    re: GWM-B5000 Titanium

    Late to the party.

    they are really milking it, aren't day? square + metal = luxury prices. At 1,5k I am looking at vintage Seiko chronos or vintage GS. Plenty of G-Shock collectors out there so I think this will sell well.

    Casio "“Because it takes so much work, we can’t put it out without limiting the production period. However, using titanium makes it 57 grams lighter than stainless steel, so I would like more people to actually get the ‘lightness.’"

    Really, working on Tit has been done for decades, there are plenty 200$ titanium watches. And if I can mill custom tit grade 5 knife scales in my basement that have perfect fit it shouldn't be a challenge for their high tech industry equipment.

    If I want lightness I wear a square that comes with resin bezel and strap not a full metal construction.


    Its nice that they went back to titanium though. I am hoping for a sensible GW5K - Titanium update with resin parts in the future.

    Can't wait to see these in person. Aside from a price that's a bit hard to stomach, that non camo titanium will probably find my watch box. Where are people pre ordering these from?

    It seems to be their strategy to get a foot in the door to the luxury segment for those that don't fancy the full analog luxury Gs.
    I wouldn't be surprised if we see a full steel GA-2100 in the future.

    So..In recent weeks I've changed my mind about the camo and after the event at Topper Jewelers I spoke with Rob and preordered the camo as well.

    Thanks for the pics, @acadian! This is the best one I've seen yet.

    I'm really excited for this release. It just seems like the culmination of ~36 years of development to create something so like the original and yet so different.

    I'm glad it's so "ordinary" looking, too. I like the idea of wearing something so sleek, iconic, and finely made — and yet appearing to most as a "cheap digital watch." I get a kick out of that (the "anti-Rolex"?). I feel a similar way wearing the GW-5000, but I think this one will be on another level.

    I know a lot of people were (and still are) excited about the steel squares, but for me there was a disconnect with how blingy and heavy the original releases were. Cool, to be sure, but not quite for me. This one fits the bill, and I like that it will be similar in weight and style to the original DW-5000C-1B.

    100% the camo for me also....but as noted, my watch budget is toast for now, and need to clean some space in the watch box!

    That said, 2020 is just around the corner, and the beginning of a new watch year!

    I absolutely agree. The steel square was a fantastic step forward in the evolution of squares. They were great, but none of them was the long lost brother of the GW5000. I don't want to sell that and I don't want a watch too similar either. Plus the weight was a bit too much for a square.

    The camo fits the bill wonderfully. True that it costs an arm and a leg - not far from MR-G territory - but voting with my wallet I'm willing to pay for a quality product from my favourite brand. That's why I pre-ordered it weeks ago.
