It has been 35 years since the introduction of the DW-5000C onto the world watch market. Now for 2018 G-SHOCK introduces additions to the new exterior, new structure, and new module GMW-B5000 lineup, equipped with a Connected Engine.

The full-metal hard stainless steel cases and the bezels of these two models have ion-plated finishes in either black or gold. The cases and band also feature hairline finishes to maximize the elegance and presence of the metal. Light-on-dark LCDs further add to the overall chic look of these timepieces.

The base model is the GMW-B5000, which is the model from which we reviewed our hollow case structure and developed an even higher level of shock resistance. Fine resin shock absorbers between the metal bezel and case created a shock resistant structure for a full-metal case. Innovative new band connections use highly shock resistant TROGAMID® to lessens the effects of impact to the band pipes. The back covers of the thick screw back cases of these models come with a diamond-like carbon (DLC) finish that is highly wear resistant. A film solar cell that maintains display clarity and an STN-LCD are used to ensure easy reading of display information, even from an angle.

Use of the latest-version engine makes it possible to achieve high-density component mounting without affecting the size of the finished timepiece. Advanced technology modules are packed into stunning designs that are finished using some of the best that technology has to offer.

Function-wise, these models are designed for outstanding timekeeping accuracy using Bluetooth® data communication and MULTIBAND 6, which supports automatic time setting adjustment based on one of six time calibration signals around the globe. Time information also can be acquired from an internet time server using the G-SHOCK Connected*1 app running on a smartphone. Other functions include Tough Solar in combination with CASIO original power saving technology that delivers a stable supply of power, high-brightness Full Auto LED illumination, World Time, and more. A selection of six languages for the day of the week indicator*2 provides localization at the press of a button. All of this means that accurate timekeeping is ensured no matter where in the world your travels take you.

  • Days of the week in six languages

*1: Smartphone app for use with G-SHOCK Smartphone Link models. It establishes a Bluetooth connection with the watch's Connected Engine for automatic time correction, configuration of World Time and other settings, and more. It also makes it possible to keep updated with the latest time zone and summer time information. A Tough Solar power system generates enough energy to ensure uninterrupted operation of power-hungry functions.
*2: Day of the week languages: English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Russian

Features

Ever since the first DW-5000C, G-SHOCK has been constantly setting new standards in innovative design, tough structure, and powerful modules. Now to mark the 2018 35th Anniversary of the G-SHOCK come the GMW-B5000, a full-metal G-SHOCK with a Connected engine.

This model is full-metal version of the DW-5000 base model which represents a refinement of the hollow case structure to achieve an even higher level of shock resistance. Fine resin shock absorbers between the metal bezel and case created a shock resistant structure for a full-metal case. Innovative new band connections, which are components subjected to the strongest shock levels, add additional center lugs that lessen the load on the band pins. The screw back case, with a highly wear resistant diamond like coating (DLC), gives the watch a feeling of heft.

A film solar cell maintains display clarity and an STN-LCD ensures easy reading of display information, even from an angle. The text and main display layout of the face was painstakingly designed in a way to make it virtually identical to the original base model. Use of the latest-version engine achieves high-density component mounting without affecting the size of the finished timepiece. The external design and internal module advances packed into a full-metal configuration of the GMW-B5000 makes it a model that truly represents the promise of G-SHOCK.

Function-wise, this model is designed for outstanding timekeeping accuracy using Bluetooth® data communication and Multiband 6, which supports automatic time setting adjustment based on one of six time calibration signals around the globe. Time information can be acquired from an internet time server using the G-SHOCK Connected*1 app running on a smartphone.

Other functions include Tough Solar in combination with CASIO original power saving technology that delivers a stable supply of power, high-brightness Full Auto LED illumination, World Time, and more. The day of the week indicator can be configured for display in any of six different languages.*2 Multiband 6 supports automatic time setting adjustment based on one of six time calibration signals around the globe, which helps to ensure accurate timekeeping no matter where your travels take you.
