Over the years, G-SHOCK has garnered a reputation within the wristwear world as a utility-focused entity that transcends the boundary of rank and style. Whether you’re in the market for a waterproof outdoor watch, or a formal example that’s been catered toward urban socialization, the company’s robust catalog is a veritable cornucopia of established timekeepers. And now, we’ve had a chance to get our hands on the sleek GMWB5000D-1.

In our house-shot, hands-on review of the watch, we take a look at the refined, yet rugged stainless steel housing that plays host to the watch’s various components — including its super illuminator LED light and solar battery, striking STN LCD display, and Multi-Band 6 Atomic Timekeeping technology. Inspired by the brand’s first model (the DW5000C) the G-SHOCK GMWB5000D-1 fosters an inherent vintage aura that we can’t get enough of, further bolstered by a great looking square case and bezel, subtle brick patterning on its dial, and a tasteful polished exterior. You can find this retro wonder on the brand’s website for $500.
