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, comes the GMWB5000TFG, 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 create a shock resistant structure for a full-metal case. Innovative new band connections, which are components that are 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 GMWB5000 makes it a model that truly represents the promise of G-Shock.
To mark G-Shock's 35th Anniversary, the GMWB5000TFG is a limited-edition gold ion-plated model that dresses up the full metal 5000 specs in a gorgeous gold colour. This, along with a 35th Anniversary logo impressed on the back cover and special packaging, makes this model a great way to mark this momentous occasion.
