This model is full-metal version of the DW-5000 base model which represents a refinement of the hollow case structure to achieve an even higher level of shock resistance. Fine resin shock absorbers between the metal bezel and case created a shock resistant structure for a full-metal case. Innovative new band connections, which are components subjected to the strongest shock levels, add additional center lugs that lessen the load on the band pins. The screw back case, with a highly wear resistant diamond like coating (DLC), gives the watch a feeling of heft.
A film solar cell maintains display clarity and an STN-LCD ensures easy reading of display information, even from an angle. The text and main display layout of the face was painstakingly designed in a way to make it virtually identical to the original base model. Use of the latest-version engine achieves high-density component mounting without affecting the size of the finished timepiece. The external design and internal module advances packed into a full-metal configuration of the GMW-B5000 makes it a model that truly represents the promise of G-SHOCK.
Function-wise, this model is designed for outstanding timekeeping accuracy using Bluetooth® data communication and Multiband 6, which supports automatic time setting adjustment based on one of six time calibration signals around the globe. Time information can be acquired from an internet time server using the G-SHOCK Connected*1 app running on a smartphone.
Other functions include Tough Solar in combination with CASIO original power saving technology that delivers a stable supply of power, high-brightness Full Auto LED illumination, World Time, and more. The day of the week indicator can be configured for display in any of six different languages.*2 Multiband 6 supports automatic time setting adjustment based on one of six time calibration signals around the globe, which helps to ensure accurate timekeeping no matter where your travels take you.
