[G-Shock Origin] The matte black all-metal G-Shock GMW-B5000MB-1 is to come soon

After a succession of more colorful and playful designs, the all-metal G-Shock GMW-B5000 Series goes back to basics in the GMW-B5000MB-1, scheduled for release in February.

The inverted LCD  looks similar at first glance to the basic black GMW-B5000GD-1 model. Although the number “1” indicates black, it appears to be more grayish or dark metallic color. The surface of the bezel, except for the matte area, appears matte, unlike the glossy surface of the GMW-B5000GD-1. The stainless steel GMW-B5000MB-1 will be more affordable than the recent titanium GMW-B5000TVA-1, and we expect it to be priced around $600 in the United States.

Key features of the GMW-B5000MB-1 include shock resistance, 200-meter water resistance, Tough Solar power, Multi-Band 6 radio wave automatic time synchronization, Bluetooth smartphone communication, and fully automatic LED backlighting.
