Casio G-SHOCK has unveiled the Full Metal 5000 collection: a brand new, specially crafted all-metal timepiece.
Inspired after 35 years by the original 1983 DW5000 design with its square shaped bezel and brick pattern face, this upgraded 5000 series watch boasts a modern, lustrous, full stainless steel housing, while maintaining a vintage aesthetic that nods to G-SHOCK’s origin. Two featured colorways of this collection include the GMWB5000D-1 in silver and the limited edition GMW5000TFG-9 in gold.
The latest in a series of G-SHOCK Connected watches that feature Bluetooth connectivity, the Full Metal 5000 collection also incorporates a super illuminator LED light and solar battery – rendering it capable of self-charging. In addition, the timepiece features two-way time sync with G-SHOCK’s Multi-Band 6 technology.
Other features include G-SHOCK technology of shock resistance and 200M water resistance, as well as world time (in 39 cities + UTC), four daily alarms and one snooze, a target alarm, a 1/100th second stopwatch and countdown timer, full auto calendar and 12/24hr formats – all in a 43.2mm case.
The new GMWB5000D-1 and GMWB5000TFG-9 will retail for $500 and $600 respectively and will be available for purchase beginning in May 2018
