GW-B5600 and Japanese approaches to Tough and Functional Watches

Enjoy only the most distinctive features of G-Shock GW-B5600 Series. The Watch belongs to ORIGIN Model Range and first appeared in 2019.

Iconic original design. The design is inherited from the first G-SHOCK model. From the exterior styling to the LCD ratio, it boasts a perfect balance that can be considered the final shape as well as the origin.

Vapor deposition dial. Metallic blue coloring is deposited by vapor deposition processing on the outer periphery of the dial. It presents a unique glowing color ring reflected on an inverted LCD.

Super Illuminator (high-brightness full auto LED backlight). An LED backlight illuminates the LCD with high-brightness light.

Accurate timekeeping with Bluetooth® + Radio-controlled. Time correction is conducted by Bluetooth® communications in conjunction with standard time radio waves. Tough Solar power provides stable operation of multiple functions.

Film solar panel. The material employed for the solar panel has been changed from glass to an easily processed film. An aperture is opened in the center of the panel to suppress reflections of external light and improve the LCD’s visibility.
