First released in 2018, Casio's square metal G-SHOCKs (GMW-B5000 series) have been one of the company's best-selling watches and now there's a new version of it.
Its full name is the GMW-B5000CS and it's covered in a Tron-like grid motif that Casio says represents a "time tunnel that connects the past with the future". In reference to the fact that the square metal G-SHOCKs were inspired by the very first G-SHOCK of 1983.
The case and bracelet are made out of stainless steel and then given a black ion plating. The silver grid pattern is then achieved by using lasers to carve out the pattern, exposing the stainless steel underneath.
Functionally, the GMW-B5000CS is similar to the GMW-B5000 metal square G-SHOCKs. It's highly shock-resistant, water-resistant to 200 metres, and has Bluetooth connectivity for easy access to the watch's functions and time-syncing.
