G-Shock GMW-B5000CS-1 with Laser-Carved Grid Exterior

G-Shock GMW-B5000CS Laser-Carved Grid Case and Band

Casio officially announced the G-Shock GMW-B5000CS, a full metal luxury square model featuring a laser-carved grid design on the case and band. The GMW-B5000CS was previously revealed at Casio’s latest product exhibition in Tokyo, but its identity was a mystery to most people until now.

The grid pattern on the exterior is inspired by the concept of a time tunnel that connects the past with the future. This retro-futuristic style features prominent silver lines that are created by applying a black ion plating and then using a laser to carve out the grid pattern. The laser grid pattern also extends to the outer edge of the DLC-coated screw-lock case back. The GMW-B5000CS is the latest in CMF (color, material, finish) innovation for G-Shock, which has previously released other unique CMF-themed models in the GMW-B5000 line.

(Update: The grid lines, as reported by Japanese media (new close-up photos there), are actually the stainless steel surface showing from below the black IP coating. The watch reportedly weighs 167 grams.)

The GMW-B5000CS-1 is shock-resistant and water-resistant to 200 meters. Other features include Tough Solar power, Multi-Band 6 radio-controlled time adjustment, Bluetooth smartphone link, and STN LCD display.

As seen in the candid shot and video below, the distinctive grid pattern gives the look of a virtual object brought to life. The GMW-B5000CS-1 is reportedly coming to Japan in May 2020, with a tax included price of 96,800 JPY.

Update: The U.S. list price for the GMWB5000CS-1 is expected to be $800.
