Casio G-Shock MTG-B1000 Watches

About the Watch in short. Representative of the latest generation G-Shock MTG with a reduced body and a rethought shock and drop protection system. The bezel and the back cover are connected by a special round frame, and between all layers of metal there are polyurethane inserts for even greater impact resistance. Designers slightly reduced the dial, but this did not affect its readability – all the necessary elements are clearly visible in any conditions. The watch module is surrounded by a reinforced polyurethane gasket reinforced with carbon fiber. Unlike the MTG-G1000, this is not a composite bracelet, but a polyurethane strap – practical, stylish and comfortable. The strap mount design has become even more reliable thanks to a successful combination of many small parts. The time is automatically adjusted by radio waves or using a Bluetooth connection with a smartphone. Other features of the MTG-B1000 include solar power, a smart Smart Access head for quick access to watch functionality, a stopwatch, timer, alarm clock, dual time on the dial and powerful backlight.

*some images are about G-Shock 5000/5600 cases, but the technology, approaches, concepts and philosophy remains the same for the whole G-Shock Model Range

Shock-resistant structure. A hollow case structure protecting the module from external shocks, cushioning of key parts inside the module, cushioning protection from direct shocks by a unique case-and-bezel form, and an all-directional guard structure to mitigate impacts are all combined in a structure built to resist dropping shocks.

Centrifugal gravity resistance test. Watch hands that are required to move in an environment of strong centrifugal gravity are liable to rotate due to their own weight, which may cause breakage. We therefore calculated the weight balance of each hand with precision and arranged It optimally. The result is stable hand movement, even under conditions of strong gravitational pull.

Vibration-resistant structure. αGEL® (Alpha GEL)* is packed around the module as an insulator to absorb vibrations and prevent damage and malfunctions resulting from violent vibrations. Aluminum band washers and O-rings are inserted to prevent the screws that connect the band to the case from loosening due to vibrations.

Solar Power. None-Stop – A solar panel converts even weak illumination from fluorescent lighting into electric power. A rechargeable battery with a large power storage capacity supports stable operation of various functions with high electricity consumption. You never have to worry about the battery running down because it’s a solar battery. Casio watches with solar technology, receive thermal and electrical energy that recharges the watch batteries through solar panels on the face of the watch.

MultiBand 6. Terrestrial radio wave reception from 6 transmission stations worldwide. Automatic time correction available in Japan, North America, UK, Europe and China.
— Reception is possible even when surrounded by buildings.
— Signals are received during the night to keep the displayed time exact. — Reception is possible with less than normal power consumption.

Smart Access. This analog control system combines Multi Mission Drive, which assigns multiple functions to individual hands, with an electronic crown switch. World Time city selection is conducted with simple crown operation, providing quick access to the times in the world’s major cities.

Multi-motor construction. Smooth switching of the various displays is achieved by a drive mechanism including an optimized number of motors. Electronic Crown Switch. Smart Access makes it easy to operate CASIO’s multi-function watches. Simply pulling out and rotating the crown provides intuitive control over world time city selection and various other functions.

Metal moulding. The moulds employed for resin watch parts, from gears and other precision parts to novel moulded external parts, are originally fabricated at Yamagata CASIO. Besides undergoing many automated manufacturing processes, they are hand-polished to give them a precision finish.

Module manufacture. A single production line at Yamagata CASIO can handle assembly of as many as 13 types of movements, and the ability to perform speedy small-lot production of many products is among its strengths. Suitable for production of a diverse variety of watches, from watches with three hands to chronographs with multiple hands, the lines have the capacity to create an abundant lineup that enables customers to select a watch to suit their style.

Parts manufacture. Several microscopically sized rigid resin gears are installed in each movement. Minute teeth around the gears’ perimeters mesh with the teeth of other gears neither too gently nor too strongly to assure smooth movement. At Yamagata CASIO, these minute parts are made using machining technologies with 1/1000 mm precision to assure more accurate gear movement.

Quality assurance. Conducting everything from mould design and production to parts moulding, circuit board mounting and assembly in a highly integrated production system, Yamagata CASIO achieves high-quality product manufacturing. An inspection system making free use of leading-edge sensing technologies to conduct precision examinations of parts quality by sensor is implemented in every process. Only products that satisfy strict standards are sent out into the world.

G-Shock Connected App. This is the basic application for connecting and communicating with a Bluetooth(R) v4.0 enabled CASIO watch.
Pairing your watch with a smartphone enables use of a variety of different Mobile Link functions that greatly enhance the smartphone experience.
The G-SHOCK Connected app also simplifies certain watch operations by letting you perform them on your phone screen.

Official Marketing Focus from Casio

These new MTG-B1000 models incorporate a new shock-resistant structure, a smaller case size, and improved fit to the wrist to create a selection of new additions to the MT-G lineup of TRIPLE G RESIST metal-and-resin combination models.
The new shock resistant structure of these models is the result of the G-SHOCK MT-G constant pursuit of improved strength and durability. A New Core Guard structure integrates the lugs and pipes that connect the band into single pieces, creating a wall that isolates the watch’s module from impact. The resin of the center case is also reinforced with carbon fibers, which further enhances module protection, while reducing overall weight.
These watches come with a new Connected Engine module for improved timekeeping accuracy. A Bluetooth® communication function makes it possible to connect with a smartphone running the G-SHOCK Connected* app and obtain accurate time information from an on-line time server.
