    If full metal 5x00 G-Shocks were ever existed...

    Honestly, I have been waiting for a full metal cased 5000/5600 all my life and it is not yet come true...
    I absolutely love the current MTG design but it is just build too big for majority's wrists. In my opinion MTG looks better than current MRG.
    When G-Shock make early metal SS/Ti MRGs, these MRGs have completely brand new designs. They are great but not as good as 5000/5600 in my opinion.

    WHY G-Shock has to make thing so complicated? Why not just make exactly the same 5000/5600 case in metal without changing a thing?

    Anyway, I was looking at the PP and feel like it kinda looks some what like a G-Shock 5000/5600...

    This might be the closest I've seen:
    MRG-110-7

    The whole point of the resin is to offer one of the levels of protection that make a G-Shock a G-Shock. While the MRG line is an interesting departure, they have always been, at least in my opinion, something closer to jewelry than a tool.

    As a side note, Casio did in fact release a one-off gold 5600 but that's more a piece of art than something functional.

    How about these aftermarket bezels, maybe fit one on a modern screwback 5000/50XX

    Something like that. GW-G5000D-1A2JF. on brushed SS or Ti.
    Looks like Patek Nautilus, no?
