Beyond the classic silver option, further color variations achieved through ion plating (IP) processes emphasize the texture of the metal. The watches’ looks of brilliance—gleaming with tough rigidity and fine quality—serve to enhance the sense of presence of the full-metal design.
A stainless steel case with a resin band—different materials are combined to expand the range of design possibilities. Editions are also available featuring cases and bands made of titanium which is gentle on the skin when been worn, but at the same time maintaining the strength, lightness and rust resistance.
An original vision is given form through special processes applied to the metal, including ion plating and laser engraving. The watches’ exterior finishes—achieved with subtlety and boldness alike—significantly extend the potential of this toughness-oriented design.
The history of the G-SHOCK is a history of collaboration, as well. The GMW-B5000 is no exception, with its incorporation of a diverse array of cultural combinations. Resonating with the G-SHOCK spirit of toughness, they create a sense of presence that makes the watch integrate more closely with wearers’ styles of living.
