The original digital-analogue G-SHOCK is now in metal. Welcome the AW-500-1E, the 1989 release reimagined in a striking metal edition.
With meticulous attention to detail, we’ve brought back the iconic resin-clad original, now in stunning stainless steel. The bezel, case, and band are ion plated to achieve the original shade of black, and rounded links in the metal bracelet band mirror the design of its predecessor. Features a screw back case and bold Arabic numerals at the 15, 30, and 45 markers for a clear, quick read.
More than just a nostalgic journey back in time, this watch calibrates with radio-wave time signals and comes equipped with the Tough Solar power system, a high-brightness full-auto double LED light, and World Time to ensure convenient functionality and precision timekeeping.

What to do with Broken Watches? 

G Shock Battery Replacement

G Shock battery life ranges from two to six years, depending on how often you use the alarm or the backlight. Frequent use of either feature drains the battery pretty fast hence, the need for replacement. The life of the replacement battery, on the other hand, depends on how long it has been sitting on the shelf. Its shelf life is ten years in room temperature after which it goes through gradual degradation.

G Shock Strap Replacement 

G Shock watches are known to last a lifetime, but the bands wear out after prolonged use. To replace them, place the watch facing downwards on a soft cloth, unhook the spring bars located at the base of each strap. Some models have the bars covered while others are exposed. Use a spring-bar removal tool to unhook and pull the band away from the watch. Repeat the process to remove the other spring bar. Replace them with the rod slots of the new band and use the spring-bar tool to fasten the bands. The procedure applies when replacing rubber straps. Metallic bands require a little tact hence, the need to engage a professional.

Watch Glass Replacement 

A scratched watch glass can be annoying, especially for people who are overly attached to their G Shock watches. Some scratches can be repaired while others require replacements. Please contact us for more information.
