This wild new G-Shock has an interesting feature: the entire case and band is embedded with circuitry designs that come directly from the G-Shock’s circuit board module.

The Casio G-Shock GMWB5000TCC offers a classic G-Shock look with its 43.2mm-wide octagonal “5600”-style case, case side ridges, hooded lug divots, pushers, and raised smooth octagonal bezel. It is made of proprietary ultra-hard, easily polishable TranTixxii titanium alloy developed in partnership with Nippon Steel Corporation. The case features a four-stage finishing process, including polishing, laser engraving, ion plating, and another round of laser engraving to create an intricate web of highlights, midtones, and shadows in a monochrome color palette. The “Circuit Camouflage” pattern extends throughout the case and onto the bracelet, celebrating the digital heart of the G-Shock series. The watch is impressively robust, with shock resistance and 200 meters of water resistance.

I got to see the piece in the wild a week ago and was honestly amazed. It’s a great looking G-Shcok with loads of character.

Now for the bad news. This piece – which was lovely in real life – is $1,800 which is a bold price even for such a great watch. If you’re totally into this beast then it’s well worth a look but man, that’s bracing.

The watch is available now for all your streetwear needs.
