G-Shock GMW-B5000V-1 Vintage Style with Black Aged IP (US: GMWB5000V-1)

G-Shock GMW-B5000V-1 with Black Aged IP

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.

Update: Casio announced the GMW-B5000V-1JR for a June 7, 2019, release in Japan with a list price of 110,000 JPY. It was also announced for other Asian countries, presumably for a June 2019 release. A U.S. release is also expected with a list price of $1,000 USD. According to the Japan model number, this is a limited edition release but the production amount is not known.

You’re trying too hard, Casio. Don’t follow the Swiss brands with this faux-vintage nonsense, please. All we want is that brushed finish on the bezel replicated over the rest of the watch.

Casio has been doing this aged IP treatment on G-Shocks for a few years now and basically created this style for watches. I’m not aware of any other brand that does something similar (other than for knives).

That looks dope. But I’m not going to pay another 500€ for a third B5000 :D.

I’m a bit confused with which of these B5000 models are limited edition and which aren’t. Casio say the B5000GD-9ER is but I can´t find anything on their site about it being limited. Can anyone clear this up because I’m really tempted to buy but would prefer a limited model.

Yes, sometimes in Europe they say it is a limited edition but in Japan it is not advertised as a limited edition. If you look at the G-Shock Japan site, the official limited edition watches will have a model number ending with JR (and a non-limited edition will end with JF). But a lot of the JF models have a set production run and are eventually discontinued (such as the seasonal color series) so some of these can be considered limited even though they are not officially a limited edition. The limited GMW-B5000 models tend to sell out very quickly as we saw with the GMW-B5000TFG-9.
