A new contender in the G-Shock Full Metal series is this amazing red model, the $600 GMWB5000RD-4. Built out of stainless steel and containing a classic G-Shock movement, this beast is pretty darn sweet.
From the release:
The latest Full Metal 5000 model carries on the tradition of the original G-SHOCK DW-5000C with its classic square case shape and digital display. The GMWB5000RD-4 also features a band created with a bold red IP finish, and a screw back with a diamond-like carbon finish for outstanding wear resistance.
In addition to an updated look, the new Full Metal timepiece comes equipped with several of G-SHOCK’s new and most premium technical features, including Bluetooth Connectivity via the G-SHOCK Connected app, and Multi-Band 6 Atomic Timekeeping for self-adjusting and accurate hour / date display virtually anywhere on the globe. It also boasts a STN-LCD digital display that makes the watch easy to read from any angle, as well as Tough Solar Technology, making it capable of self-charging even with low sun exposure.
It’s definitely not a smartwatch but it does have multiple time zones, timers, and it looks like something the Imperial Guards in Empire Strikes Back would wear. I approve.
