CASIO G-SHOCK REVEALS FIRST ALL-METAL MEN’S 5000 MODEL
Inspired By the Iconic DW5000 Model, New Timepiece Adds Modern Take On Classic G-Shock Style

DOVER, NEW JERSEY, MARCH 22, 2018 -Casio G-SHOCK unveils the Full Metal 5000 collection: a brand new, specially crafted all-metal timepiece. Inspired after 35 years by the original 1983 DW5000 design with its square shaped bezel and brick pattern face, this upgraded 5000 series watch boasts a modern, lustrous, full stainless steel housing, while maintaining a vintage aesthetic that nods to G-SHOCK’s origin. Two featured colorways of this collection include the GMWB5000D-1 in silver and the limited edition GMW5000TFG-9 in gold.

The latest in a series of G-SHOCK Connected watches that feature Bluetooth connectivity, the Full Metal 5000 collection also incorporates a super illuminator LED light and solar battery – rendering it capable of self-charging. In addition, the timepiece features two-way time sync with G-SHOCK’s Multi-Band 6 technology.

Other features include G-SHOCK technology of shock resistance and 200M water resistance, as well as world time (in 39 cities + UTC), four daily alarms and one snooze, a target alarm, a 1/100th second stopwatch and countdown timer, full auto calendar and 12/24hr formats – all in a 43.2mm case.

The new GMWB5000D-1 and GMWB5000TFG-9 will retail for $500 and $600 respectively and will be available for purchase beginning in May 2018 at select Macy's, select jewelers, shopcasio.com, and the G-SHOCK Soho Store.

About G-SHOCK
CASIO’s shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch is synonymous with toughness, born from the developer Mr. Ibe’s dream of ‘creating a watch that never breaks’. Over 200 handmade samples were created and tested to destruction until finally in 1983 the first, now iconic G-SHOCK hit the streets of Japan and began to establish itself as ‘the toughest watch of all time’. Each watch encompasses the 7 elements; electric shock resistance, gravity resistance, low temperature resistance, vibration resistance, water resistance, shock resistance and toughness. The watch is packed with Casio innovations and technologies to prevent it from suffering direct shock; this includes internal components protected with urethane and suspended timekeeping modules inside the watch structure. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve, continuing to support on Mr. Ibe’s mantra “never, never give up.” www.gshock.com.
