It’s hard to believe that our favourite eighties’ sports watch is celebrating its 35th anniversary. The original G-Shock DW-5000C was released in 1983 and its rugged square shape and durability proved an immediate hit with a Generation X growing up with lightsabers and time-travelling DeLoreans.
The new limited edition GMW-B5000 gives a solid nod to the heritage of those first-ever G-Shocks, whilst simultaneously celebrating innovative forward-thinking through features such as integrated Bluetooth, 22 months of battery life and the ability to survive water depths of 200 meters.
The outer components, including the watch band, case, and bezel, are entirely made from stainless steel while the interior employs a new shock-resistant construction to keep all those neat features safe.
Complete with radio-controlled timekeeping, this special edition style is sure to make its mark in the G-Shock Hall of Fame and give the luxury watch brands a run for their money.
