Casio G-SHOCK Recrystallized Series in Deep-Layer Hardened Stainless Steel

Casio G-SHOCK Recrystallized Series in Deep-Layer Hardened Stainless Steel

G-SHOCK 40th Anniversary Timepiece

Casio has released the G-SHOCK Recrystallized series which is designed to celebrate the 40th  anniversary of the G-SHOCK brand. The GMW-B5000PG and GMW-B5000PS are made even  tougher, employing a deep-layer hardening process*1 on stainless steel. 

*1 This process creates a hard layer by infusing gas into the surface of the steel, hardening the material itself rather than coating  it to harden the outside. 

The GMW-B5000PG and GMW-B5000PS are based on the full-metal GMW-B5000D, which  faithfully reproduces the iconic shape of the very first G-SHOCK, the DW-5000C. Both of these  40th anniversary models employ extremely hard stainless steel for exterior components such as  the bezel and band. 

With this latest advance in the continuous G-SHOCK evolution that began back in 1983, Casio has  developed a deep-layer hardening process specifically for stainless steel, achieving a material that is  approximately three times harder than ordinary stainless steel. Recrystallization adds a design  element, with the stainless steel heat-treated and recrystallized to create crystalline patterns against  a matte texture, giving the rugged appearance of fine metal fragments scattered across the surface.  Each individual component features a unique crystalline grain, delivering subtle differences in pattern,  color and luster for each timepiece. 

The gold ion-plated GMW-B5000PG and silver GMW-B5000PS are both incorporate special  features the 40th anniversary logo on the case back, the phrase “SINCE 1983” on the dial, and  a star on the Mode button on the lower left side of the case. 

Casio also released the DW-5040PG, which features a dial engraved with the words “PROJECT  TEAM ‘Tough,’” the name of the team that worked to develop the very first G-SHOCK. For this  reissue of the original G-SHOCK design, the deep-layer hardening process is applied to the case  back, buckle, band loop, and other metal components. Biomass plastics are used in the bezel and  band.
