Last week, Casio unveiled two new versions of the Full Metal 5000 collection that was first introduced in March.
The regular collection will now include an all-black (GMWB5000GD-1) version and an updated gold model (GMWB5000GD-9), both crafted in the same 42.8 mm diameter stainless steel case and bracelet which are plated and feature alternating polished and brushed surfaces.
Like the original collection that we reviewed in-depth here, the Full Metal 5000 has a battery-powered quartz movement recharged by sunlight through the dial (Tough Solar). It also has Multi-Band 6 atomic timekeeping and Bluetooth connectivity which together provide super precise redundant automatic time calibration.
One of the most notable additions to the line is an updated negative STN LCD display which renders the digital display in white and background in black.
The other standard features include 200 meters water-resistance, extreme drop and shock resistance, 4 daily alarms, world time (39 TZ & 39 cities), target alarm, 1/100th stopwatch and countdown timer, full auto calendar, 12/24 hour formats.
The Full Metal 5000 GMWB5000GD-1 and GMWB5000GD-9 will retail for $550 and will be available for purchase beginning in November 2018 at G-SHOCK retailers including select jewelers, select Macy’s, the G-SHOCK Soho Store, and www.gshock.com.
