Previously seen in other special edition releases (of the GPW-1000, MTG-S1000, and MTG-G1000), the stainless steel G-Shock GMW-B5000 is getting the vintage IP treatment with the release of the GMW-B5000V-1. To create the unique weathered and vintage appearance, a black IP is applied to the watch which then undergoes a proprietary aging process. This model has a stainless steel band that is also given the aged IP treatment. According to Casio, the vintage appearance “Represents the legacy of timeless toughness,” while the GMW-B5000 base represents, “Continuous evolution in an unchanging form.”
Features include full shock resistance, 200-meter water resistance, Tough Solar power, Multi-Band 6 radio wave timekeeping, Bluetooth mobile link, DLC-coated screw back, reverse STN LCD display, and full auto LED light.
Watchonista reported that the price is $1,000 USD.
