Representing the modern equivalent of the original G-SHOCK watch that first made an appearance in 1983, the classic “Square” DW-5600 is an instantly recognizable icon of horology, and it serves as the foundation for numerous different limited editions and collaboration pieces. Combining two cultural legends from Japan that were both created during the mid-1980s, the G-SHOCK DW5600SMB-4 takes Casio’s famous rectangular case silhouette and infuses it with the spirit of Nintendo’s original SUPER MARIO BROS. video game to create an ultra-durable, feature-packed sports watch that offers a heavy dose of digital nostalgia.
Crafted from lightweight and impact-resistant resin, the case of the G-SHOCK x SUPER MARIO BROS. DW5600SMB-4 retains the classic and highly versatile proportions of the standard “Square” model, and it measures 43.8mm wide by 48.9mm lug-to-lug with an overall thickness of 13.4mm. The red resin bezel, brown strap, and light blue dial plate echo the colors of the original Nintendo video game, while the strap itself is adorned with graphics of Mario, and the font used for the dial plate is taken directly from the original 1985 Nintendo classic. Just as you would expect from a G-SHOCK, the SUPER MARIO BROS. DW5600SMB-4 features a durable mineral glass crystal protecting its fully-digital display, while a solid screw-on stainless steel caseback adorned with a graphic from the game helps provide users with an ample 200 meters of water resistance.
At the heart of the SUPER MARIO BROS. G-SHOCK DW5600SMB-4 is Module No. 3229, which features all of the usual multi-function digital sport watch features, such as a stopwatch, countdown timer, full auto-calendar, alarm, 12-hour and 24-hour timekeeping formats, plus an electro-luminescent backlight. Additionally, activating the backlight on the watch reveals a hidden Mario “1UP” graphic in red against the green background glow of the digital display, while the box and metal tin both feature red and white graphics from the famous 1980s Nintendo game.

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.
