The G-SHOCK MTGB3000DN-1A ‘Diffuse Nebula’ Goes into Hyperdrive

The starry-eyed explorers at G-SHOCK have been helping astronauts traverse outer space ever since NASA’s Shuttle Era, with the battle-hardened DW5600 a particular favourite for rocket riders. In fact, G-SHOCK have even collaborated with the aeronautics and space agency several times, most recently in 2023 for a planet-hopping DW6900. While the latest intergalactic timepiece isn’t an official collaboration, the MTGB3000DN-1A ‘Diffuse Nebula’ is chock-full of cosmic stardust.


The newest recruit to G-SHOCK’s infallible Metal Twisted project, the MTGB3000DN-1A  appropriately adopts the striking luminescence of stardust, with ethereal gradated blue and purple on the ion plating and iridescent details on the indices and subdial rings. The band is also made with soft black urethane that is mixed with four colours of aluminium material, again launching the space-age theme into hyperdrive. 

In terms of the engine itself, the timepiece features extra-terrestrial engineering. A signature Dual Core structure protects the model via a carbon fibre-reinforced resin case and by enclosing the exterior in metal components. With the back cover pressed, cut and painstakingly polished into a 3D configuration, the novel structure allows the lugs, crowns and button guards to seamlessly integrate into the back cover, altogether giving the MTGB3000DN-1A a slimmer profile – reducing the case’s thickness to 12.1mm to be exact.

There’s also enough flashy tech to planet-hop across bold new frontiers, including Bluetooth connectivity, Tough Solar, and high-brightness LED light illumination, while Triple G Resist makes sure you have hardline protection against shock, centrifugal force, and vibration.
