G-SHOCK Recrystallised Series
40th Anniversary


Project Team Tough

Discover the newest additions to the 40th Anniversary line-up – the Recrystallised Series.

A nod to “PROJECT TEAM: Tough", the team that worked to develop the very first G-SHOCK.


G-SHOCK Project Team: Tough

G-SHOCK Latest Steel Technology

The latest technological advancement from G-SHOCK, the steel on these styles have gone through a deep-layer hardening process that makes them approximately three times harder than ordinary stainless steel.

G-SHOCK Recrystallisation Design

Recrystallisation also adds a design element, with the stainless steel heat-treated to create crystalline patterns against a matte texture, giving these styles a rugged appearance.

G-SHOCK GMWB5000 Back Case

The silver GMWB5000PS and gold ion-plated GMWB5000PG both incorporate special features — the 40th anniversary logo on the case back, the phrase “SINCE 1983” on the dial, and a star on the Mode button on the lower left side of the case.

G-SHOCK DW5040PG Watch

The DW5040PG features a dial engraved with the words “PROJECT TEAM ‘Tough,’” the name of the team that worked to develop the very first G-SHOCK. For this reissue of the original G-SHOCK design, the deep-layer hardening process is applied to the case back, buckle, band loop, and other metal components. Biomass plastics are used in the bezel and band.
