FULL-METAL SHOCK-RESISTANT STRUCTURE

Fine-resin cushioning material is inserted between the stainless-steel case and bezel, and the module is enclosed in a protective shell. A shock-resistant structure with a metal exterior is realized, while maintaining the form of the first G-SHOCK model.

SQUARE CASE DESIGN

With the GMW-B5000, the completely waste-free form G-SHOCK realized as the origin of its pursuit of shock resistance has reached a degree of perfection that can be considered its final form. A flat bezel is adopted for the square-shaped case, and the design of the first model is faithfully reproduced using metal.

BAND STRUCTURE

The band connection sections employ a three-pronged structure to distribute the impact from shocks to the connection piping. Dimple-processing is conducted on the metal band links, moreover, and the resin band design of the first model is reproduced.

PREMIUM METAL FINISHING

Hair-line finishing is applied to the upper surface of the bezel and sides of the case and mirror finishing to the case back. Metal texturing is maximized throughout.

DLC-COATED SCREW BACK

The highly airtight screw back is a adapted from the first G-SHOCK’s back. DLC treatment is applied to enhance its wear resistance.

FACE DESIGN

The designs of the logo, function display, digital LCD and other features are modelled on those that embellished the dial of the first G-SHOCK DW-5000C.

FLIM MATERIAL SOLAR PANEL + STN LCD

The solar panel has been changed from glass to an easily processed film material. An opening provided in the center suppresses reflections of outside light to improve the LCD’s visibility. Other advances include adoption of an STN LCD affording higher contrasts and a wider viewing angle.

NEWLY DEVELOPED MODULE

A high-brightness LED illuminates the LCD, ensuring clear visibility in the dark. A fade in and out function is installed.

SUPER ILLUMINATOR (HIGH-BRIGHTNESS LED BACKLIGHT)

A high-brightness LED illuminates the LCD, ensuring clear visibility in the dark. A fade in and out function is installed.
