Looking back at the watch that put the G-SHOCK name under the spotlight, it’s easy to see why the ultra-tough horological line took off and why it has no intention of slowing down. The G-SHOCK GMWB5000 is that original timepiece reborn with modern touches to celebrate the brand’s birth.

This striking wristwatch takes inspiration from the DW5000C with its classic aesthetic, including its iconic square shape case and bezel along with its brick-shaped face pattern. The watch is packed with plenty of reliable technology, including a super illuminator LED light, solar battery for self-charging, and a unique STN LCD display. It also comes with G-SHOCK’s Multi-Band 6 Atomic Timekeeping technology for precision timekeeping anywhere you roam thanks to radio signals from up to six different transmitters around the globe and two-way time sync via Bluetooth Connectivity and the G-SHOCK app. As expected with G-SHOCK watches, this model is ultra durable with 200-meter water resistance, and shock resistance. You can sport the retro GMWB5000 today for $500.
