Following the release of a camo-print rendition of the full metal GMW-B5000, Casio G-SHOCK is now launching yet another pattern-heavy version of the robust beater, this time using a new production technique: laser-etching.

Taking a fully blacked-out metallic body as its canvas, the Japanese watchmaker employed the help of a laser cutter to etch on a retro-futuristic grid pattern encompassing the entire timepiece, from the bezel to its strap to even its digital dial. Finishing the aesthetics is a screw-lock caseback with a DLC finish. Of course, in usual G-SHOCK fashion, the watch is as functional as it is a looker, boasting an enhanced shock-resistant structure thanks to the implementation of a resin-based cushioning material. Other standard features include multi-band 6 atomic timekeeping, a world timer supporting up to five different timezones, solar charging, Bluetooth connectivity to the brand’s proprietary smartphone app, and full-LED automatic backlight.

There’s currently no release date, so G-SHOCK fans should definitely keep an eye out on the company’s website for more news to come.

Elsewhere in watches, Patek Philippe, Audemar Piguet and Hublot join Rolex in suspending the operation of their factories in Switzerland.
