G-Shock watches hardly need an introduction. Their appeal is obvious; they are one of the few products in the world that can call itself battle tested, and mean it literally. G-Shock watches haven’t adopted a rugged aesthetic as a marketing angle, they really have been, and continue to be used by deep sea divers, special forces soldiers, and astronauts.
Their unique look is a byproduct of being constructed to stand up to the punishing demands that these professions dole out to a watch, and still keep precise time.
G-SHOCK first revolutionized timekeeping with its innovative toughness back in 1983. The DW5600RB-2 recreates the First Blue (1991) color G-SHOCK watch that was sold outside of Japan. This model has a gold LCD, which is similar to the one used in the original design.
