    My guess is when G Central announces it.

    For some members here though -- like Steelerswit, and Kubr1ck -- they have so much inherent "bad-a**ery" that when they put on a bad-a** watch, the energy flows from them TO the watch, making the watch EVEN MORE bad-a**!!! Yes, it's a real scientific phenomenon that obscure mad scientists only recently discovered.

    You mean it's not enough they made us the new square in all metal (GMW-B5000) and in all resin (GW-B5600), but they should also make us a new square with metal core case and resin skin? A GW-B5000? May be, who knows. But would there be a high demand for a half resin half metal square, when we already have the other 2 options? That is the question.

    I like the resin GW-B5600 (The yellow model looks great), but I'd instantly drop cash for an updated GW-5000. The GW-5000 is close to a decade old. An update would be nice. :)

    Precisely what do you mean by resin GMW-5000? There's already a resin 3459 - the GW-B5600. Are you talking about a positive display metal case, resin band?

    Agree with Otto. I'd totally get a GW B5000, or whatever this potential, future beaut may be called.

    I agree. For those who prefer metal case, but find all metal bezel and band too heavy / delicate / blingy. Also, easier to use buttons than on the GW5000.

    Yes gents apologies for the ambiguity. I meant to say a 3459 screwback with resin bezel, strap.

    That's what I'm also hoping for.

    I'll be one of the first ones in line if they announce a GW-B5000
