Casio G-Shock GM-5600 Watches

Representative of the iconic G-Shock square form factor with steel casing. Thus, the Japanese decided to give fans of the high-impact direction an opportunity to enjoy metal in their favorite case, while the price tag of the model is quite affordable – about $ 250. The inside of the case is made of polymer to absorb shock and reduce the total weight of the watch, and both parts of the strap are removable – the replacement process takes a matter of seconds. The capabilities of the GM-5600 module almost completely coincide with the DW-5600 – a stopwatch, world clock, timer, alarm clock, calendar and backlight with a blinking function.
