Casio G-SHOCK Gives The Classic GMW-B5000 A 'Full Metal' Makeover


After teaming up with snowboard manufacturer Burton for a new spin on the G-SHOCK Mudmaster, Casio has unveiled two ‘Full Metal’ iterations of its classic GMW-B5000 watch. Available in silver and gold colourways, with the former being a general release and the latter being a limited edition, the GMW-B5000 watches are constructed from impact resistant metal and completed by a Haze-designed logo backplate.

To add to this, each timepiece features a new solar film technology with a high brightness backlight and Bluetooth connectivity, which allows each watch to connect to smartphones for reminder alerts, automatic time adjustments, and record stamp location data. Priced at £400 and £500 respectively, the Casio G-SHOCK GMW-B5000 ‘Full Metal’ pack is set to drop at select retailers on April 13th. In related news, check out the latest version of the iconic BAPEX Type 3 watch.
