The awesome-looking G-Shock 5000-Series, the daddy of all G-Shocks, is getting a full-metal case in steel with the Casio G-Shock GMW-B 5000 D-1 and in IP gold with the GMW-B 5000 TFG-9. The 5000-Series case will measure 49.3 by 43.2 by 13.0 millimeters and will weigh around 167 grams – with the bracelet attached, of course. All stainless steel was used for the exterior, i.e. the bezel, case, caseback, and bracelet, while a new impact-resistant structure has been adopted in the design of the steel case to absorb shock. This features a durable resin material that fits between the polished and brushed bezel cover and the metal core that houses the movement. The bracelet is also secured to this inner black metal core with a massive, screw-headed pin to ensure the durable, but comfortable movement of the bracelet. Even the pushers appear to be metal.
