About the Watch in short. The Japanese released the DW-5610 series, which is aimed at fans of the square, classic G-Shock case in military style. The color scheme of the line is called “Utility Color”, which emphasizes the concept of watches for the style of clothing and your image. If we talk about some innovations, the DW-5610 received a rather interesting bezel. When you often saw the monotony of the case, but in DW-5610 we learned how to use the two-layer method of painting: separately for the bezel and separately for the rest of the case. Only usual electronic features: stopwatch [for as long as 24 hours], timer, alarm clock, calendar. Nothing supernatural, but at the same time very valuable and often used. The batteries last for 2 years. The watch also has electroluminescent backlight. The watch is quite compact [48.9 × 43.8 × 13.5 mm], which suits a lot of people.

Enjoy our G-Shock DW-5610 Watch Review

DW-5610SUS-5ER differs from its old predecessor. Fundamental changes are manifested in the appearance, unique bezel color, and available removable straps. Yes, the caliber has remained the same, but this does not make the watch old, but on the contrary proves the reliable Japanese perfection, where you are becoming a part of it since 1989.

Enjoy Japanese Unique Features in DW-5610!

*some images are about G-Shock 5000/5600 cases, but the technology, approaches, concepts and philosophy remains the same for the whole G-Shock Model Range

Hollow case structure. Based on a realization that “shocks are not transmitted inside a bouncing rubber ball,” the structure was designed to let the module float inside the case, relieving shocks transmitted from outside. Today, the module’s shock resistance is realized through further technical innovations. But the revolutionary tough structure that gave G-SHOCK its origin began here.

All-directional covering. If the watch is dropped, the protruding bezel fully enclosing it absorbs the shock, protecting the buttons directly connected to the module and alleviating shocks from all directions. The bezel also guards the surface of the crystal. The band is curved stiffly at the point of connection with the case, moreover, enabling it to serve as a shock absorber and prevent direct shocks to the back of the case.

Protective cushioning of key parts. The crystal oscillator and other critical parts inside the module are guarded individually by cushioning material. Any strong shock to the watch causes immediate distortion of the cushioning inside the module, preventing contact failure and malfunction.

Japan Quality. Constructed with genuine quality, CASIO products provide truly practicable applications in which functionality and beauty combine. The leading-edge LSI technologies and skilled craftsmanship that give life to CASIO watches exemplify the quality Japan boasts in the world marketplace.
For CASIO, “faith in manufacturing” refers to an inexorable advancement of digital technologies and an uncompromising commitment to fine craftsmanship. This faith engenders unparalleled performance that not only elevates CASIO watches as close as possible to perfection, but that actually changes their wearers’ lifestyles.
