G-SHOCK UNVEILS FULL METAL GMWB5000 WITH PREMIUM LASER-CUT GRID DESIGN
Latest Model Boasts a Futuristic and Innovative “Grid Tunnel" Pattern on All-Black Stainless-Steel Case


DOVER, NEW JERSEY, mayo 12, 2020 — Today, Casio G-SHOCK announces a new limited-edition timepiece to its Full Metal Series, the GMWB5000CS-1. The new timepiece is constructed with a stainless-steel case and band that features a brand-new, laser-carved grid design.


While inheriting the shape of the first G-SHOCK, the new timepiece boasts an evolved exterior with full metal construction and a Grid Tunnel pattern that connects the past with the future. After a black IP finish is applied to the metal, the grid pattern is engraved by laser, adding a modern touch to the classic design.


The new GMWB5000CS-1 features a diamond-like carbon (DLC) finishing process and laser etching on the screw-lock back case and upholds its metal, shock-resistant exterior with a fine resin cushioning material that is inserted between the stainless-steel case and bezel, and then enclosed in a protective shell. The band connection sections also employ a three-pronged structure to distribute the impact from shocks, further enhancing the model’s state-of-the-art strength and design.


The new timepiece comes equipped with several of G-SHOCK's most premium technical features, including Bluetooth Connectivity via the G-SHOCK Connected app, Multi-Band 6 Atomic Timekeeping for self-adjusting and accurate hour / date display virtually anywhere on the globe, and a specially developed button structure that guards the button shafts from the inside against lateral shocks. It also features Tough Solar Technology, rendering it capable of self-charging even with low sun exposure.


As part of the release, G-SHOCK has unveiled an exclusive landing page taking consumers through the features, which can be viewed HERE.


The GMWB5000CS-1 also comes equipped with standard G-SHOCK technology including:
  • Resistente a golpes
  • Resistente al agua a 200 m
  • STN LCD Digital Display
  • Hora mundial (39 ciudades + UTC)

  • Cronómetro 1/100 segundos
  • 5 alarmas diarias (con 1 alarma de repetición)
  • Temporizador de cuenta regresiva
  • 12/24 Hr. Time Formats

Acerca de G-SHOCK
El reloj G-SHOCK de Casio, resistente a golpes, es sinónimo de dureza, se creó a partir del sue?o del desarrollador, el se?or Ibe, de “crear un reloj que nunca se rompiera”. Más de 200 muestras hechas a mano se crearon y se probaron hasta la destrucción, pero finalmente en 1983, el primer G-SHOCK, ahora icónico, llegó a las tiendas de Japón y comenzó a establecerse como “el reloj más resistente de todos los tiempos”. Cada reloj reúne los 7 elementos: resistencia a impactos eléctricos, resistencia a gravedad, resistencia a bajas temperaturas, resistencia a vibraciones, resistencia al agua, resistencia a golpes y dureza. El reloj cuenta con innovaciones y tecnologías de Casio para evitar que sufra golpes directos, lo que incluye componentes internos protegidos con uretano y módulos de cronometraje suspendidos en la estructura del reloj. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve, continuing to support on Mr. Ibe’s mantra “never, never give up." www.gshock.com.
