    Aged metal case for g shock square?

    Is this available anywhere or would I have to age a third party case myself with chemicals and stone washing?

    b5000v is incredible but massively overpriced in my opinion.

    There is a thread on here showing other buying third party age metal for the 5600 and 5610 models . As for if you're looking for the genuine aged metal that only fits the GMWB5000 series you can check pacparts to see if the can be ordered.

    Hopefully K&L does not mind the share of his handiwork that resulted in the aged metal look.

    Aged metal case for g shock square?

    I managed to grab an aged black set from eBay here in the U.K. and this replicates the vintage GMW-B5000V perfectly, the finish has a lovely satin feel to it and was a great fit.


    I have checked the seller’s current inventory, he has aged silver, but no black, prior to purchasing I hunted high and low on aliexpress and couldn’t find them there then or now.

    Quality seems great, fit is good and cost a fraction of the cost of the 5000V

    I wish somebody here in the UK, did the bead blasted case & bracelet, that some of the guy's here have had done to their GMW-B5000's.
    That's an amazing look, far better than the brushed finish I did to my GMW-B5000.

    There is a local company to me that will powder coat watch bezels, but i can’t see it working at all on a bracelet.
    Price unknown as they wanted a bezel to look at prior to quoting.

    Probably is somewhere that will be beadblast, but the cost would be more palatable if they had a few to do at once.
