The G-Shock GW-B5600HR-1 is a “Heritage Series” model. Like previous HR editions, the GW-B5600HR-1 pays tribute to the traditional black and red G-Shock colors of the DW-5000C-1A. It’s not a direct replica but instead uses the classic color scheme in a new way.
The GW-B5600HR-1 has red bezel lettering and a black composite resin-link band with red inner links on the underside of the band. The back of the case that attaches to the stainless steel case back is also a red color. The watch also has silver buttons like the original G-Shock and a dark reverse LCD display like the other Heritage Series watches.
The GW-B5600 base is one of the most advanced “square” models and features Tough Solar power, Multi-Band 6 radio timekeeping, and Bluetooth mobile link. The module’s functions are identical to the full-metal GMW-B5000 series.
Update: We spotted the GW-B5600HR-1 for sale in late January 2019 at the Incheon International Airport (Terminal 1) in South Korea.
Update 2: The GW-B5600HR-1JF is a February 2019 release in Japan with a list price of ¥26,000 JPY. The GW-B5600HR-1 is also a February 2019 release in Asia.
