    re: GWM-B5000 Titanium

    You other guys who have pre-ordered at retail feeling a bit silly, how do you think I feel? I don't even wear Casios. I've got 7 pretty decent resins here that I hunted down very carefully and I love looking at them but I just never wear them. Maybe it's the legibility, maybe it's something else but these babies get close to zero wrist time. If the camo titanium does it, it'll stay, otherwise I'm just gonna dump 'em all.

    Thanks. I say that somewhat sarcastically because it's guys like you that have dragged me into gshocks that I just haven't ended up wearing, like at all. Though this time I didn't need your help getting over the line. It's going to be a long wait on the camo because who knows how it will look in the metal.

    re: GWM-B5000 Titanium

    I was on the fence about this G-Shock until I saw it in person at the Topper event. Pre-ordered immediately. I was lucky enough to get both the 35th anniversary Golden square (which I baby way too much) and the stainless steel one at below retail, so I feel comfortable paying full retail for this one. Might even persuade me to part with the golden G-Shock. In any case, a job well done by the folks at Casio.

    Wonder when Casio will come out with a forged carbon chassis square G.

    I think I would rather have that over solid Ti. It could be just like the GW-S5600, but with a forged carbon chassis instead of resin.

    Carbon Square can't be far away.

    I agree. Casio declared earlier that carbon is the new material they are focusing on. Gravitymaster, Mudmaster got the treatment, other Gs as well, there must be a square someday.

    CF outer parts would have not so great characteristics on shock impact, getting dinged and deformed and worst case splinter.

    Titanium case + resin parts makes most sense for a tool watch but I won't be surprised if we see a ceramic case square L.E. in the future :D

    Depending on a quality of the Carbon, the Impact required to cause that kind of damage to a carbon case would totally damage a Ti case too.
    Resin has more damping characteristics when compared to any alloy and carbon but carbon has better damping characteristics when compared to alloy.
    Example - on my mountain bike, Carbon handlebars absorbs way more vibrations caused by the trails than an alloy bar.
    Wheels is a different story because you can build alloy wheels to have more flex.

    I’d love to see a carbon square.

    it wouldnt be pure carbon, it would be a blend of materials together, resin coated carbon or as layers like the mtgb1000xb



    if they were going to deform or splinter so easily, the owners of these better get the tweezers ready lol


    it makes the most sense to have a carbon hybrid for a "tool" watch, best of all worlds esp. lightness. ceramic is brittle, i cant see it happening outside of a caseback like on the gprb.

    as I said - on the outer parts. It could be an upgrade for the case compared to resin. Titanium certainly is compared to the SS cases since the likelihood of rust between bezel and case would be minimized.

    CF is very durable but I managed to ding CF knife handles accidentaly dropping them (Spyderco uses high quality CF), getting it to splinter should be near impossible, still we are talking G-Shock and they are usually tested and used very extreme by some :D

    I was thinking of the center case/core and not the bezel - I agree that a carbon bezel would more susceptible to damage but they could give the bezel a small coating to help with that. I have full carbon mountain bikes that have carbon chain and seat stays that have crashed into rocks, trees, dirt, etc... and have absolutely no splinters, but that's probably helped by the thick layer of resin/clear coat that's on top.

    I'm truly excited to see what they come out with next. I just hope they don't out price many of us again.
