The debut of an icon.
Since the introduction of the inaugural G-SHOCK, the DW-5000C, in 1983, the brand has consistently embraced the challenge of continuous evolution. The shock-resistant construction, stemming from the developers' commitment to crafting an unbreakable watch, and the iconic streamlined form, a natural outcome of the pursuit of strength and toughness, exemplify Casio's dedication to advancement and tireless innovation. These principles persist in today's 5000 and 5600 G-SHOCK watches.
Fast forward to the year 2020, marking three decades since the milestone design launched. The introduction of the resin AW-500E and the metal AWM-500 represents not mere reissues, but rather the roots of an evolution, while retaining the essence of their Tough origin. With an unwavering commitment to creativity and innovation, the G-SHOCK brand consistently elevates itself to new heights.
