The case, band, bezel, and back cover of this new model is made of lightweight, easy-on-the-wrist titanium. Titanium is notorious as being a material that is difficult to work with, and its application in this model represents a significant achievement.
The surface of the metal is finished with a diamond like carbon (DLC) coating that protects it against scratching and other damage.
The GMW-B5000TCM model is based on the GMW-B5000TB with titanium case, bezel, band, and back, which is laser engraved with a distinctive camouflage pattern. After a DLC coating is applied to the case and band, the gradations of the camouflage pattern are created by using dot patterns of three different sizes: small, medium, and large.
This new full-metal GMW-B5000 Series watch maintains the original G-SHOCK concept while improving overall timekeeping quality.
