The all-new G-Shock Mudmaster GWG-2000 features forged carbon parts and a case made of carbon fiber-reinforced resin. Forged carbon, which is made of carbon fiber particles mixed with resin and pressed at high heat and pressure, is lighter and has a higher tensile strength than stainless steel. The unique black and gray surface pattern of the forged carbon is visible on various parts of the watch, including the bezel bumpers, front button guard, and lugs. The new materials and structure allow the GWG-2000 to be 1.9 millimeters thinner and 13 grams lighter than the GWG-1000.
Like the previous Mudmaster GWG-1000, the GWG-2000 is resistant to mud and dust and features Tough Solar power, Multi-Band 6 automatic radio time syncing, and the Triple Sensor (pressure: altimeter-barometer, compass, thermometer). The watch has newly designed Mud Resist buttons, with stainless steel button pipes and an internal silicone buffer for improved mud resistance. Stylistically, the GWG-2000 is not much of a departure from the GWG-1000, with a similar dial layout and dimensions of 61.2 x 54.4 x 16.1 millimeters (versus 59.5 x 56.1 x 18 mm for the GWG-1000). Another new element is what appears to be a stainless steel bezel. According to the case back, the GWG-2000 is a Carbon Core Guard model and has a sapphire crystal.
Other features include shock resistance, 200-meter water resistance, world time, 1/100-second stopwatch (24 hours max with elapsed, split, 1st and 2nd place times), countdown timer (1 second units, 60 minutes max), 5 daily alarms, hand shift function, battery level indicator, and full auto double LED light with 1.5 or 3 second afterglow.
