G-SHOCK has launched the newest additions to its line of premium MT-G timepieces with the release of the MTGB3000 series.
Made of stainless steel, fine resin, and carbon, the new models boast an innovative, ultra-slim module with an updated Dual Core Guard Structure of carbon and metal. The updated construction creates a more streamlined timepiece that is 12.1 mm thin, over 2mm slimmer than previous MTGB1000 models.
To maintain the slim profile and improved shock-resistance of the new models, an advanced version of the Dual Core Guard structure was created. The new guard structure protects the module with a carbon-reinforced resin case and encloses the exterior of the watch with metal components. This combination of metal and fine resin allows for the timepiece to retain its metal look and texture while reducing the weight and providing additional protection for the model with a 3D case back featuring raised sides.
The new models showcase a range of colourful 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 grey 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 case back, the metal undergoes repeated processes of pressing, cutting, and polishing. The raised sides of the case protect the crown and buttons and serve as the lugs to secure the band. The new models also make use of a new gear-hold design allowing for a thinner and more durable construction. In addition, each of the new models feature a new exchangeable band structure that allows the band to be removed with a simple pinch to the lug.
The new MTGB3000 series boasts premium G-SHOCK technical features including Bluetooth® functionality that allows the watch to be connected to a smartphone via the CASIO Watches app, Multi-Band 6 Atomic Timekeeping, Tough Solar Charging, Super LED illumination and more.
As part of the release, G-SHOCK has unveiled an exclusive collection page taking consumers through the features, which can be viewed HERE.
