[G-Shock Ana-Digi] AWM-500D-1A8 — fashion elements and trendy street style

Based on the AW-500, the first G-SHOCK pointer watch launched in 1989, the durable stainless steel bezel and strap are upgraded to show the high-end texture appearance of all metal. By installing reinforced resin between the bezel and the case (Fine Resin)’s shock-absorbing structural parts maintain the impact-resistant structure that G-SHOCK is proud of under the metal appearance. The three-dimensional curved surface extends from the junction of the case to the third section, allowing the strap to bend and fit the wrist. The smooth arc design matches the round case more closely. The metal parts are processed with hairline and mirror respectively, which highlights the unique texture of metal in contrast. In the design of the dual pointer dial, the design features of the first-generation pointer models are reproduced from pointers, time markers to numbers. After PVD evaporation technology, the time markers and the metal appearance complement each other.
