Casio G-Shock DW-5700 Watches

The representative of the old-school round format G-Shock, whose roots go back to the year 1987, when the Kasi men showed the world the first shock-resistant watches in a round case. The vintage feel and durability of the DW-5700 make the series one of the most popular G-Shock on the market. Despite its compact size [only 48.9 × 45.4 × 13.4 mm], the case is protected from shocks and falls no worse than more powerful-looking brothers. The information on the electronic display is visually divided into zones for easier reading. The basic functionality includes a stopwatch, a timer with an auto-repeat, an alarm clock, an hourly beep, world clock, a calendar and an electroluminescent backlight.

Official Marketing Focus from Casio

2018 will mark 35 years since G-SHOCK first revolutionized timekeeping with its innovative toughness back in 1983. To mark the occasion, CASIO is releasing the DW-5750E to bring back the look of a historical favorite under a back-to-original-basics theme.
The DW-5700C was originally released in 1987 as the first basic G-SHOCK model with a round design. It was not sold domestically in Japan, but it could be seen on the wrists of famous musicians around the globe, ultimately making the DW-5700C a classic worldwide hit. This model has been reissued a number of times in the past as well to mark special G-SHOCK occasions.
The design and other aspects of the original models have been reproduced for this new version. Basic model functions include stopwatch and timer, along with EL backlight and more.
