Windup Watch Shop’s Latest Drop Of G-SHOCKS - Just in Time For The Holidays
Words by WIndup Watch Shop

Every watch collection out there can benefit from a G-SHOCK. They’re tough as nails, reliable, and just plain work. No matter what you throw at them, they just manage to keep running. Whether you’re into video games, love a modern sleek look, or perhaps you want something that reminds you of candy, there’s a G-SHOCK for you. This week we’ve added four rock-solid models to the Windup Watch Shop, each with their own unique design and set of features…and just in time for the Holidays. 


The G-SHOCK x ERIC HAZE 40th anniversary collaboration debuts the limited edition GMWB5000EH-1 that comes to life as a full metal timepiece rooted in the iconic DW5000C, the very first G-SHOCK model. This nod to the past modernizes the classic silhouette with stainless steel construction, urban design sensibilities, and functionality of G-SHOCK in 2023, celebrating the rich and extensive history of the brand. A must-have for watch aficionados and collectors, the exclusive timepiece features the 40th anniversary logo mark on the screw-lock case back cover, finished in a DLC (diamond-like carbon) coating, as well as HAZE’s infamous logo illuminating the back of the face display all housed in special packaging designed by ERIC HAZE himself.


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. 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.


To kick off the celebration of its 40th anniversary, G-SHOCK has created two new Flare Red models that feature striking colorways consisting of orange, red and black, with unique multicolor luminous carbon bezels that are inspired by the explosions on the sun’s surface. Based upon the popular Land Mudmaster and MTGB3000 series, the two new G-SHOCK 40th Anniversary Flare Red models are both produced as limited editions, and both versions offer the same industry-leading shock resistance and 200-meter depth ratings that define all modern G-SHOCK watches. The G-SHOCK Flare Red GWG2040FR-1A uses the popular Land Mudmaster for its foundation, and it features a durable carbon and resin case that measures 54.4mm wide by 61.2mm lug-to-lug, with an overall thickness of 16.1mm.

Meanwhile, the G-SHOCK MTGB3000FR1A is the 40th Anniversary Flare Red model that is based upon the MTGB3000 series, and it features a carbon and stainless steel case that measures 50.9mm wide by 51.9mm lug-to-lug, with an overall thickness of just 13.2mm. Powering the Flare Red MTGB3000FR1A is the brand’s advanced Module No. 5672, which offers a fully analog display, while still providing all of the same advanced digital features that you have come to expect from a G-SHOCK.


Just like their larger G-SHOCK counterparts, the BABY-G lineup offers feature-packed designs that place an emphasis on style and durability. Measuring 42.6mm wide by 16.4mm thick with an overall lug-to-lug distance of 45.9mm, the case of the HARIBO BABY-G BG-169HRB-7 is made from a white semi-transparent resin to create a look and feel that is reminiscent of HARIBO’s famous gummy candies. Meanwhile the buttons, dial plate, and case accents appear in the same colors as the flavors of HARIBO Goldbears candies (raspberry, lemon, apple, and orange).
