Casio G-Shock celebrates their 35th anniversary with this epic new launch

The tech-heads amongst us will remember the rigid, indestructible G-Shock aesthetic of their original watch launch, 35 years ago.

Fast-forward three-and-a-half decades and prepare to meet the modern take on a nostalgia-inducing classic – the new Casio G-Shock GMW-B5000 Back to Origin series.

In an age where smartwatches reign supreme, this new iteration in the G-Shock family fuses the same “toughness” for which the brand is known, but with a decidedly 2018 update.

Appearance-wise, these clever timepieces look akin to their functional predecessors, but upon closer inspection, offer all the mod-cons of a modern-day smartwatch.

Whether your primary concern is keeping up with the fash pack, or remain on the cutting-edge of technology, the new G-Shock GMW-B5000 has you covered.


The perfect finishing touch to any workday or weekend ensemble, this stylish wrist candy is available in either 35th anniversary gold or general edition silver. Mix metals to your liking or stick to what you know to remain on the cusp of this fashion trend. Plus, the iconic silhouette is complemented by a logo backplate styled by iconic graphic designer, Eric Haze.


Tech-heads will love the compatibility of syncing the GMW-B5000 with the G-Shock Connected app, meaning daylight saving times and time zones are automatically updated.

Using Bluetooth connectivity, you’ll be able to create alerts, set automatic time adjustments, and record stamp location data. We’re looking at you, frequent flyers…


Consider yourself a keen swimmer? Then you’ll be delighted to note the GMWB5000 is water-resistant for up to 200 metres. Ocean swim, anyone?!


Known for their toughness, the latest iteration in the G-Shock family offer full shock resistance due to the fine resin sandwiched between metal with impact resistance in mind.

The forgetful among us will also appreciate the phone finder function, allowing you to locate your missing phone via the GMW-B5000.

Discover the new GMW-B5000D-1 and GMW-B5000TFG-9 available from Loaded, Pascoes, Christies, G-Factory, and other leading G-Shock stockists.
