    re: GWM-B5000 Titanium

    Doubtful this is limited or I think it would be marked as such. Even the first 5000 that was titanium was marked and known to be limited. G-shock's made plenty of model progression in the past. I see this as one more incremental step in the evolution of the square models.

    If this model is titanium machined to look like resin, then it makes sense that the bezel would be DLC coated. Titanium is notorious for picking up surface scratches. I probably pass on this one although it's interesting to read about.

    Looking back on the OP's picture, to me the bezel looks like resin and the bracelet maybe DLC or possibly the newer resin bracelet.

    Not necessarily.... It depends how limited and hard-to-get they are, and how much demand there is. The GMW-B5000TFC-1 is not numbered, but had a huge demand and was VERY limited in its distribution. (only 500 made) Its asking price more than doubled (or tripled) in the months after it was released.

    I'd guess there will be more demand for a titanium square than the Rainbow MTG.

    .....I was gonna say, it looks to me like it has a black, non-DLC SS band (with titanium spring bars), plus a resin bezel OVER a DLC'd titanium bezel, with ceramic bezel screws, over top of a SS case (half of which is made of carbon), and lastly there's a Ti case back, 1/4 of which is SS and 1/2 of which is Vanadium. But I "could be" wrong...

    Soooo, after M-shock's post --- I agree and think I'll wait and see the official specs before making any further comment.

    I wouldn't call them collectors - that gives collectors a bad name. I'd call them flippers. ;)

    EDIT: we still have to consider the fact that Google Translate frequently get wrong
    The accurate translation would be” genuine full titanium, wait and see”.

    Right. Collectors are the folks dumb enough to give their money to the flippers.

    LOL! I collect and I flip. Flipping has vastly improved my collection, and let me see/try a lot of models I wouldn't of experienced otherwise, as I'm not a rich man

    Oh, and don't think I've ever flipped a watch for more than retail leaving everyone happy :)

    Well, not necessarily numbered but the fact that they attached a 500 to that model rather than 'Limited Edition but only we know how many' makes a huge difference.
