Casio GMW-B5000TB Watch with Titanium Main Exterior Inherits the Square Shape of the First G-SHOCK
The new Casio GMW-B5000TB, the latest addition to the G-SHOCK brand of shock-resistant watches inherits the square shape of the first G-SHOCK, but uses titanium for the main components: case, band, bezel, case back, and button. The GMW-B5000TB is the first watch in the square-shaped 5000 series to use titanium for its main exterior components. The GMW-B5000TB features a screw back case for a tight seal and a black case with gold lettering and lines, reproducing the look of the DW-5000C-1B, the first-ever G-SHOCK. Since titanium is lighter than stainless steel, the new model is 57 grams lighter than its steel predecessor, the GMW-B5000D.
Diamond-like carbon (DLC) coating is applied to the metal components for superior wear resistance. The glass is made from scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, to which a non-reflective coating is applied, and the display uses an STN-LCD that offers superior viewing angles for enhanced readability, making it easier to tell the time. The GMW-B5000TB also features smartphone connectivity to adjust the time and configure world time and other settings easily from a phone, for superior practicality. Casio GMW-B5000TB measures 49.3 × 43.2 × 13.0 mm and weighs approximately 110g.
