Launched over 35 years ago with the intention of creating a watch that was impossible to break, G-SHOCK has had a long and utterly magnificent run marked by thousands of exceptional timepieces. Now, as a celebration of everything they were, are, and will become, they’ve revisited the watch that put them on the map with a modern update called the G-SHOCK GMWB5000.

While it retains the square silhouette of the original, this redux differs in one very major way: its shock-resistant case is made from stainless steel. But that’s not all — this new version is also updated with a wealth of modern features. That includes wireless capabilities and app connectivity, lending it a bevy of smart features that includes auto-adjusting time with a World Timer covering 300 international cities, a phone finder, localized calendar setting and reminders, and more. Of course, it’s also still ultra-tough, extremely reliable, and boasts 200m water-resistance.
