These new 35th Anniversary GLACIER GOLD models mark the 35 years since G-SHOCK first started on its mission of unmatched timekeeping toughness back in 1983.
The bezels, cases, and bands of these watches are made of clear semi-transparent material in designs embodying motifs that combine the harsh conditions you might expect to encounter on a freezing glacier with the image of G-SHOCK toughness that is able to stand up to such conditions. The clear semi-transparent style was first used back is 1996 for the G-SHOCK Dolphin & Whale models, and the global popularity of this design makes it an important turning point in G-SHOCK history.
Faces, buckles, buttons, screws, back covers and other components have a gold ion plated (IP) finish.
The high transparency of the clear semi-transparent resin enhances the gold colors to create gorgeous designs that are befitting special 35th Anniversary designs.
Base models are the original square face DW-5000, the DW-5700, which has been revived for the 35th anniversary, the bestselling GA-710, which was a new addition to the already-popular BIG CASE standard model, and the mid-size GA-800.
The DW-5035 and DW-5735 feature a screw back, which gives them a hefty feel, and the back covers of all four models are impressed with a logo that identifies them as 35th Anniversary models.
