We're excited to share with you some images of the first G-Shock concept watch.

Rather than being for sale, this solid gold DW5600 is a one-off conceptual watch that was created by G-Shock's founding father, Mr. Kikuo Ibe.

Mr. Ibe had long desired to create a solid gold watch as a way to symbolize G-Shock's toughness, using one of the toughest metals on the planet: gold (solid 18 karat gold!).

On the 25th and 26th of August 2015, Mr. Ibe was in Sydney, Australia to personally show local media the watch.

Mr. Ibe revealed that it cost around $100,000 just to create this one-off G-Shock.

The Full Metal 5000 is a brand new, specially crafted all-metal timepiece.

Inspired by the first G-SHOCK model, DW5000C, this upgraded original boasts a modern lustrous color way while maintaining a vintage aesthetic.

The watch also incorporates one of the first and most iconic G-SHOCK case designs, featuring a vintage square-shaped case and bezel with a brick pattern on the face and gorgeous gold color accent.
