Casio has unveiled a fresh take on the classic G-Shock MT-G watch, and it's thinner and lighter than ever. The new G-Shock MTG-B3000 has a totally upgraded case, in addition to another carbon Core Guard structure to protect the internal components from drops and knocks.
Much like the new Garmin Fenix 7 series, the features an intense plastic case with a metal exterior. However, while Garmin has opted for a glass fiber reinforced polymer, Casio has chosen a carbon fiber composite that's more costly, yet lighter and with greater elasticity.
The new G-Shock has a completely new case back. This is pressed, cut, and polished from a single piece of stainless steel, with raised sides forming the lugs that secure the band. It also forms guards that protect the watch's buttons from accidental presses and damage – something that would normally have to be made from separate pieces of metal.To make this watch conceivable, Casio fostered the slimmest module yet for a G-Shock solar chronograph. It also has an all-new Dual Core Guard structure, that offers similar protection yet in a sleeker package.
