Like many exquisite things (hint, hint), the Casio G-Shock watch was born in 1983. Designed by Casio engineers as an unbreakable time machine, it followed the so called “Triple 10”-concept: the watch was meant to survive a fall from a height of ten meters, to withstand ten bar water pressure and to have a life span of 10 years with just one battery. Since its launch we have seen many versions and comebacks of this initial version. But now, for the first time and for the 35thanniversary of the brand, G-Shock launches four full metal versions made from steel.

Two versions are available in silver metal, one with a black resin bracelet and inverted display, the other with a stainless steel bracelet and a bright display. A third version appears in a shiny black gunmetal look (it is limited to 500 pieces worldwide). But of course – quelle surprise! – we are especially fond of the most pricey fourth version, the shiny gold model with the slightly less glamorous name “GMW-B5000TFC-1DR” (you cannot fight expensive taste).
