5600, a number with special meaning for G-Shock, as it's used only in the names of models that have inherited the DNA of the very first G-Shock among all the thousands that have succeeded it. The square design symbolises the developer’s belief that he could create a watch which would not break even if dropped, and represents the final form every G-Shock aims to achieve. Today after 35 years of evolution, this tough spirit remains as resilient as ever, and is still the source of G-Shock ’s indomitable strength.
A protruding configuration adopted for the case and bezel provides protection against shocks resulting from drops in any direction. Also, the band in a curved shape acts as a shock absorber, thus guarding the back of the case from direct shocks.
