These new models change from the past one-piece bezel to a bezel molded using two layers of different colors.
The design concept of these models was to create a lineup of practical and utilitarian colors that go well with street fashions.
2018 marks 35 years since G-SHOCK first revolutionized timekeeping with its innovative toughness back in April 1983, and these new gold color accented anniversary models are being released to mark the occasion. The initial G-SHOCK models were all about toughness, and, in the 35 years since, the lineup has focused on shock resistance, and the ability to stand up to some of the most severe environments and conditions imaginable.
The G-SHOCK black color of these models has been one of the identifying characteristics of the lineup over the years and the gold coloring pays homage to the 35-year history. The case back is impressed with a logo that marks the 35th Anniversary, while the LCD, bezel markings, band ring, buttons, and screws of these models feature glittering gold coloring.
The base models for this collection have been carefully selected to represent some of the major milestones of the 35-year G-SHOCK history: the DW-5000 with its PROJECT TEAM “Tough” marking carries on the tradition of the first G-SHOCK model, the DW-5700, which was the first round-face version, and the GF-8250 FROGMAN diver’s watch, which achieved a level of water resistance up to 200 meters. The result is a lineup that is perfectly representative of G-SHOCK’s 35-year anniversary. The screw back cases of these models give them a heft that lets you feel the toughness of your G-SHOCK throughout the day.
From G-SHOCK, the watch that brought unmatched toughness to personal timekeeping, comes a collection of models that deliver a level of protection. These watches are designed and engineered to become partners of people who like their activities rough and rugged.
Major features include four large bezel screws and protruding surfaces that divide the form of the watch into six sections for a fashionable design. Buttons are among some of the largest available in the G-SHOCK lineup for easy operation.
Low-temperature resistance allows operation even under very cold conditions, while moon and tide graphs provide essential information for marine leisure enthusiasts. A large LCD is divided into sections for that make information easy to locate and read whenever you need it.
This 5-color lineup offers the ultimate in easy operation and easy reading.
