Press release with commentary in italics. MTG-B3000CXD is priced at SGD 1,599.

The MTG-B3000CXD is a special edition watch released by G-SHOCK to commemorate the arrival of the Chinese Year of the Dragon in 2024. The watch is a fusion of metal and resin materials. The watch features laser engravings, golden IP coatings, and three-dimensional dragon scale designs, resulting in a magnificent golden-armored dragon aesthetic. The dragon pattern engraved on the watch’s back is the creation of Han Tianheng, a contemporary Chinese seal cutting artist and vice president of the esteemed Xiling Seal Society.

The watch is a well crafted premium G-SHOCK model that is build for durability but with more bells and whistles to its styling. The dragon scale design is a nice touch which looks more uniform compared to the more organic hand-hammered hammer tone (which is also 6x more expensive). The watch’s slim module and dual-core guard structure make it comfortable to wear and durable. The watch’s solar-powered feature reduces the need for battery changes while its bluetooth capability makes adjustments via an app much easier than pushing quartz buttons. It is however, on an extra large case which may be a challenge for some with smaller wrists.

Dragon Inspired Design

The bezel and band loop are meticulously etched, and laser machined to emulate the intricate scales of a dragon. The finish is then adorned with a luxurious gold-colored ion-plated (IP) coating, creating a stunning visual impact. The dial of the watch features a scale pattern, adding an extra layer of sophistication. On the back cover of the MTG-B3000CXD, a powerful image of a rising dragon is engraved, symbolizing strength, power, and good fortune.

Dual-Core Guard Structure

The MTG-B3000CXD boasts a dual-core guard structure that combines a carbon fiber-reinforced resin case with metal parts, ensuring robust protection for the watch. The stainless-steel back cover is intricately pressed, cut, and polished into a complex three-dimensional configuration.

Innovative Slim Design

The unique design allows the lugs securing the bands, crown, and button guards to be seamlessly incorporated into the back cover, resulting in a sleek and integrated profile. The thin multi-function module of the MTG-B3000CXD enables a reduced case thickness of just 12.1mm (back cover to bezel), providing both style and comfort.

Advanced Functionality

The watch features Bluetooth® connectivity, allowing it to sync with the CASIO WATCHES app on smartphones for accurate time information. Additional practical features include MULTIBAND 6, Tough Solar technology, and high-brightness LED light illumination.

This limited edition MTG-B3000CXD combines the artistry of design with cutting-edge technology, making it a must-have for watch enthusiasts and collectors alike.
