    That would be the GMWB5000TFC the Porter edition that came out last year.

    Buttons and display is the same as any other GMW currently out.

    Awesome vid. I've been watching Random Rob for a while now.
    With such positive review I think chances of getting this thing below retail is slim, at least until they start overproducing them assuming that even happens? Anyone who pre-ordered below retail consider yourself lucky.
    I pre-ordered a MTG-B1000DCM at a good price. I couldn't justify spending that much on another metal G and missed the discounted pre-order but now I want one of these too.

    That's good to know. Thank you for the confirmation. It should be a major improvement over my GW5000.

    re: GWM-B5000 Titanium

    I feel like I've seen this thread before. We've all seen this thread before. Grief from jilted enthusiasts who either bought or otherwise attached themselves to the previous iconic piece, in this case the steel squares. Now that they've announced titanium, the price is too high, the metal and/or the finish is wrong, it looks like some square I've already got etc.

    This is the all-metal square that Casio should've made the first time. Light enough, durable enough, sapphire, starting with a classic square reissue. I'm glad I gave the steel the hard pass it deserved. Why did they even bother with these Ti releases if the steel was such a home run? The steel obviously isn't doing what they hoped if they're willing to gamble on Ti (or admit their initial error, depending on your perspective). I'd be curious what Casio said when they released the steel, whether it would be limited or not. I'm guessing their language was just as vague as they're being about the Ti.

    It'll be interesting to see how many of these filter into backwaters like mine (Australia), particularly the killer camo piece. I doubt they will be saddling up to routinely pump out laser etched cases and bracelets every other week. I can't really say how I'd improve on that camo, so I'm going to try to land one and will pay retail if required. I can see this camo Ti square displacing at least 4 gshocks and maybe a mechanical, so according to the laws of enabling, it'll a) be a decent piece and b) partially pay for itself.

    If these Ti squares fail, I'm sure some of the above reasons will be valid. We can all say atoadaso and go back to our $100 resins and $500 170 gram steel squares. Hurrah! Casio should be applauded for letting the engineers off their leashes a little here and rethinking their all metal squares.

    "Why did they even bother with these Ti releases if the steel was such a home run? The steel obviously isn't doing what they hoped if they're willing to gamble on Ti (or admit their initial error, depending on your perspective)."

    The steel models are still selling very well, and despite what people are saying, these are limited editions, and are not meant to replace the steel models as you're suggesting.

    First off: highly doubtful that the original all steel squares are a flop. Do you have numbers/data to back up your claim? Using the word "obvious" implies that everyone is well aware of this, or at least should be. I think they do quite well.

    As for your theory on why they are making the Ti: I think it's quite the contrary.
    The only reason the Ti is being attempted, is because of the of steel's success. If the steel was a flop, Casio would've abandonded the whole thing, not double down on it! Point is, I think your logic is flawed.

    Oh, and I love love love the OG full metals!

    No Sapphire: who cares? I don't. Sapphire is more brittle than mineral.

    Steel instead of titanium: meh, don't care. I like that they have some heft to them, it makes them feel substantial. If I want light, I will wear my 5610 or my gwb5600-1bc (has Combi and is also a Bluetooth).
    Also, coming from my Seiko divers, it's as light as a feather

    As far as the new Ti; well I'm happy to see them making it, but it in no way detracts from the originals. Oh, and I think the camo Ti looks spectacular. But at $1650, that's a hard pass.

    re: GWM-B5000 Titanium

    The GMW-B5000TB looked great in the press shots but seeing it on video, I don't much care for the polished bracelet sides and polished bezel. The way they are catching light looks kinda cheap and tacky.

    I understand that they probably felt like they need multiple textures/finishes to justify $1500 but personally I would have preferred a uniform matte finish.

    I won't comment on the camo model since camo in general is not something I have any interest in.

    What are you talking about? So you're saying the SS gmw isn't selling well? I find that very hard to believe.
    Also, the Ti version really serves to further strengthen the sales of the SS version. It brings exposure to the line and other than G Shock fanatics no one would ever spend that much on a Ti gmw, but there is a good chance they might on the SS after that.
