Central Marketing Group Co Ltd, the official distributor of Casio G-SHOCK Thailand, unveils the new Full Metal 5000 Series collection: a brand new, specially crafted all-metal timepiece to commemorate 35 years of G-SHOCK. Inspired by the original 1983 ORIGINS design with its square-shaped bezel and brick pattern face, this upgraded 5000 series watch boasts a street luxury design with modern, lustrous, full stainless steel housing, while maintaining a vintage aesthetic that nods to G-SHOCK's ORIGINS. Three featured colourways of this premier collection include the GMWB5000D-1 (Silver Edition) in silver and the GMW5000TFG-9 (Gold Limited Edition) in gold and the GMW-B5000TFG-9 (Porter Limited Edition) in black.
Since the launch of the first ORIGINS in 1983, G-SHOCK ORIGINS watches have continued its popularity with the iconic square-shaped façade that represents the true heritage of the brand. Through 35 years of innovation, G-SHOCK’s square-shaped ORIGINS chronicle continues to evolve while maintaining its iconic shock-resistant characteristics and four core brand DNAs - Structure, Function, Material and Design.
- Structure – Hollow case structure with shock-absorbent characteristics and iconic square-shaped design
- Function – Various functions that assures practicality under any circumstances from LED backlighting, solar energy, radio control, sport mode and temperature resistance through rain and shine
- Design – Outstanding design with innovative colour combination from urethane resin to EL backlight to suit every style and occasion

Throughout the years, G-Shock holds true to its top-of-the-line standard with the use of high quality materials and construction, from the original resin band, to this new edition of the first ‘Full Metal’ stainless steel edition today. In addition, new G-SHOCK watches are equipped with functionalities that have developed over the years to further enhance the versatility of the timepieces, such as LED backlighting, solar energy, radio control, sport mode, temperature resistance and smartphone connectivity function. The new GMW-B5000 nods to the heritage of the classic G-SHOCK ORIGINS whilst pushing new boundaries - from its materials to the construction and features. The outer components, including the watch band, case, and bezel, are made entirely from stainless steel that gives a timeless street luxury feel. The watch also employs a new shock-resistant construction made possible with the use of a highly durable fine resin insert between the stainless steel case and bezel to absorb shock.
The new GMW-B5000 Full Metal series (Silver and Gold) and other G-SHOCK ORIGINS series are available today at G-SHOCK CASIO stores, Watch Station and leading department stores.
For G-SHOCK ORIGINS fans, stay tuned for the release of Full Metal GMW-B5000KL, CASIO’s special collaboration with Japanese fashion brand kolor, in its G-SHOCK brand of shock-resistant watches. Only limited edition of 700 watches will be sold worldwide.
