I think they are doing 2 more titanium camos, blue and green? Just speculation at this point.

what's the fuss about? Casio made some Mr.G in the past, those are classic, but not really practical for the average Joe's everyday use
unless he is a desk diver

I go to work and run with the lightest G,

Just found this, as rumoured in another thread. Seems pretty legit. GMWB5000RD
I was aware there was a red model in the pipeline, however, not so much “in your face”. I had it in my head it was going to be more like the GW-B5600-AR. i.e. red display.

Another metal square that’s off my “buy” list.

If this picture is anything to go by then the original Camo will take some beating in my opinion!
If red blue or green happen to be the new camo’s then i won’t be a buyer I can’t see it being as nice as the original Camo and I believe is a step to far my opinion of course.

Wow. I’m down for all of these things:

Resin model of the b5000 (with a posi display) Yes please.

The red looks cool but would be so much better all matte( anodized) with a red display or negative.

Color camo,... hmm 50/50 on that one.

@g-fob2

The fuss IMO is that the b5k is a great contender for best overall look and function with the display clarity and durability. (If you like “character” on your G that is). Everyone has their G,.. for mine it is a cross between b5000/gwg1000/9400 rangeman. If I could have every color way in a model it would be my B5ks.

man I can’t wait to see what develops. Worn Gs my whole life and JUST LATELY have begun to obsess. I’m going to hell.

I was expecting the green camo to be more greenish: don't know, it kinda resembles me a mossy cobblestone block from Minecraft :D. Anyhow, let's see the blue one but, at the moment, I personally don't like the green so much.
In spite of that, IMHO the red one looks good but...the IP coating is a big question mark in terms of durability against a DLC coating :\.

As JaredNish wrote in his opening post: a bronze square would be beautiful in my opinion. I kinda hope Casio will develop a carbon fiber and a ceramic square too!

EDIT: in terms of positive displays: I don't know if there will be more of them. Fortunately I don't have difficulties reading the negative ones IF STN as on the new squares but I can imagine for someone of us could represent an unpleasent feature. I think that is pretty clear that camo lineup will be fitted with negative lcds but, on the web is reported to be launched a white camo pattern serie...if a white camo full metal square will come out at some point, IMHO, it will be fitted with positive lcd.

For the ones interested in, here is a new pic: it is the official Casio catalogue image.
15354341

Edit:
Looks like there are some differences between this pic and the previously seen photos: the red corner around the LCD si missing, and the brushed finish on the bezel doesn't match the blingy bezel we saw in the photos. Also the screws: here are red ip coated while in the old photos are blacked out...

I'm intrigued as to why you think Mr.G's are not practical for everyday use?
I thought the whole concept behind Mr.G was that it was a 'nice' watch that was rugged enough for everyday use? :unsure:

Just wondering if anyone has anymore info about the new Gs coming. I heard “metal” and got excited. Not sure if the photo is an actual new model or concept. I, for one, am hoping for a Basel world b5000 in bronze. Or a dull or matte silver color way.

hoping for super secret inside info.


Anything and everything that is metal and square!!! the iron that just released is one of the coolest designs. kudos to Casio for always being themselves on design

did u mean to say “iron”? He cool would that be. Like a skillet type surface. They could also change the surface dimensions of the cover and bracelet to make it resemble a 5000 but with texture or “polygonal” angles as if it were in a video game.

More DLC
More sapphire crystals
Do high polish edges to bezel with sharp edges and corners. More, and better factory brushing like on bezel face,
Do some hardened titanium’s like the super high end Citizens use (duratect mtk duratect alpha etc)

I’ll pay more. Move the line upmarket. These are G shocks for grownups who had the resins a Kid.

basically I want a metal square MR-G

As I've grown to like squares more and more, I'm inclined to agree. A titanium colored square w/a surface hardening treatment and sapphire crystal...I think I'd find the money to get one, even if it is overpriced, and even if that meant selling off some of my current watches. It would tick so many boxes.
