Casio G-SHOCK has announced an updated model of the GWB5600BC-1B.
Featuring a traditional square face that nods to G-SHOCK’s original timepiece from 1983, the new timepiece boasts an all-new composite resin band for a light-weight, durable structure. With an upscale, all-metal appearance, the watch comes in a matte-black colorway – perfect for the coming winter months.
Created with the brand’s core ethos of “Absolute Toughness” in mind, this is the first GWB5600 model to feature the lightweight and extremely durable band material of composite resin. With stainless steel built inside the resin links, the band boasts the durability and sleek appearance of other metal G-SHOCK watches.
The GWB5600BC-1B also includes other premium technical features such as G-SHOCK’s Multi-Band 6 and Bluetooth® connectivity for two-way time sync functionality, as well as Tough Solar technology – rendering it capable of self-charging even with low sun exposure.
The model also comes equipped with G-SHOCK technology such as:
– 200M water resistance and shock resistance
– 4 daily alarms
– World Time (39 TZ + 39 Cities)
– Target alarm
– 1/100th stopwatch and countdown timer
– Full auto calendar
