Casio G-Shock DW-5700 Watches

About the Watch in short. 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.

Enjoy Japanese approaches to Tough and Functional Watches!

*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.

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.
