G-SHOCK blends luxury and street-wear domains with the newly released camouflage print on its iconic full metal timepieces – the GMW-B5000TCM-1 and MTG-B1000DCM-1A.
Made of titanium, the GMW-B5000TCM-1 is extremely lightweight and easy on the wrist. The use of titanium also makes it 57 grams lighter compared to stainless steel models.
Producing each timepiece is a laborious process where each case band needs to be set by hand for the laser processing to create the camouflage pattern, with a dedicated production line put specially in place.
The surface of the metal is finished with a diamond like carbon (DLC) coating that protects it against scratching and other damages, and laser engraved with a distinctive camouflage pattern. The square-face design of the timepiece inherits the DNA of the original GSHOCK DW-5000C.
Meanwhile, the MTG-B1000DCM-1A is a statement piece that features an analogue display and sapphire crystal. Similar to the GMW-B5000TCM-1, the metal of this new timepiece is laser engraved with a distinctive camouflage pattern after a black ion plated (IP) coating is applied to its stainless steel case and band.
The inside surface of the layer composite band incorporates lightweight, highly wear-resistant fine resin parts for an improved fit.
Balancing modern city lifestyles and the great outdoors, the GMWB5000TCM-1 and MTG-B1000DCM-1A come equipped with standard G-SHOCK technology including Bluetooth connectivity with the G-SHOCK Connected app, Two-Way Time Sync technology, and Multi-Band 6 self-adjusting atomic timekeeping to ensure the most accurate hour and date display.
Both watches are solar-powered and stay water resistant to 200 metres, and even carry a phone finder feature.
