COMBINING REGIDITY, COMPACT FORM AND LIGHTNESS

We continue to improve our original MT-G Dual Core Guard structure, now protecting the module with a carbon-reinforced resin case and enclosing the exterior with metal components. At the heart of the new structure is the unique case back, a solid piece of intricately shaped stainless steel. We give it high rigidity using integrated moulding to create a single form with raised sides, which serves as the lugs to secure the band and as the guards for crown and buttons.

INTRICATE METAL EXTERIOR FOR TOTALLY UNIQUE BEAUTY

We apply repeated processes of pressing, cutting, and polishing to make a stainless steel case back that is smooth on the wrist but protrudes upward in an intricate, 3D form.
Its configuration interlocks with the top bezel, with uniquely shaped screws joining the two.
With its stunning Sallaz-polished surfaces and intricate beauty of form, this timepiece shows off the profound look of the metal material itself, while also achieving a slim profile.

ADVANCED FUNCTIONALITY IN DOWNSIZED FORM

While maintaining shock resistance, we optimised the circuit board layout by using smaller, slimmer parts and integrating electronic componentry with high-density mounting technology.
This multi-hand chronograph is equipped with Smartphone Link and solar-powered radio control, but with a module 1.45 mm slimmer than the MTG-B1000.
That makes the watch more than 2 mm slimmer, at just 12.1 mm.

ONE-TOUCH EXCHANGE FOR EASY SWAPPING

Simply press buttons located on both sides of the lugs to quickly and easily swap out the band without special tools. Fun customisation options are provided with two interchangeable bands: a layered-composite band made of hollow metal segments encasing fine resin parts, and a soft urethane band with a light, comfortable fit.

BLACK ACCENTED WITH DISTINCTIVE AND COLOURFUL IP

Ion plating (IP) in options of red or green provides vibrant accents to the bold black base colour. The MTG-B3000B features a monochrome black and grey appearance.

SUPER ILLUMINATOR

Super Illuminator (high-brightness LED light) for maintaining watch readability in the dark

SOLAR POWERED

Solar-powered timekeeping with Bluetooth® and radio control for enhanced accuracy and reliability

SAPPHIRE CRYSTAL

Scratch-resistant, highly transparent sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating on the inside surface

What we like in MTG-B3000 *comments by experts with 10 years experience in writing about Casio watches
Slim module (innovative designs and technologies result in a metal timepiece with a mere 12.1mm case that is extremely comfortable to wear)
Dual Core Guard structure (the newly developed guard structure protects the module with a carbon-reinforced resin case and encloses the exterior with metal components)
Radio-controlled Watch; Multi band 6 (additional way for time sync. This watch receives time calibration radio signals that keep the displayed time accurate)
Solar-powered (CASIO’s original solar-charging system converts not only sunlight but also light from fluorescent lamps and other sources into power)
Sapphire crystal (Scratch-resistant, highly transparent)
CASIO WATCH App (you may manage all watch settings through your phone)
Mobile link (Wireless linking using Bluetooth(R)) (for time sync with your phone data)
200-meter water resistance (good for swimming but not for deep diving)

Official Casio Description. With its even more advanced Dual-Core Guard structure, the MTG-B3000 protects the module in a carbon-reinforced resin case and encloses the exterior in metal components. Repeated pressing, cutting, and polishing builds the stainless steel case back upward into an intricate 3D form. The case back also serves as the lugs to secure the band and as the guards for crown and buttons, for a completely new structure. Using high-density mounting technology, we developed a new slimmer, multi-function module. All of these innovative designs and technologies created a much thinner watch, measuring just 12.1 mm from bezel to case back.

MT-G innovation extends even to the band. All-new one-touch exchange structure eliminates the need for special tools. Simply press the buttons located on either side of the lug to quickly and easily swap out the band.

High-transparency sapphire crystal paired with the delicate moulding and vapour deposition of Yamagata Casio’s nano-processing technology adds the final touch of sophistication and quality.

The MTG-B3000BD features a layered composite band made of hollow stainless steel segments encasing fine resin parts for a lighter weight band. Ion-plated metal components bring a touch of fresh colour to the overall chic black design.

This detailed texture. The state-of-the-art Multi-guard Structure incorporates flat springs and silicone buffers to the multi-component bezel, ensuring outstanding shock absorption to protect the dedicated MR-G module with a gold-plated retainer plate.
