Add a definitive, solid statement to your style with a G-SHOCK 40th Anniversary Recrystallized limited-edition timepiece.
We mark this anniversary with the GMW-B5000PS — an addition to the line of GMW-B5000 full-metal takes on the very first G-SHOCK, the DW-5000, which debuted 40 years ago in April 1983. The limited-edition timepiece is clad in recrystallized and deep-layer hardened stainless steel developed with this run in mind.
Following recrystallization and deep-layer hardening, the bezel and band are treated with titanium carbide (TiC) coating and the screw-lock case back with DLC coating for a bold, radiant look. In a special nod to the DW-5000, the dial features the phrase “SINCE 1983.”
The case back is engraved with the Eric Haze-designed 40th logo, and the lower left button is engraved with a star, for a timepiece that crystallizes the G-SHOCK 40th anniversary celebration.
The standard time radio wave and Bluetooth® communications antenna are placed in the vicinity of the LCD window or button shafts to avoid any influence of the full-metal structure on reception sensitivity.
This app enables you to stamp events and the time of their occurrence on the map with watch button operation. You can edit titles and manage entries as log data by G-SHOCK Connected app.
The texture of the stainless steel for this model is enhanced not only with the recrystallisation and deep-layer hardening processes, but also by an additional TiC coating. The screw-lock case back also has a DLC coating applied to it and is engraved with the 40th anniversary logo. A star is engraved on the Mode button on the lower left side of the case, and the phrase “SINCE 1983” appears on the dial.
*Due to the screw-lock construction of the case back, the orientation of the logo and lettering on it may not match up perfectly with the dial.
