The design of the original model, which had not been made digital, provides blueprints for newly designed components. The variant hand shapes, triangular marker, index, decorative letters and numerals, and other such features are reproduced faithfully.

All-Original Beauty of Form

All-Original Beauty of Form

The watch’s “simple & minimal” design concept draws on the unique characteristics of its resin-molded form with features such as the slanted bezel with its curved outline that continues onto the band.

Perfect Circle Motif

Perfect Circle Motif

Embodying the“ simple & minimal” design, the perfect circle motif is adopted even for side buttons. The same historic originality informs features such as the angle of horizontally operated button shafts as well.

New Style

New Style [AW-500BB]

Components including the case, band, dial, hands and reverse LCD display all uniformly feature a single color. The adoption of a bar index lends the watch a simpler design.

Shock-Resistant Structure

Just like the AW-500, which upended conceptions of analog watches’ susceptibility to damage from shock, the watch ensures characteristic G-SHOCK shock resistance by employing hollow case construction and omnidirectional covering.

Improved Construction

Even lighter weight is achieved with the watch’s updated design featuring an inner case made of resin and back cover with panel construction. The shock-resistant design of the module serves to protect against electronic components’ detachment or breakage and watch hands’ falling out of alignment.

Evolution of Features

The watch realizes features including EL backlight and an approximately 7-year battery life. Such features offer even greater practical use.
