Model Feature Icon

Highly mobile gear with laser etching and DLC titanium straight from the virtual world

This new model, inspired by a virtual reality worldview, is based on the full-metal GMWB5000 and inherits the square form of the very first G-SHOCK. Taking inspiration from powered suits, the watch features titanium parts coated with diamond-like carbon (DLC) and laser-etched with the watch’s specifications, lending a gritty, near-future feel to the watch. This special model has a playful design with special attention given to the materials, sculpted shape, and finished look.

DESIGN & TECHNOLOGY

Evoking a virtual reality worldview: DLC coating and laser etching

Evoking a virtual reality worldview: DLC coating and laser etching

The exterior design, inspired by the powered suits featured in virtual worlds, is achieved using titanium parts. DLC coated after honing and mirror finished, the substantial and bold look of the watch is laser-etched throughout with the model number and warning marks. These details evoke the image of tough, highly mobile specialized gear.

The case, bezel, and band are made from light, strong titanium. Holes are bored into the lugs and band using laser boring, and the bores reveal the fine resin buffering component. The design features red accents such as the light button, which has a machined groove with red inlay.

The watch inherits the square shape of the very first G-SHOCK. Printed on the glass is a geometric pattern in a virtual world theme, instead of the standard brick pattern. The playful design includes details such as speech balloons for the function marks next to the buttons.

Buffering components made of fine resin are installed between the titanium bezel and case. With its metal exterior in the original form of the very first G-SHOCK, the watch makes the most of its shock-resistant structure.

DLC coated screw-lock back case for a tight seal

Like the very first G-SHOCK, the GMWB5000TVA uses a robust screw-lock back case that ensures a tight seal. The bevels are mirror-finished and the entire watch is coated in diamond-like carbon (DLC) to enhance abrasion resistance.
