Many people who fall in love with G-Shock and start building a collection will eventually start thinking about getting the GW-5000, sometimes to the point of obsession. Others who are new to G-Shock may want a premium watch with a classic design that is a step above the typical model. The GW-5000 is a simple watch with a body that is based on the first G-Shock ever, the DW-5000C. Like the first G-Shock it has a screw-lock case back and is the only current G-Shock along with the Frogman that has this feature. It adds modern features like Tough Solar power and Multi-Band 6 atomic time-syncing. While its look is intentionally basic and its features are not the most advanced available, it is considered a “prestige” G-Shock because of its high price and because in addition to its screw-back with diamond-like carbon (DLC) coating, it has a full stainless steel case under the bezel while standard 5600 models have a plastic case. It also has a nicer overall finish than a 5600 model and uses a softer and more comfortable urethane band. The GW-5000 is exclusively made in Japan which accounts for its higher price. Only the most observant and knowledgeable G-Shock enthusiasts will recognise this watch on the street. While it won’t buy you instant status with the general public, owning the GW-5000 is one of the best ways to express your appreciation of G-Shock and its history.
