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.
