G-SHOCK’s 5000 Series puts the very first G-SHOCK – the DW5000C – front and center.

The G-SHOCK Full Metal 5000 Series, which sees the iconic DW5000C watch arriving in a full steel construction in gold or silver, gives the usually rugged G-SHOCK an elegant makeover.

The GMW-B5000D-1 (Silver) represents the first watch in the 5000 series to receive a full metal construction, with its outer components made entirely out of stainless steel.

Despite the full metal construction, the watch still retains the shockproof properties made famous by the original G-SHOCK with the use of a new case fabrication employing a highly durable fine resin insert between the stainless steel case and bezel to absorb shock.

Alongside the silver timepiece, G-SHOCK will also release a special edition timepiece to mark its 35th anniversary this year. The GMW-B5000TFG-9 (Gold) is a striking, ion-plated iteration that’s nothing short of a statement piece. The watch sports the 35th anniversary logo on its case back and will come in a special edition packaging.
