he new GMW-B5000 nods to the heritage of that first-ever G-SHOCK while pushing new boundaries in every way—from its materials to the construction and features. The outer components, including the watch band, case, and bezel, are entirely made from stainless steel. The watch also employs a new shock-resistant construction made possible by the use of a highly durable fine resin insert between the stainless steel case and bezel to absorb shock.
In terms of features, the watch keeps accurate time anywhere in the world using the Connected Engine, which connects to a time server via a paired smartphone, and radio wave time-calibration signals. The watch connects to the G-SHOCK Connected smartphone app to enable the user to look up instructions for operating the watch and easily change settings such as world time and alarms from the app.
The GMW-B5000TFG-9 is a special edition watch created to mark the 35th anniversary of G-SHOCK, with a gold ion plating treatment and the G-SHOCK 35th anniversary logo inscribed on the back case, and it comes in a commemorative package.
