Casio has announced their latest addition to the G-SHOCK brand of shock-resistant watches, the GMW-B5000TB, which features the same rugged square look and colour scheme of the very first G-SHOCK. The difference now is the way its made. Titanium for the base, band, bezel, case back, and button, with diamond-like carbon (DLC) coating, and the glass being made of non-reflective scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. This makes the watch 57 grams lighter than its steel predecessor, and with stronger wear resistance. In terms of appearance, the GMW-B5000TB features a screw back case for a tight seal and a black case with gold lettering and lines, reproducing the look of the DW-5000C-1B, the first-ever G-SHOCK. Of course, being in a digital era, the GMW-B5000TB also features smartphone connectivity to adjust the time and configure world time and other settings easily from a phone, for superior practicality. The watch is currently being sold at RM6999 at selected official G-SHOCK stores.
