Official Marketing Focus from Casio

The G-SHOCK “Square” is the most iconic model in their line. Even digital watch muggles instantly recognize it as a Casio. Since its introduction in 1983, the Japanese manufacturer has introduced more versions of the Square than ice cream flavors at Baskin Robbins (by a factor of 10). The GW-S5600-1 is a significant evolution of the classic Square – that isn’t available anywhere outside of Japan.
The following features are equipped: radio controlled, world time, chronograph, countdown timer, alarm, power reserve indicator, perpetual calendar, backlight, date, day, month.
