LINE UP

CONCEPT

A SQUARE CASE WITH A FULL-METAL SHOCK-RESISTANT STRUCTURE.

The first G-SHOCK model DW-5000C was born in 1983. Its symbolic square design is reinvented with a full-metal shock-resistant structure and the latest advanced functions, including Smartphone Link.

FEATURES

New Shock-resistant Structure

Fine-resin cushioning parts are inserted between the bezel case and the inner case. Besides achieving a highly accurate fit, this structure responds with reactive force to ease shocks when tiny protrusions in the cushioning material are compressed.

Original Square Design

The design of the first G-SHOCK model has been maintained continuously from the origin. Casio’s efforts in pursuit of universal usability have encompassed the structure with its undivided attention to shock resistance, the large LCD offering excellent visibility and the minimalist form that eschews any interference with wearing ease and comfort.

LSI Layout

The mounting position of the standard time radio wave antenna is calculated to ensure stable radio reception sensitivity inside a full-metal case. In this and other ways, the highly precise LSI design has solved the problems associated with a metal exterior and multi-functionality.

A Fusion of Strength and Beauty

After sculpting the form through repeated forging, cutting and polishing, artisans apply mirror polishing and hairline finishing to the surfaces in pursuit of flawless beauty. The case back surface is finely machined to remove any unevenness and assure an accurate fit with the cushioning parts.

Enhanced Visibility

The material employed for the solar panel has been changed from glass to an easily processed film. An aperture is opened in the center of the panel to suppress reflections of external light and improve the LCD’s visibility.

Legacy of the Universal Ratio

The LCD’s approximately 16:10 aspect ratio approaches the angle of human vision. Adopted in pursuit of clear visibility, this ratio has been handed down from one model to another since the origin to benefit from its closeness to the Golden Ratio, which is considered to represent the most beautiful proportions in nature..
