Casio G-SHOCK is expanding its virtual armor series with a new titanium timepiece dropping in July.

The series launched back in October with the GMW-B5000TVA1, a watch inspired by the powered suits found in anime.

This follow-up, the GMW-B5000TVB, continues the use of overlaid functional text and adds texture with TIC titanium coating, achieved here using a seven-stage process of coating, layered masking and laser engraving.

Once again bore holes through the titanium casing reveal the “resin buffering component” beneath, while geometric camouflage in black and brown ion-plating again suggest “the look of high-end virtual gear.”

The solar-powered GMW-B5000TVB features sapphire crystal glass, 200m water resistance, a smartphone link, five world times, five alarms, stopwatch and Multi Band 6 radio-controlled timekeeping.

The GMW-B5000TVB drops in July via G-SHOCK, priced £1,500 GBP (approximately $1,890 USD).

Elsewhere in watches, Artisans de Genève turns Rolex Daytona into icy blue Arolla.
