Hands-On With The Casio G-Shock GMW-B 5000 D-1 'Full Metal' Hands-On


In truth, it feels a bit weird, writing a hands-on with the Casio G-Shock GMW-B 5000 D-1 ‘Full Metal.’ Our news piece on it has been one of the highest trafficked articles recently; that’s statistics testifying to the buzz that an all-metal 5000-Series G-Shock we expected to receive. I was excited to see both the all-steel and the IP Gold variants in the metal (oh yeah!), but I came away wanting more time with them to determine how well they’d fair in real life. I mean, priced at $500 and $600 for steel and gold coated respectively, we are no longer in the super affordable segment usually associated with G-Shocks but are taking on some capable indie and big brand dive and field watches… and so fair well, these two must.
