Plenty of tech has made its way into the GMWB5000, including a Multi Band 6 radio control to ensure precise timekeeping and Bluetooth for connectivity to your smart device. Though it’s not immediately apparent, this is also amongst G-SHOCK’s “Tough Solar” powered watches. On a full charge it’s rated to last 10 months, and 22 months when stored in a dark location with the power save function on. Other features include world time, alarm functionality, hourly time signal, stopwatch, and a countdown timer. If you were looking for a tough watch, they don’t come tougher than G-SHOCK.

G-SHOCK was born from a simple idea — a watch should not break when dropped. Back in 1983, the original square-shaped DW-5000C was created after Kikuo Ibe witnessed a child bouncing a rubber ball. It struck him that a watch floating within a rubber case would be impervious to shocks. After a bunch of testing and design with toughness in mind, the brand was born. Nearly 35 years and hundreds of models later, G-SHOCK is still best known for being some of the toughest, hard-wearing watches that money can buy.
