Cyber Gear Straight From The Virtual World
Introducing a second addition to the shock-resistant, full-metal GMW-B5000 line of watches designed to evoke virtual reality. Geometric camouflage achieved with ion plating creates the look of gear one might see in the virtual world. Details like laser-engraved markings give the watch a thoroughly playful spirit. This special timepiece integrates toughness with the fun of virtual reality.
The exterior design sports a motif evoking gear from the virtual world. We apply titanium carbide to the bezel and band, then add multiple layers of coloured IP while masking certain areas to create silver, brown, and black geometric patterns in irregular combinations. Then we finish with laser-engraved markings to capture the look of high-end virtual gear down to the finest detail.
Made of titanium, it delivers both strength and lightness.
The case, bezel, and band are light, strong, pure titanium. Holes are bored into the lugs and band, and the bores in the lugs reveal the fine resin buffering component. An orange inlay accents the light button to give flair to the side view.
Like the first G-SHOCK, the GMW-B5000TVB uses a screw-lock case back that ensures a tight seal. Made of titanium, it delivers both strength and lightness. The case back is coated in diamond-like carbon (DLC) to enhance abrasion resistance.
*Due to the screw-lock construction of the case back, the orientation of the logo and lettering on it may not match up perfectly with the dial.
