Matte black full-metal G-Shock GMW-B5000MB-1 coming soon

G-Shock GMW-B5000MB-1

After a string of more colorful and playful designs, the full-metal G-Shock GMW-B5000 series is going back to basics with the GMW-B5000MB-1, which is expected to be released in February.

With its inverted LCD display, the wach has a similar appearance to the basic black GMW-B5000GD-1 at first glance. Though the “1” indicates a black color, it appears to be more of a grayish or dark gunmetal color. The bezel surface apart from the brushed area appears to have a matte finish versus the glossy finish of the GMW-B5000GD-1. As a stainless steel model, the GMW-B5000MB-1 will be more affordable than the recent titanium GMW-B5000TVA-1, and we’re expecting the price to be around $600 in the U.S. (It could end up costing more due to the unique matte finish or possible limited status. The matte finish also brings to mind the limited GMW-B5000V-1 featuring a vintage-style aged ion plating, which had a price of $1,000.)

Major features of the GMW-B5000MB-1 include shock resistance, 200-meter water resistance, Tough Solar power, Multi-Band 6 automatic radio wave time syncing, Bluetooth smartphone link, and a full auto LED backlight.

This post will be updated.

Indeed, but self-dependent time zone adjustment would cross the t.
