G-Shock GMWB5000V ‘Aged IP’ Watch

Amidst a wave of invasive styles and variants, G-Shock’s nostalgic lineup of rugged heritage wristwear has always found a way to “stay true” to the company’s ethos. While it might be easier for the brand to divert from their old-school silhouettes and embrace the new direction of watch culture, their newly introduced GMWB5000V “Aged IP” calls upon a bygone era, once more.

The timeless look of G-Shock’s watches is one of the company’s greatest strengths, and their newest addition to the “Full Metal” lineup certainly doesn’t stray from the path. Revealed at this year’s Baselworld convention, the GMWB5000V fills the niche of the affordable collector’s watch while retaining a variety of the renowned line’s original technologies. A black aged IP treatment gives the watch a rugged, worn patina look, while traditional characteristics like an inner resin bumper to protect the internals, a stopwatch, multiple time zones, and an alarm keep you on top of your game, no matter where adventure takes you.
