The G-SHOCK GMW-B5000MB
As featured on Hondinkee
The first full metal G-SHOCK was born in 2018, starting with the stainless steel-clad GMW-B5000D, and since then, a wide variety of variations have been developed. The collection has become a symbol of the CMF (color, material, and finish) design that Casio has been promoting in recent years, including the aggressive use of new materials, color expression using IP and DLC, and unique patterns created by aged processing and lasers. While the form of this collection follows that of ORIGIN, it has a different appeal from the basic models with resin, and has succeeded in attracting new followers as well as long-time G-SHOCK geeks.
The latest steel ORIGIN is the GMW-B5000MB, a cool monochrome two-tone model based on a matte-textured black case and bracelet, with only the top surface of the bezel finished in silver. The design source is the GMW-B5000GD-1 from the first Full Metal ORIGIN collection, the first blacked stainless steel piece in the Full Metal ORIGIN lineup, treated with IP to give it a deep and glossy look.
