So. How long before we see: full specs,a release date and price? Might be interested...
Don't know, I think would preferred a standard grey-unpainted titanium as Citizen use on their promasters (I'm thinking about the Orca for example). In spite of that it will undoubtly be a beautiful GS!!!
Based on the pic only the case appears to be titanium,beneath resin. If the bezel was titanium, they wouldn't need to put the word 'titanium' on the dial. The all metal B1000 doesn't have 'steel' on the dial.

My two thoughts: first, weird if the bracelet isn't(?) titanium as well. I would expect Casio to go all-in with this one. Second, personally I would prefer a less busy watch face for something as special as this. (That is to say, a more cohesive/centered layout and also colored more like the GW-5000 and less "there's text in blue and grey and yellow and... :P)
I do think the classic color schemes, like on the GW-M5610, are fun and retro-cool and everything, in the best possible way; I'd just like to see a more "serious" scheme at least as an option for a full titanium one.
Looks to me like the bezel is in fact metal. If so, scratch city. Why even bother with the resin then?
It's very difficult to tell from looking at that pic if the bezel is in fact metal or resin. But given this watch is part of the "all-metal" series, and it's the titanium SHOWSTOPPER to boot, I highly doubt that Casio would 'ruin' it by putting a resin bezel on it. So my guess is that it's metal. (Ti)
Scratch city? No. Not if it has DLC coating, which it probably does.
IMO it ALSO would make ZERO sense to have a titanium case and bezel, with a SS band. You would not gain much of any weight reduction to the overall watch by saving a few grams from the case and bezel. The band is where you'd see a huge weight reduction. So I believe the band is titanium as well.
As for thoughts of sapphire??? I'll believe that when I see it! (actually, when it comes out in official specs from Casio!) As some might remember, prior to the release of the GMW-B5000TFC-1, ppl said it had sapphire. Some ppl were adamant about that. Turned out to be FALSE. Rumors can be a bi**h.

Look how many iterations the steel version has. I suspect this isn't the only full titanium model we'll see :0 and that makes me very happy :)
Personally hoping for a Speed model with full titanium. :D
$1,500? Surely the whole thing is Titanium with DLC.
Resin bezel, SS bracelet? Doesn't make sense and it all looks metal to me.
