It all started with a developer's conviction to create a watch that would not break even if dropped, and a reckless challenge that overturned common sense at the time. Over 200 prototypes have been repeated, and about two years have been spent, and the shock-resistant structure has been completed. It is the birth of technology that plays a central role in toughness. Since then, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve. Structure, material, function. In pursuit of further toughness from all sides.

★★★★★ Worth every penny
Post date : 15/08/2019
If you are wondering whether this watch is worth the asking price, I can confirm that it absolutely is. While there are many other cheaper models available, the quality of the entire product is head and shoulders above the others. The resin used in the strap is far more comfortable than the 5610 version and the extra weight coupled with the screw back casing gives the watch a more solid feeling when worn. I already own the 5610 and will continue to use it for work as it takes a beating due to being a firefighter. Not that this watch couldn’t take it, because I have no doubt that it can and in time I will probably wear it for everything. But being new, it seems to nice to wear for work just yet. On a final note, this watch also seems a bit larger than the 5610 which is no bad thing either.

★★★★★ Quality separated this from the normal version - you get what you pay for
Post date : 8/08/2019
Second one I’ve bought - don’t think this is the same as the normal versions for s third of its price cuz it’s not - everything about this watch is different , the texture, the way it fits, and Hugs the wrist, the quality and clarity of the writing ... this watch is special .... I’m even think of getting an extra one just as a back up.As soon as I unpacked it my partner tried it on and dropped it !!! I could have strangled her but thankfully not even a scratch lol

★★★★★ Premium Watch with a Classic Design
Post date : 12/07/2019
I am an avid fan of Casio watches and own several G Shocks as well as several Pro Treks. This GW5000 arrived today and I was pleasantly surprised how much I liked it and the quality feel of the watch. I read several articles and watched a few youtube videos before I made the purchase. I've included some links below.Here are my thoughts & impressions of this watch. It has some nice heft to it with the solid stainless steel body. The DLC coating and mirror finish on the back is very cool. The soft urethane band is really nice and a welcome upgrade from some of the stiffer, uncomfortable resin bands on the less expensive Casios. It really is a nice wearing watch due to the softer rubber on the band. Having the atomic timekeeping and tough solar is also a wonderful upgrade from the base model. It is a smaller wearing watch then I'm used to with my other G Shocks and Pro Treks. The display is also smaller and the buttons are recessed and difficult to press with your fingers. You need to use your fingernail to get at them and they are small compared to the newer models. The light only stays on for 2 seconds and is not adjustable. The watch lacks a lot of the features of the new, less expensive ABC watches with the multi sensors. So, why is this $300 watch worth having? It's a really nice, updated, premium version of the original G Shock form 1983, & if you are a G Shock fan and can appreciate what these watches are....it's a must for your collection. You are paying for the exclusivity and design and custom japanese build. I didn't need it, it doesn't do what the other watches that I own will do, but I really enjoy knowing that I have it and get a kick out of wearing it. It was worth the price of admission.Check out these links:[...][...]

★★★★★ Hard to describe the appeal - but I like it
Post date : 8/07/2019
I've owned this and it's cheaper cousin the DW-5000. There's definitely a fit-and-finish element to the watch that is hard to describe unless you're holding them. It feels heavier, but not uncomfortably so. And, since this is my only watch, I like that the dark gray colour doesn't look as out of place in the office as the bomb-squad-black of the cheaper version.The $90 version lasted only a year before it began resetting randomly and the case started separating. Maybe that one was an unfortunate dud. But, I like the look and function enough that I decided to shell out 3X for the Japanese market version. So far, I'm glad I did.

★★★★★ Not your standard G-Shock
Post date : 4/07/2019
Most people would say you'd be crazy to pay $300 for a G-Shock. Well this isn't your run-of-the-mill watch you get from your big box store. The GW-5000 is a premium digital watch from Casio. The watch is "Made In Japan" so you can expect the utmost quality. It's got all the bells and whistles you need: world time, atomic clock syncing, 24 hour chronograph, 5 alarms, countdown timer, tough solar, and stainless steel case. Like other reviewers have mentioned the watch bands are a bit softer than traditional G-Shocks. The watch itself is square shaped and the digits are crisp and easy to see. I was able to use this watch on a Eurotrip and the watch synced accordingly throughout the time zone changes. Sure there are other G-Shocks with the same watch functions but none are built like the GW-5000.

★★★★★ Casio G Shock GW-5000-1JF tough solar Multi Band watch
Post date : 25/04/2019
The Casio G-Shock, GW-5000-1JF is one of the upper top line G Shock square watches made by Casio and it is expensive: priced at approximately $320.00. The watch resembles the Casio G Shock line of square watches that are much less expensive.However, this watch is made of premium, high quality materials. It has stellar build quality and is made entirely in Japan, including the watch band clasp. In addition, the watch wrist band is made of a softer rubber/polyurethane material.There is a noticeable weight to this watch, much more so than the Casio GWM5610 G Shock. This is because the watch has a stainless steel back case. These are the many reasons why this watch is expensive compared to other Casio watches in the G Shock product line.The GW-5000-1JF has received a solid history of positive consumer reviews and I noticed that the price of the watch does not generally fluctuate: The price seems to increase at times, never having reduced pricing or occasionally going on sale. This shows that this watch is in high demand and it is well regarded.The watch has a long established history and is a successor model with the Japanese made Casio G Shocks that were made in the 1980's.The GW-5000-1JF has a plain, conservative, and utilitarian appearing watch face with virtually no color present on the entire watch face. There is a very small red colored dot at the bottom middle of the watch face. The watch presents a very clean, uncluttered, rugged and attractive appearance.The watch is a oval shaped, medium sized square G-Shock, a bit thicker in the watch case than the GWM5610. The watch presents a low profile appearance and presence. In fact, due to the conservative and unremarkable appearance, this watch will not be noticed. If you are looking for a attention getting timepiece, this watch is may not be for you. This watch is made for quality, not attention.This watch has the standard features that the Casio G-Shock product line also has. This watch is atomic timekeeping, solar powered, has day, date, time, (standard or military) world time, multiple alarms, stopwatch, countdown timer and back lighting. The four function buttons are reasonably reached and activated without too much effort. This G-Shock is waterproof up to six hundred feet. The watch also has the durable Casio 3159 module and comes with a one year warranty.The letters and numbers on the watch face are dark black color: clear, crisp and easy to read. The green colored background is a darker shade than the GWM5610.The English version of the operation manual can be obtained on Casio.com. As mentioned earlier in this review, this watch is made entirely in Japan.Pros: This top line Casio G Shock square is made of stellar quality materials and outstanding build quality. It has all the standard features of the G Shock solar powered atomic timekeeping watches. The entire watch is made in Japan and is a primary reason why the watch is expensive. The consumer reviews of this watch have been very positive. If you are a Casio watch collector or want the best G Shock square watch made, this is a watch to purchase.Cons: This is an expensive watch. The price of the watch is approximately $320.00. The similar Casio GWM5610 is priced at approximately $100.00. Of course, the GWM5610 does not have the top tier construction materials and is made in Thailand.Conclusion: This is an expensive, Japanese made, high quality Casio G Shock square tough solar atomic time piece. If you want the best of the product line, constructed of quality materials and stellar construction build, then you may want to have this watch for standard everyday use or for a Casio watch collection.If however, you can't justify the price of this watch, you may want to research and purchase the less expensive Casio GWM5610. It is not the top line G Shock watch, but has all the basic features.The delivery from Japan to California was much quicker than anticipated, it only took about a week. The packaging was excellent.Jon Green

★★★★★ Insanely Awesome!
Post date : 22/04/2019
I basically bought this watch because it reminds me of my 1992 DW-5600C module 901 which I am restoring. I would give this watch 6 stars if I could. The fit and finish is amazing and exudes fine quality. The solid highly polished gun metal finished casing and screw back is fitting for a high end Japanese watch. The Japanese made strap, buckel and bezel are from another world in texture and feel. It is disguised in what an untrained eye would think is a cheap $40 run of the mill G Shock. However, a G Shock connoisseur would know immediately what beholds them. It is a descendent of one of the greatest watches of all time - DW-5600C. It is almost impossible to see the seam from the band and bezel - most won't see it. Can I dare say that this descendent is superior to the DW-5600C?

★★★★★ Great but do check for any faults when first received.
Post date : 4/03/2019
Great watch, unfortunately the one delivered to me had a ding on the side on the front face.Other than that the watch looks amazing, simple, sturdy, has a bit of weight on it. The buttons are a little hard to press but isn't that big a deal, I'm assuming it is built that way to resist shocks and improve water resistance.Will be returning this slightly scratched one in exchange for a fresh one.Edit: Had to order in this watch 3 times, the first two times there were scratches on the face and bands. 3rd time's the charm! Loving the look, feel and use of this watch. The digits and big and bold, very clear display showing all the information. The black matte style adds a touch of class to the watch. Although the price is on the higher side (2 times the other similar models), if you are a g shock fan, this classic look added with solar powered tech which will last you 10 years and beyond, in my opinion it is a well worth investment for the function and style it gives you. I feel good every time I wear it, semi formal with function and a bit of extra weight.This wrist band is on the softer side and I have scratches on the clasp area after 2 weeks of use, doesn't affect function but I suppose it's a sacrifice of the softer rubber feel against your wrist.

★★★★★ Top-quality Square Classic
Post date : 26/02/2019
Hard to beat a classic square G-Shock for daily use or as a beater watch. I have many mechanical watches, but seem to migrate back to a simple G-Shock for daily or around-the-house use. Really fun and the solid steel case brings a bit of weight so it feels like a real watch, not plasticky. Highly recommended to any G-Shock fan. If you want to save some money, get the GW-5610 for under $100 (same module, so same features), but if you can stretch to this, I think it's worth it.

★★★★★ An Excellent, beautiful watch, but not without some flaws and peculiarities
Post date : 20/02/2019
I really loved this watch, but ultimately decided to return and just continue using my basic $50 DW-5600-E that I picked up at a big box store (which by the way is no slouch, with at rating of 4.6 and over 1,550 reviews). Here are some of the differences and my impressions, and why I decided to return:- Looks: Absolutely gorgeous watch with tremendous build quality. The epitome of "rugged good looks". If you are a fan of this classic G-Shock model then this alone may be reason enough for you to buy. I love the cleaner look on the face; no colors and less busy. The watch itself definitely has a little more weight (74 grams) than the DW-5600-E (52 grams), obviously due to the stainless steel casing. Many reviewers have mentioned the "diamond-like coating" or whatever. I admit it looks beautiful but the fact is that this part is facing your wrist when wearing, so it's not like you see it. But you do see the front, and the clean, non-colored lines just look awesome. That said, the DW-5600 has a cleaner look than some of the other versions in this series, and so is adequate.- Comfort. Both watches are comfortable, but the GW-5000-1JF does have a more comfortable band. The rubber is just a little softer, more "supple". This said, the DW-5600-E is certainly not uncomfortable, and in fact due to the lighter weight it is arguably more wearable 24/7 (though this is subjective).- Atomic time syncing. The GW-5000 has it, the DW-5600 doesn't. I really had to think a lot about this one, and how important this was to me. On the one hand, it is great to know that you never have to reset your watch, and that it always has the correct time. When I received the GW-5000, multiple times I tried to manually sync but was having difficulty, likely due to clouds in my area at the time. However that same night the time updated automatically at around 2:00 AM, in spite of the clouds. Indeed, about 25%+ of the manual is dedicated to explaining all the conditions where the syncing may not work. But based on my experience, as well as other reviewers, I do not expect there would be many problems with this. As for my DW-5600, two weeks ago to the day I manually set the time to atomic time. Two weeks later it reads 1 second fast. This translates to approximately 2 seconds per month and 24 seconds per year. I decided I can live with that, as it literally takes just seconds to reset the time.- Solar power. Again the GW-5000 has it, the DW-5600 does not. Again it seems to be a cool feature. But then I began to consider a few other things. Multiple reviewers on the DW-5600 say they got 5+ years out of the battery, and then went to Wal-Mart or wherever to get another and replaced themselves. On the other hand, the GW-5000 (a) may last 10-15 years but (b) would still eventually need a replacement battery and (c) which would no doubt be more expensive, (d) and would likely need to be ordered, and (e) would then need to be taken to a jeweler to replace, when at the same time (f) in 10-15 years who knows what watches will be available, including the latest version of this G-Shock, in which case I may want to replace the whole watch anyway!. So again I decided that this was a cool feature but overall not an important one.- Alarms. The GW-5000 has 5 alarms including a snooze. Personally I do not have a need for this many alarms, but I can certainly see applications for this. That said, I would love to have the "snooze" feature, which the DW-5600 does not have. The fact is that on both watches the alarm is simply not very loud, nor is there any vibration feature. Because of this I would never trust this watch to wake me up, perhaps not even with a snooze feature. For this reason I decided that the differences in alarm features were not important enough for me to keep the GW-5000.- Countdown timer. This is where things start to get a little interesting, if not outright peculiar: When setting the timer on the GW-5000, the controls allow bi-directional capabilities. In other words, if the timer is currently set to 10 minutes and you want to reset it for 5 minutes, you can go directly to "5" (and if you accidentally pass it can use another button to go back up). In this same scenario on the DW-5600 however, to change the timer from 10 minutes to 5 minutes you can only go one direction (up), which means you have to pass through 11 up to 59, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 and finally back to 5 (and if you accidentally pass 5 you have to do this again). For this reason alone I almost kept the GW-5000, because the implementation of setting the timer is just so much better. And I use the timer all the time, such as when I'm on the grill, when I'm allocating play time remaining for my 4 year old, to when I need to put my ear plugs in before descending on a plane. HOWEVER... there are two areas where the DW-5600 timer features actually exceeds the GW-5000: (a) The DW-5600 allows you to set seconds (for example, set to 10 minutes and 45 seconds). Curiously the GW-5000 only allows minutes; (b) As with other G-Shock models, when changing modes in the DW-5600 the time is still visible in all modes. It is absolutely baffling that in this high end, expensive GW-5000 model that it is not! This to me is a tremendous flaw as there is no reference to the time when in timer moode. And I do not want to hear that Casio is just "being faithful to the original design from decades ago" or whatever, because atomic time and solar power were also not in the original design, yet Casio saw fit to update this glorious model with the latest technology. But for some reason on these features they did not. Shrug.- Light. The GW-5000 has a nice feature where if you tilt the wrist, the light will come on (and they've even made it where this only happens in low-light conditions, which saves battery power; a very nice feature/design). The DW-5600 does not have this featue. However, again there is a deficiency here when compared with the DW-5600: Where the light on the DW-5600 will stay on for 3 seconds, the light on the GW-5000 will only stay on for 2 seconds. I suppose that there is a subjective element here and that some may consider the shorter time to be preferable. However, I personally had problems with this. There were several times when the light just wasn't on long enough for me to see the time. I've never had this problem with the DW-5600. Also there is no way (on either watch) to change this setting to a longer or shorter time, which is a shame. Again, your mileage may very on this, but it was at times a struggle for me. Also, know that on virtually all Casio G-Shock models there is no way to keep the light on in any mode when making changes, nor to keep the light on. So for example, if you're all tucked into bed and remember that you need to set the alarm, be prepared to get up and turn the light on so you can see to set the alarm. Which to me is quite peculiar and dysfunctional.So, the bottom-line is this: The GW-5000-1JF is an absolutely beautiful watch. If this watch for you represents some sort of nostalgic trip to the past, or if you just want the best looking watch in this model, then this is your watch. It is a combination of beautiful and rugged. But the fact is this: For $150-180 you can buy a similar model with exactly the same features, and also made in Japan (see GW-M5610-1BJF or GW-M5610BC-1JF). These do not include a steel case however (though they are lighter). So basically, you are paying an extra $150 for the steel case, and the cleaner look.As much as I loved the watch, I just couldn't justify the steeper price, especially when there were a couple of significant areas where I considered it deficient to my DW-5600. Barring these deficiencies, I would have kept the watch. I just like the look and feel of it so much.For the future, I hope Casio will consider correcting these differences, and also perhaps adding in a vibration feature (but one that is more powerful than the GD-350, which was too weak).One last note to an already too long review: My wrists are approximately 7.25". When I first put this watch on it looked small. I had been wearing something with a slightly bigger face. However, after wearing a couple of days the look really grew on me, and it no longer seemed too small. I do wish the face was about 20% larger, but unless you just have huge wrists I wouldn't be concerned about the size. It's a great looking watch, tough and rugged looked but more subdued than some of the other G-Shock models.Good luck and peace be with you.Chris
