Introducing the MT-G Diffuse Nebula, the Latest Colorful Creation from G-SHOCK

According to NASA, a nebula is a giant cloud of dust and gas in space. Some nebulae come from the gas and dust thrown out by the explosion of a dying star, such as a supernova. Other nebulae are regions where new stars are beginning to form. For this reason, some nebulae are called “star nurseries”, and from Casio’s own nursery comes a brand-new MT-G model inspired by this very phenomenon. The Diffuse Nebula MTGB3000DN1A is their latest high end creation, combining metal materials with resin in a colorful package with all the durability you would expect in any G-SHOCK.

The Diffuse Nebula MT-G displays a mesmerizing array of colors. From the intense blue and purple of the ion-plated stainless-steel bezel and multi-colored dial components, to the striking rose gold crown and screws. The attention to detail extends beyond the case, as the soft urethane band is a mixed color rather than a single tone, and the buckle and keeper are both purple IP coated. 


But this watch is not just about looks – it’s still very much a G-SHOCK. It features a Dual Core Guard structure that protects its module in a carbon fiber reinforced shell and encloses the exterior in metal components. In this structure, the case back incorporates integrated lugs, securing the band and guarding the crown and buttons found along the case flank. All of this helps reduce the overall thickness and achieves a more compact, slimmer profile, which measures a svelte 12.1mm from the bottom of the case back to the top of the bezel. Its construction includes a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating.

The Diffuse Nebula MT-G is equipped with all the usual G-SHOCK technological refinements, including connection to your phone via Bluetooth, LED lighting, and all of the alarms, timers, and stopwatch functionality you could possibly need. This watch also has what they call Triple G Resist, which means it is shock resistant, centrifugal force resistant, vibration resistant, and it is 200 meter water-resistant. Finally, did I mention that it is fueled by light? Tough Solar Power means no pesky battery changes for this one.

The MTGB3000DN1A is available at a retail price of $1,250 through select G-SHOCK retailers. G-SHOCK
