. I am surprised though that they've updated this line so soon.

I鈥檓 reading g central

The dimensions are 55.1 x 51 x 15.9 millimeters, compared to 55.8 x 51.7 x 14.4 for the MTG-B1000.
So it is 1.5 mm thicker than B1000. If that is true that is a no go for me. My MTG B1000 is the thickest metal watch I own right now.

I was thinking mainly of the pre B1000 MT-Gs, which were massive. I find the B1000 to be very wearable.

Why does this look like an edifice

I thought the exact same thing. Those buttons...

Yeah, older MTGs, even though I like their finishing a just too big to me. I am waiting for a g-shock that it both metal and thinner than B1000. So far only full metal squares satisfy that criteria.
