This week, Casio announced three new versions of its upscale G-Shock metallic MT-G collection.
Crafted from stainless steel, fine resin, and carbon, the MTGB3000 series watches weigh 111 grams on a rubber strap or 148 grams on a steel bracelet, measuring 50.9 mm x 12.1 mm (51.9 mm lug-to-lug) — and are more than 2 mm slimmer than the discontinued MTGB1000 series.
A newly developed slim module and advanced Dual Guard structure that combines steel for the outer case, and carbon-reinforced resin protecting the module on the inner part of the case allowed Casio designers to reduce the total case thickness — and the total weight — while maintaining the robustness required for any watch to carry the G-Shock moniker.
“The new models showcase a range of colorful accents on their black bands, including deep red accents on the face and layered composite band of the MTGB3000BD1A; green accents on the face and layered composite band of the MTGB3000BD12; and gray accents on the face and soft urethane band of the MTGB3000B-1A, allowing each to maintain a sleek, yet fashion-forward look.
To create the MTG-B3000’s stainless steel caseback, the metal undergoes repeated processes of pressing, cutting, and polishing.
Casio’s advanced MTGB3000 Series features Bluetooth connectivity and time sync via the Casio Watches app, as well as Multi-Band 6 Atomic Timekeeping as a redundant backup, solar-powered charging, Super LED illumination, 200 meters of water resistance, Triple G Shock resistance, a daily alarm, a 24-hour stopwatch, a 24-hour timer, world time functionality (27 time zones), a full auto-calendar, is protected by a premium sapphire crystal and has an easy change bracelet/strap system.
The MTGB3000B-1A will retail for $950, while the MTGB3000BD1A and MTGB3000BD12 will retail for $1,050 each. All three models will be available this May at select retailers and GShock.com.
