After seeing luxury timepieces from names like Chanel and Gucci showcasing their latest accessories at Baselworld, stalwart watchmaker Casio unveils an added option to one of their popular G-SHOCK series. The Full Metal collection, which has seen updates in black and gold, now gets an added option for a more rugged treatment of the design.

The new GMWB5000V has been coated with a black ion-plating and underwent an aging process to give it a patina, resulting in a unique, worn-in industrial look. Much like the Full Metal 5000-series, the upgraded watch also encompasses a stainless steel shock-resistant case, while maintaining the structure of the first G-SHOCK model. It also includes a Super Illuminator LED backlight, DLC-coated back, Bluetooth connectivity and solar power.

The G-SHOCK GMWB5000V is expected to release sometime this summer. Casio also recently revealed a colorful Rainbow MT-G which is anticipated to hit retailers in June.
