My favorite G-Shock… Hint, it’s the vintage G-Shock DW-5900

My favorite G-Shock of all time is the class ic G-Shock DW-5900. It’s the first G-Shock that I ever got and I even still have it. I got a new band and bezel from Brazil and it looks pretty good. I don’t wear it and there is no battery in it but I like having it. I am pretty sure that the date will not be correct after a certain year, but that’s OK with me. Maybe I can sell it for $5 million dollars someday. What do you think?

This watch took me all over the world and never failed me. The only thing that I wish this watch had was a light. The DW-5900 Revival has a light and I think that will be my next watch purchase.

G-Shock DW-5900, it’s a classic/vintage G-Shock and my favorite G-Shock of all.

Specifications (as I remember them)

  • Stopwatch
  • Countdown timer
  • 12/24 hour
  • Analog and digital readouts
  • Water resistant down to 200 meters
  • Alarm

Here’s a video about the original.

CASIO G-SHOCK MUDMASTER GWG-1000-1A3JF MENS JAPAN IMPORT

About G-SHOCK
CASIO’s shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch is synonymous with toughness, born from the developer Mr. Ibe’s dream of ‘creating a watch that never breaks’. Over 200 handmade samples were created and tested to destruction until finally in 1983 the first, now iconic G-SHOCK hit the streets of Japan and began to establish itself as ‘the toughest watch of all time’. Each watch encompasses the 7 elements; electric shock resistance, gravity resistance, low temperature resistance, vibration resistance, water resistance, shock resistance and toughness. The watch is packed with Casio innovations and technologies to prevent it from suffering direct shock; this includes internal components protected with urethane and suspended timekeeping modules inside the watch structure. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve, continuing to support on Mr. Ibe’s mantra “never, never give up.”

3rd post about restoring my G-Shock DW-5900 (failure)

So I tried to restore my G-Shock DW-5900 that I bought on E-bay. Unfortunately it came with a heavy perfume/cologne smell that wouldn’t go away. I tried to remove it with all kinds of materials and the smell never went away. I also ruined the electronic internals of the watch by soaking it in the wrong liquid. So that project went into the trash. Stay tuned for something new in the world of G-Shocks.
