Casio G-Shock GMWB5000D-1

Casio G-Shock GMWB5000D-1

The Full Metal 5000 is a brand new, specially crafted all-metal timepiece.

The watch also incorporates one of the first and most iconic G-SHOCK case designs, featuring a vintage, square shape case & bezel with a brick pattern on the face. The GMWB5000D-1 incorporates a super illuminator LED light and solar battery – rendering it capable of self-charging, as well as a special STN LCD. In addition, the timepiece incorporates an upgraded, stylish, full stainless steel housing and DLC screw-back case.
