Update: The Madness x G-Shock DW-5000MD-1 is actually based on the current DW-5000 replica of the original 1983 G-Shock DW-5000C featuring a screw-lock case back. This is a model we usually see as the base for G-Shock anniversary limited editions and it is rarely used for collaborations. The DW-5000MD’s screw-lock case back is engraved with a Madness logo, and the band is dark green. A custom black and olive green box and tin case round out the package. A custom military-inspired box that resembles a wooden ammunition box was also spotted in promotional photos, and this might be a special edition case.
The DW-5000MD-1 will be available by registering at the Madness Online Store on 25 June 2018, and at HBX on July 4. It appears that both sites will be running a lottery for potential buyers. The watch will also be available at the G-Shock Casio Store in Hong Kong on 14 July. (We’re guessing that is the store at Ocean Terminal).

Update: The DW-5000MD-1 will also be available on 15 July 2018 in limited quantities at Casio concept stores in Taipei, Taiwan. For more information visit casio.com.tw.
