Camouflage print has long been a favourite in high streetwear staple, and thanks to multiple fresh interpretations that lend it a cool factor; luxury brands have been incorporating this element into their designs of late. Hence, it is no surprise that G-SHOCK has raised her stakes in both the high street domain with the newly released camouflage print in her iconic full metal timepieces.
GMW-B5000TCM-1 is extremely lightweight and easy on the wrist as it is made up of titanium where these features are universally known for. The use of titanium makes it 57 grams lighter than the use of stainless steel models. An onerous and laborious work of art where each case band needs to be set by hand for the laser processing to create the camouflage pattern; that a dedicated production line has to be specially put in place.
The surface of the metal is finished with a diamond like carbon (DLC) coating that protects it against scratching and other damage and laser engraved with a distinctive camouflage pattern. The square-face design of the timepiece inherits plenty of the DNA of the original G-SHOCK DW-5000C.
Meanwhile, the MTG-B1000DCM-1A is an elevated statement piece that features an analogue display and sapphire crystal. Similar to the GMW-B5000TCM-1, the metal of this new timepiece is laser engraved with a distinctive camouflage pattern after a black ion plated (IP) coating is applied to its stainless steel case and band. The inside surface of the layer composite band incorporates lightweight, highly wear-resistant fine resin parts for an improved fit.
