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 its stakes in the high street domain with the newly released camouflage print on its iconic full metal timepieces.

Made of titanium, the GMW-B5000TCM-1 is extremely lightweight and easy on the wrist. The use of titanium also makes it 57 grams lighter compared to 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, with a dedicated production line put specially in place.

The surface of the metal is finished with a diamond-like carbon coating that protects it against scratching and other damages, 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 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.

Finding the perfect balance between modern city lifestyles and the great outdoors, the GMWB5000TCM-1 and MTG-B1000DCM-1A come equipped with standard G-Shock technology including Bluetooth connectivity with the G-Shock Connected app, Two-Way Time Sync technology, and Multi-Band 6 self-adjusting atomic timekeeping to ensure the most accurate hour and date display wherever you go. Both watches are solar-powered and stay water resistant to 200 metres, and even carry a phone finder feature.

The GMW-B5000TCM-1, which retails for S$2299 and the MTG-B1000DCM-1A, which retails for S$1799 are now available at all G-Shock Casio outlets (except the IMM outlet).
