If you’re after a watch that makes a bold statement and has plenty of class, then look no further than the G-Shock Limited Edition All-Metal Series.
This collection was released to coincide with the 35th anniversary of the original G-Shock. Since it’s first release G-Shock has gone on to become a cultural icon and has built a strong community of die-hard collectors around the globe.
The All-Metal series breaks away from the traditional G-Shock mould, which usually features watches made from resin or rubber. The only exceptions to this, are the resin band on the GMW-B5000G-2, GMW-B5000G-1, GMW-B5000KL-9 and GMW-B5000-1D models.
If you are lucky enough to have one of these G-Shocks on your wrist, or if you are admiring someone else’s, you will instantly notice the serious visual impact. But don’t stop there, like all G-Shock watches, the spec list is incredible and will leave you asking what these watches don’t do.
Some specs worth mentioning include:
- Solar Powered
- LED Backlight
- World Time
- Shock Resistant
- 200-metres water resistance
- Low battery alert
- Bluetooth connection
One of the most impressive features of the All-Metal series is the Bluetooth connectivity. The ‘G-Shock Connected’ app is available on both Apple and Android devices and is an extremely easy way to manage time zones and set alarms.

As all digital watch lovers know, one pain point is the time-consuming task of setting the time. G-Shock has solved this problem and it now only takes a few seconds through the G-Shock Connected app.
From The Watch Factory’s experience, the All-Metal Series is proving to be a true collector’s item for both G-Shock loyalists and watch lovers.
If you find yourself frequently flying abroad or if you are after a watch that you can wear on both your weekend adventure and into the office for your 9-5 job, then this is the watch for you.
Overall, the All-Metal Series lives up to the G-Shock reputation of being amongst the toughest watches on the market.
Currently the silver GMWB5000D-1D, the gold-toned GMWB5000GD-9D and the resin band GMWB5000-1D are selling out in record time. If you wish to add one of these Limited Edition G-Shocks to your collection, we recommend you act quickly before they sell out again.
