    CHECK IT OUT! - Custom Cerakoted GMW-B5000

    Well guys, I took the plunge and got my GMW-B5000 customized. The metal bezel, pushers, bezel screws, clasp and strap keeper were beadblasted and Cerakoted in sniper gray to produce an awesome stealthy tactical type of g-shock.

    The work was done by motor city watch works at a very reasonable price. I would recommend his service to any of you.

    Without further ado, here are some promised pictures:

    That looks sweet! What was the turnaround time and price? You can PM me if you’d like.

    I know MCWW had a sizable backlog a few years back

    Looks great!! I really like that look. Personally I'd like to see that whole finish applied to the bracelet also!

    I never saw that color of bead blasting before. It looks very cool!!

    He specifically states he doesn't do bracelets. I bet the way the fit and rub together would wear off the coating pretty quickly.

    Price was in the mid $200s. Turn around time was something like 8-9 weeks. Better than the 12 stated on his website.

    CHECK IT OUT! - Custom Cerakoted GMW-B5000

    I received my GMW-B5000-1 stainless steel parts back from Motor City WatchWorks yesterday.
    First of all, thank you to the OP ‘marked’ for sharing your pics and experience with MCWW. This thread convinced me to give MCWW a try and it paid off.
    Second, I would recommend MCWW. The communication from Jay was superb. Parts were finished and sent back to me within 8 weeks which was well within the quoted 8-12 week window. Price was very reasonable.
    I sent the following GMW-B5000-1 parts to receive a black cerakote coating:
    Bezel
    Button assemblies minus the C-clip
    Screws
    Strap keeper
    Strap buckle and tang

    Below are some pics of the parts as I rebuilt the watch:





























    I am quite impressed with the work performed on all of the parts, especially the buttons and screws. The matte black parts meld well with the resin strap to my eyes. I decided to use the resin strap from the GMW-B5000G-1 because it has the black wings underneath as opposed to the red ones of the GMW-B5000-1.
    My G-1 is waiting for a GMW-B5000GD-1 bracelet to arrive from TikTox.

    All in all I am happy with how this project turned out.

    Thank you for looking.
