A number with special meaning for G-SHOCK. It is 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 that is said to symbolize the origin of all G-SHOCK provides evidence of the tireless efforts and continuous innovation born from a developer’s belief that he could create a watch that 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. It is still the source of G-SHOCK’s indomitable strength.
Automatically deactivates the Auto EL backlight function when surrounding light is sufficient, and activates it under dim light or dark conditions.
Shock-resistant construction protects against impact and vibration.
A solar cell provides power for operation.
Radio signal reception (EU, USA, Japan, China)
Whether in Europe, North America and Japan or in the outer reaches of Canada, Central America and China - once the watch has been set to the local time, it receives the relevant signal and shows the correct time wherever you are. In many countries, it also sets itself automatically to summer and winter time.
World time function
Displays the current time in major cities and specific areas around the world.
Stopwatch function - 1/100 sec. - 24 hours
Elapsed time, split time and final time are measured with 1/100-sec accuracy. The watch can measure times of up to 24 hours.
Timer - 1/1 min. - 24 hours
For fans of precision: the countdown timers help you to remember specific or recurring events by giving off an audible signal at a preset time. The time can be set to the nearest minute and up to 24 hours in advance. Ideal for people who need to take medicines every day or those who do interval training.
5 daily alarms
The daily alarm reminds you about recurring events with an acoustic signal at the time you have set. This model has 5 independent alarms for flexible reminders of important appointments.
Each time you stop the alarm, it sounds again after a few minutes.
Button tones on/off
The button tones for using the mode button can be turned off. This means that the watch no longer beeps when switching from one function to another. Preset alarm or countdown timers remain active when the button tones are deactivated.

Times can be displayed in either a 12-hour or 24-hour format.
The tough mineral glass resists scratching.
Hollow case structure
A structure that lessens the force of external shocks by supporting the module at just a few points inside the case. It also utilises the high cushioning material, urethane resin which absorbs shocks while offering durable performance.
A protruding configuration adopted for the case and bezel provides protection against shocks resulting from drops from any direction. Also, the band in a curved shape acts as a shock absorber, thus guarding the back of the case from direct shocks.
