GMW-B5000TB

Tokyo, September 19, 2019 — Casio Computer Co., Ltd., announced today the latest addition to the G-SHOCK brand of shock-resistant watches. The GMW-B5000TB is the first watch in the square-shaped 5000 series to use titanium for its main exterior components.

The new GMW-B5000TB inherits the square shape of the first G-SHOCK, but uses titanium for the main components: case, band, bezel, case back, and button. Since titanium is lighter than stainless steel, the new model is 57 grams lighter than its steel predecessor, the GMW-B5000D, which enhances comfort. In terms of appearance, the GMW-B5000TB features a screw back case for a tight seal and a black case with gold lettering and lines, reproducing the look of the DW-5000C-1B, the first-ever G-SHOCK.

Diamond-like carbon (DLC) coating is applied to the metal components for superior wear resistance. The glass is made from scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, to which a non-reflective coating is applied, and the display uses an STN-LCD that offers superior viewing angles for enhanced readability, making it easier to tell the time. The GMW-B5000TB also features smartphone connectivity to adjust the time and configure world time and other settings easily from a phone, for superior practicality.
