G-SHOCK 40th Anniversary - RECRYSTALLIZED SERIES
The G-SHOCK 40th Anniversary RECRYSTALLIZED SERIES is a collection of limited-edition models from G-SHOCK, the timepiece brand celebrating its 40th anniversary of pushing the limits of toughness since 1983.
The DW-5000 was the first G-SHOCK model to hit the market in April 1983.
This special 40th-anniversary model is created using newly developed stainless steel recrystallization and deep hardening technology, which is applied to the first-generation DW-5000 and its full-metal counterpart, the GMW-B5000.
The DW-5040PG, a reissue of the first G-SHOCK model, has a recrystallized and deep-hardened screw-on case back, buckle, and band loop. The back of the watch has a black ion-plated (IP) finish, while the buckle and the band loop, which sports four stars representing the number "40," have a gold IP finish. The bezel and band are made of environmentally-friendly biomass plastic. The face proudly displays the text "PROJECT TEAM Tough," the name of the original G-SHOCK development team.
The GMW-B5000PS features a recrystallized and deep hardened bezel, band, and screw-on case back, and titanium carbide (TiC) coating to create a scratch-resistant yet bold design. The face is adorned with the words "SINCE 1983."
The GMW-B5000PG has a recrystallized and deep-hardened bezel, band, and screw-on case back, all of which have a gold IP finish. The face is decorated with the words "SINCE 1983".
The backs of all three models are engraved with the 40th-anniversary logo designed by Eric Hayes, and the lower left button is engraved with a star symbol, identifying these timepieces as special models.
