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 a 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 were 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 advance 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.
