Based on the iconic 5600 models inspired by the very first G-SHOCKs, the GM5600 is a tried-and-true classic, now with a robust metal shroud. While always tough, the metal exterior adds some reassuring heft and visually sharp lines. Additionally, the metal shroud allows for interesting coloration and finishing not found on resin models.
The GM5600 line represents some of the most easy to wear and compact watches in the entire G-SHOCK range. Measuring in at 43.2mm wide, 49.6mm long, and 12.9mm thick, the GM5600 will remain comfortable through nearly any activity. The integrated resin band keeps the watch securely affixed to your wrist throughout the day. You’ll appreciate the hard-wearing specs like 200m of water resistance, recessed buttons, and of course the shock resistance. If you’re looking for a watch to wear that you never have to worry about, the GM5600 is the one.
Inside the watch, you’ll find Casio’s 3229 module. It’s one of the simpler and more straightforward modules to operate. Basic functions like programmable alarms, an hourly time signal, countdown timer, and stop watch make operation quick and easy. An EL Backlight with Afterglow lights the face up in the dark, making the watch usable in nearly any condition.

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.
